    May it be counterfeit?

    Need more pictures to tell you, front and back. Enter the serial number intonfenders website and see if it comes back as described.

    Yeah it looks real to me also. So far nobody is faking MIM stuff, at least not here. But it might come up as a different model, or color at Fender's website, which is why I suggested it.

    Looks great!
    I'd be inclined to think it's all good.
    But can't tell for 100% sure that it is what it's claimed to be on the basis of those pics.

    The only way to tell for sure is to take it apart and see if everything matches the factory identifiers.

    Body routings should be vintage style (no humbucker routes, etc). Any date stamps should be reasonably close to the serial number and any other stamps or stickers should match the codes for this model (Google “Stratocaster Service Diagrams”):

    The pictures are marked by a Turkish shopping website, so unless that's where you're looking, I'd suspect a scam of some kind.

    I’d say the only thing wrong is the rosewood fretboard :whistling:

    Swap the question, ‘any reason to suspect it is fake?’

    I'm wondering why the pics gace watermarks. If I was considering buying, which is I why I'm assuming you're asking, that would run me right off

    I can see that though, if it's legit they probably don't want anyone to pinch them to promote something that isn't, if you see what I mean.
