Hello Strat friends,

I am about to buy my first real strat, see pics. To me this looks like a real one from 2004. Need your opinions: I’m I right and is this real?
Thanx awaiting for your help!

Looks good. Only better way would be to pop loose PG
Hello

In the logo...it's easy to know dates... pickguard outside... if possible... to see what's inside... electronics and body... in the body usually have a hole that fender USA doesn't have ... nor the squiers (I have two strats MIM... and I never understood why they made those holes)

In my strast (blue 2017 -White 2015) The pickups are ceramic... two bars and the poles are in the middle....pots and other electronics...they are genuine Fender also the ardware. As your guitar is older... the pickups can have another shape... But it looks original...!? see the pictures
