Something seems off about this Strat, and I'm not sure what it is. Anyone care to chime in?
It looks like a Bitzacaster to me. Bitza this and bitza that.
Mexican neck for sure, maybe body but the rear cover middle screws look more MIA to me. Maybe there is an MIM model that has the middle screws offset. Wrong knobs. Neck plate has something (serial number?) stamped there.
The horns look off to me, maybe it's just me.
Body contour looks bizarre too.
It's not just you. Reminds me of one of Dali's clocks.
Whatever it is it's going to sound pretty awful with the bridge saddles all in a straight line like that.
Body contour is wrong. And the bridge has the cheapest squier saddles I can think of.
I got fooled when I got my first fender strat. It was a cheap squier body with a MIM neck. So, I know lol.
Also the string tree is not correct I guess...
Who knows what body/electronics/bridge, MIM Standard neck with a replacement round string tree.
It almost makes me want to contact the seller to say something, I would hope he's not intentionally selling a sham!
the neck is a 2006 mim and someone has replaced the string tree.
i dont think the body is a fender.....probably a squier.
That's REALLY fake, yikes!
Almost all MIMs have offset screws. Only the early MN0 models have parallel maybe the mim squiers too, but any modern mim made in the last 20 years or so should have them
Fake neck plate as well.
Early to mid 50s style. Probably just liked the look of it.
As others have said, neck looks legit MIM, albeit with a replacement 50s style string tree instead of the standard butterfly one. Top horn definitely looks wrong, bridge looks too cheap for MIM and (hard to tell for sure whether or not it could just be shadow) on my phone it looks like the neck plate has a plastic/rubber washer as found on some of the Esp Ltd range and other far eastern made bolt ons.
I thought the neck plate had the gasket as well.
Looks like a Prodigy body to me:
