    I just saw a CIJ Strat for sale online- a hardtail one! I have never seen that before. Were those a thing? Or is this likely a partscaster? Maybe it’s just my blissful ignorance, but I thought after years and years of lookin at all kinds of Strat, I would have a general idea of available models… Took these two screenshots of the listing, maybe someone knows about these?

    There were several MIJ hardtails made but can't tell much from those very small pictures.

    A buddy of mine bought a MIJ hardtail strat, new from a shop, circa 1990.
