Hi everyone! I'm about to buy a used strat but I need your help to find out if it's an American or a Japanese made strat. Here what I know : The owner passed away so can't have any Info from him or his family. The serial is on the neck plate and is the Vxxxxxx format, leading to a 1996 model, confirmed by a pencil date written on the heel of the neck. The neck had been sanded off, no "made in japan" can be seen. We can see it was a spaghetti logo Everything looks like a 62 reissue. 2"7/32 string spacing on the bridge. The body had been resprayed over a kind of blue It has jumbo frets but maybe a refret. Rosewood slab board fingerboard. I can try to find any info requested. What do you think? Thanks a lot!
