I wanna believe he didn't know, and just copied and pasted what the previous owner said. But you're right about everything else, I'll just pass.It's hard to know man... I mean - *is* the body original? It could be, I'm not really expert enough to say... but - if you Google 'AVRI Stratocaster Neck Pocket', you'll see that most examples show a neck pocket that has *at least* one extra hole... this one doesn't... and the more I look at the stickers - I think as @Guitarmageddon has suggested, it looks like somebody literally went to the trouble of printing out fake stickers. The barcode stickers usually have rounded edges, not squared - a very small detail yes, but when you add everything up... the font on the backplate, the serial number results / other... I'd be very weary.
Out of principle, I wouldn't be spending anything. Not that's it not worth anything of course - it could be the best guitar in the world, but... for me – I'd be avoiding it because the seller hasn't been forthright at best - and if you ask me, at worst - is knowingly selling a guitar as one thing, when he knows it is not that thing.
Probably not what you wanted to hear!... good luck though
Thanks again folks
