What year is this strat? Can anyone tell me please?
I’ve never seen a fender with those saddles, the 12th fret dot spacing looks unusual, the shape of the transition from fretboard to headstock behind the nut looks strange as well and there isn’t a single makers mark or serial number.
I’d take it to bits, have a look but I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s not what it claims to be.
good looking though, and looks good quality
Whip the scratchplate off, see if there are any clues there. The neck looks very similar to a Classic Player 50s.
Take the neck off and see if there are any stampings on the heel. If I'm being honest I find it strange that it doesn't have a serial number on it, it's like it was a replacement neck and they bought the water slides for the front and left the back alone. I used to have a MIJ Strat that had a bridge that looked like that and it was an 80's model if I remember correctly. It has a nice vintage look and if it plays well that is all that really matters.
That bridge is frickin weird. Kinda cool but definitely not Fender.
Let's see what it looks like under the hood, maybe there will be some identifying marks inside. Stickers with part numbers, a stamp or patent number on the bridge...
Don't be surprised if none of it is Fender. Where did this come from?
Here is more stuff I came across. Is any of it good?
What about any of this if you see anything that looks decent please let me know.
To be totally honest....
We would need incredibly detailed photos of EACH individual guitar or body, these photos you're showing tell us nothing......they could be all fake....
The Strat you first asked about was probably not a factory Fender, it was made up of Fender or aftermarket parts and is therefore worth much less....
"stuff I came across"? Like; "You were just walking down the street, minding your own business, when you accidently fell into an open doorway and saw these things just sitting there"... ?
I'm assuming you mean that someone is selling off some of their gear, although (if I were that person) I definitely wouldn't be letting perfect strangers inside my guitar room to photograph my entire collection.
BTW, what's their address?
...I promise not to rob them...
All the bodies are from fender corona. Trash
They take the necks off hit them with a hammer 3 times then throw them away.
Somebody told you this, and you believe it???? It's not true
I can spot at LEAST 2 bodies that are made in Mexico if they're legitimate.....
The saddles on the Strat in the first photo look kind of like Wilkinson saddles as found on the VSVG model, but the bridge plate doesn't have the Wilkinson logo and it has regular screw holes instead of the oval ones - so maybe it was a knock-off of the VSV/VSVG?
How else are you supposed to fix somethin' that ain't broke?
Dude that looks like a barrel of fun
That’s a lot of cool gear if it’s any of it is legit
Not if the CNC machine was on the fritz that particular morning.
It's all crap. Send it to me for safe disposal.
That sir is a candy store to my eyes.
Is it just the pics distorted or does that look like a neck radius of about 6”?
