    I was in Canandaigua NY last weekend for a funeral. wife and I took a walk down the main street and saw a music store, so we went in. There on a stand was what I thought must surely be a fake stratocaster.

    Sonic blue, mint pick guard, aged pickup covers, truss rod adjustment at the heel, legit looking decal, rosewood neck that didn't look right somehow. Vintage frets, but looked to be 9.5 or 12" NOT 7.25 Price tag $485

    Thought to myself, this has got to be a fake. Didn't get to see the back of the neck. Dismissed it and we walked out. But now I'm wondering.

    Any thoughts?
