    ok here is the story......

    I live in Ireland, very rare to get a nice Strat with all the stuff you
    USA guys get like, original moulded case and all the case candy......

    until yesterday.....
    picked up this beauty.....
    a 2005 deluxe..........

    with all this stuff as as well......
    happy days.......



    IMG_1647.JPG


    then, inside was this stuff.......
    noticed the Guitar Center tag.........
    so bought in Usa ? and lovingly brought to Ireland....

    but...........
    my question is............
    (for no other reason than curiosity)..........
    where was it bought ?

    maybe the barcode will help.....
    8 pints of Guinness to the winner....
    in my pub........
    in the near future......

    maybe a GC worker could figure it out ?

    cheers dublindave

    My barcode reader is at the shop right now, but it sure looks like a nice Guitar Center Strat...

    Congrats!

    I have overcome Irish ancestry, but not the love of free Guinness...

    It can. The barcode says 0600560841

    It is obviously a code for state, town and GC store. Hand me my Guiness!

    It shows up for me as an American Deluxe Stratocaster V-neck 2004-2010 in sunburst.

    Maybe you didn't enter it as "DZ5004039"?

    EDIT: Sorry; I didn't use that link; when I logged in to my Fender.com account and acted like I was going to register the guitar it returned the info.
