    My spidey sense says no because of wide 12th feet markers, janky truss rod plug and no skunk stripe.
    Not looking to buy, just checking myself out

    Not sure what that is. The student models had plastic buttons, but I don't think Fender ever used open-back tuners.
    Truss rod adjuster would normally be a bullet, but that's not a bullet cutout.
    Lack of a skunk stripe would be normal for a rosewood board, the truss rod went in from the top.

    Looks like a department-store special from the late 60s or 70s... Some of the Japanese imports had Fender-like headstocks.

    $500 is a bit steep... get him down to $200 and it might be a nice bit of history after you remove the Fender decal.
    Might be an old Framus?
