Hello everybody, I am new here and this is my first post. I am happy finding you here, and I need your help. I want to buy a Fender Stratocaster, and this is my first guitar - that's way I have doubt. I found this: Fender Stratocaster HSS REPLICA | Musical Instruments | Gumtree Blacktown . I already call the seller and he was telling me is an original American Strat, and the serial no is: Z3059690. I have check the serial here: The Guitar Dater Project - Fender Serial Number Decoder , and it says is American Strat. ok. can someone to confirm the reality ? and what about "replica" ? what is that means? it worth the money? please, help me with an advice! thanks to everyone in advance!
