    Now I don't know much about these but I think this guy is trying to pass off a regular fender standard strat as a classic 60's. I mean look the headstock logo isnt correct for one, it doesnt have the aged plastic and it has a maple neck. Maybe im wrong and this is a version that I don't know of but if not, this guy is really dumb to try to pass off a maple neck'd standard strat as a classic 60's

    I'm not sure I'd call it a scam. It's got a Buy it Now price of $450. Perhaps the seller has misidentified the model.

    Definitely the wrong headstock logo, trem arm, and tuners...good eye.

    I thought if it was solid Alder, the tummy contour would have sunburst spray.

    Maybe I'm wrong.
