OK i just bid and won an online auction for a 2002 American Stratocaster.

I checkd the serial numbers and the headstock looked pretty legit plus the guy comes from a church so i though he was legit too.

But after looking at the body I thought "hey wait a mo, the bridge looks like a mex bridge" and then i looked at the neck plate and im pretty sure it's meant to say Fender® Corona California or something?

oh **** i hope i havnt just bought another mex strat.

Have a look at the photos and tell me what you think.

Thanks

remember it's nz dollars so equivalent to about US$550.

Its american based on the neck. There are no mexicans with 22 frets. Only MIAs have them, unless u have a mex body with an american neck.

yea thats what i thought. MIA neck, MIM body. The Pups are aftermarket. Made in NZ aka MIN lol
maybe if i can prove it to him i can knock the price back

You can make out Made In U.S.A. under Fender on the headstock. Unless my eyes are dying on me.

Regardless, it has active Langcasters and an overdrive switch. I'd buy it anyway.
