Remember

Guitars + Made In China = SO FAKE THEY'LL MAKE YOUR BABY CRY HIS EYES OUT

Never ever trust a guitar made a China that claims to be authentic. You'll regret it.

don't buy guitars being sold in china, there's a very good chance they're fakes.

it's ok to buy guitars made in china, as long as you buy from a reputable dealer.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Loads of low end guitars are made in china, there not fake. I think what you mean is dont buy guitars that are being sold in China.

There might be some Squiers made in China, and also a lot of Epiphones are made in China, but you don't buy them from China, you buy them from a reputable dealer.

Fender guitars (if it has a "FENDER" logo on headstock, not "SQUIER") are only made in USA, Mexico and Japan as far as I know.
my MG15DFX has a button that simulates the sound of one of the expensive tube marshall amps

USA, Mexico, Japan - those are where real fenders are made.

And Korea. For a while they were making guitars in Korea in the Cort and Samick factories.

But, anyway, TS, do you mean it's a guitar that's in china that you're going to have shipped to you or is it a MIC Fender VG Strat? I can't imagine anyone trying to make a copy of the VG Strat....

In anycase, if I were you, I'd ask for pictures of the guitar in and out and the seriel number and then do your research.

Fenders have been made in the US, Mexico, Japan and Korea
