Hi,
I'm looking into buying a guitar that is advertised as a 2007 MIM strat but I noticed that the fender logo is in black instead of the usual silver and also the serial number is not present under the logo like it usually is. Is it possible that this is really a 2007 MIM strat? I've included some pictures below and asked the seller for the serial number, I'll post that when I find it out.







Thanks in advance for the help

Were there any markings on the back of the headstock or on the bolt-on plate?

On my Tele, the serial number is on the back of the headstock.

is it a standard mim strat? that looks like candy apple red?

it reminds me of a tex mex strat. maybe because of the coloring.

anyway, if it's a standard i think it's supposed to be silver with a sn on headstock.

I'm trying to figure out what it is exactly. What is a tex mex strat? I've never heard that term used before.
