So this guy here on craigslist wants to trade his 57 Fender strat reissue for my Schecter Hellraiser.

Here's the ad: http://chicago.craigslist.org/chc/msg/1864619175.html


Now since he replaced the neck with a warmoth... how do i know this is actually a 57 strat reissue? there's no serial or anything so i'm kinda just taking his word for it.

anyone know any surefire ways i could find out if this is what he says it is?

ask him for the certificate of authenticity he should/would have got with it. no C.o.A. = not genuine.

Did these models come with a Certificate of Authenticity?

im sure all fenders come with a CoA. my mates MiM even did so i'm guessing MiA special series ones such as the 57 reissue would come with one!

okay. I'll bring up the COA. I already asked if he had the original neck. waiting for a reply. Apart from those, any other ways to identify this guitar as authentic?

Just so you know, it may not even come with a C.O.A.; they stopped including them with the '52 reissue Telecasters in 2006, but I have no clue about the '57 reissue Strats.

I think there would be a date and a signature in the neck pocket if it was an authentic body.

hmm... alright. it seems a little much to ask that he completely take off the new neck to show me the pocket. The actual color of the strat lends a little bit of credibility too right? Surf green finish is pretty rare right?
