So I inherited this guitar so I know very little about it. I was wondering if anyone knew what make and model this is. It has a Fender Body and fret board but the head stock is not the famous Fender head stock. Thank you for any answers.

Is there a spring cover on the back for the whammy bar? Pull that off and see if there's any identification. When you change strings, do the same with the pickguard.

are certain the body and neck are fender? In that case it might just have a replacement headstock

I often see that headstock on Craigslist entries by people who won a cheap guitar in a raffle and don't know how to play it.

I think it would be pretty easy to tell if it was a Fender by plugging it in and playing it. Hell, you probably don't even have to plug it in.

@SWilson- I have done that but the guitar was painted blue so I could not see anything as far as an identification..
@RetroGunslinger- I am not certain but the body does look like a Fender Stratocaster body
@SGRocker400- there are no signs that it was cut. it all looks the same with coloring and what not

and I saw a Gibson Explorer guitar online just now. the fret board and head stock look alot like that but I dont think that the head stock on my guitar is tilted enough to be from an Explorer

judging by the assorted screws used etc it's a project guitar. so the headstock could just have been modified by the "artist". lol

never saw a 1 ply '62 RI pick guard before.

the other thing that sticks out at me is the small fret markers.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

@testekleez- ive only played this guitar so im new to the sounds of the different guitars..
@SGRocker400- the prevous owner was actually a woodworker. but i dont see why he would have done that when the Fender head stocks are trademarked and what not

because he thinks he's artsy.

I think what you have there is a Nothing. Does it play well? Do you like it? I think that's all that matters now. Since you have no real investment, its just a question of measuring its minimal storage costs against your enjoyment of playing it. If you're not going to play it, find someone who will.

I can tell you just from the number of screws in the pickguard it is not a Fender guitar.

Looks like your typical off-brand copy. It's not worth anything significant, at the very most $75. If you like it, play it.
