I'm buying one off local CL and can you guys tell me if its a real fender and if the price is right?

Since I'm new to electric guitars, so I don't know too much about them. I have tried fender strats in local best buy and I like the feel.
The seller ask for $600. It does come with the case. How much lower can I go? I'm a college student and I'm looking for super awesome deals!

From what I can see in the pics it looks like a legit 2000-2001 American Standard... or was it American Series in 2001? Anywho, that Strat right there is the last year that American Standards had the 12" radius on them. After that, almost everything from Corona had the 9.5" radius.

$600 seems fair. I paid $640 for my '99 American a couple years back.
