I found this on CL this morning. He wants $50obo for the guitar and amp, and I obviously don't need the amp, so it may end up being even less. I have already asked about some specifics about the guitar (origin, info on the crack, etc), so I don't have too much to say about it yet. It is missing the tremolo springs (which are easy to replace), and it has a pretty gnarly crack in the back and some scrapes on the cutaways, it appears. I also have questions as to whether or not this is a real Fender. The headstock looks odd.

If the crack is simply a finish crack and nothing detrimental to the functionality of the guitar, would this be worth pursuing?

Thank you


Here is the post verbatim:
"This guitar doesn't have the springs in back and is cracked. I used [them] for decoration. Have both items $50obo."

Bad pics but it looks like those large fender headstocks. I'm no fender guru though.

And theres something on the 12th fret.......

She insists to wear this lights.

I don't think so.

How can I persuade her?

Ask if anybody has called on it. Offer like $30 and see if they take it. The amp could be resold for $30 ....maybe at least $20 so the whole deal wouldnt be much of a loss.
Looks like maybe a Maher strat copy.....could just be about any kind of copy.
What the hell!!!

I would post better pictures if I could, but I can't. I only have what was posted on the add.

And I had a gut feeling that it was a weird copy of some sort, but I was kinda hoping it wouldn't be. I'm still waiting for the guy to get back to me. I'll report back when he does.

There's no way that's just a finish crack, it's a split in the wood.

If it IS a Fender, which I doubt, then it's a completely knackered one lol
Actually called Mark!

Thanks. That's all I was looking for. I'll stay away from this one, then.

Id still check it out. It's real tough from those pics to tell if it's a fake. If it were a Fender (or even a Squire) and had all that mojo I'd rock that bitch on stage with pride.
