I have lately seen an ad for a Fender Stratocaster copy in my town. It looks like a regular strat, however it's not.
But the seller says that price with Fender Noiseless pickups is 530KM (which is about 350$). It has 22 frets, I don't know what kind of tremolo. I'm not too much of a purist, but I don't want to buy crap guitar.

There is a problem, though, it's white. I hate white. But I can always paint it, so I think I might get over that because of the low price.

You can see the pictures here.

What do you think, is it worth getting this copy?

I would probably say no. The pickups aren't going to make the guitar worth it if it's generally a crappy guitar. Maybe go play it, go by how it feels and sounds. If it feels like a big piece then it probably is one. I have a strat clone I bought for 120 dollars and it's my favorite guitar. It's all about how it feels and sounds to YOU.

I would say no, I think copies are a fun project to do yourself, but I really despise people trying to sell them. The market is flooded with crap strat copies, and it really is undermining the internet trade. Personally I wouldn't buy a strat from a private seller anymore, it's just not worth getting stung with a fake.

Buy this:

MIJ Fender Strat. The ST-362V is a 62' RI from the mid-late 80's. Hell of a buy if you don't mind the Fender logo being sanded off.

i honestly wouldn't

some fender copies are alright (squier CV standard)

others are about as much use as firewood.

it's your call at the end of the day, but i personally would rather buy a squier CV strat than something that's pretending to be a fender when it could be anything.

It's Bosnia And Herzegovina, actually, but good point.

I would have to say no, also. For about $350, you could buy an 80's MIJ Fender (or Squier-they're both made from Fender, unlike the new Squiers) and get superb quality. It would definitely help if you could play it. If you can't, you might want to hold out for a better, more proof-positive deal.

Darn, I didn't check your location, TS. Sorry bud!
