I've never seen it and it doesn't look like fender. Fender never has, as far as I know, a single humbucker and that kind of color...

A friend of mine has a telecaster version of this model which is identical to it in every way except the shape of the body and headstock. All the other details match up 100%, which leads me to believe it is a genuine fender.

edit: After a little research I believe it's called a Fender Celtic Stratocaster. they are/were made in korea.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

Thanks for that there's hope for me yet!
I'll do some googling and see what come up....
