How can you tell?

Honestly it just looks like a genuine Fender, It doesnt look "cheap" unlike most copies do.

Also, take this to the Electric Guitar forum.
Purple string dampener scrunchy.
Looks like a typical 80s MIJ Fender Mustang. A closeup of the bridge and back of the headstock serial # would confirm.

Not my favorite guitar. Short scale, down market PUs, student quality guitar. Personally I like most Squier Teles and Strats better but hey, some famous folks played em.

You lost me at "Lubricate."

I'm raw, like nature. Nature boy. Big jungle leaves are my cum rags.

Sometimes I fuck a bamboo shoot.
