hey, im considering buying this strat, but im always wary with all this talk of putting fender decals on shitty guitars.

here is the craigslist ad:

does this look like a real mim fender?
the only thing that gets me:
i looked up the serial number and on the fender site it says that it should be a number with MN1 + 5 digits
but on this there are 6 after the mn1

thanks

It looks like one, don't take my word for it though. I can't see why it wouldn't be.

And if it is a genuine MIM Strat, then buy it. You won't regret it.

is that a good price to pay for it?
it has that ding, but a hardshell case which is a big plus.

I just checked mine at it has 2 bolded letters and a number, then 6 numbers. I assume it is real.
