Is the one on craigslist also a custom shop? Otherwise I have never heard of them reissuing a line of '61s.

Do a whole lot of research and make sure it's not a fake, serial number, hardware, neck plate, etc...

if possible try to get a look at the heel of the neck off the body.

Yeah, the big vintage Strat reissues were the '57 and the '62. Haven't heard of a '61.

Yeah, well hes selling it for 300...so im guessing either he got it confused with a mexi strat or its not really a 61 cause theres no way hes selling a custom strat for 300...unless of course he is...which would be awesome...but i doubt it.

Well the early strats had a less rich sunburst so that could explain the unusual look. However, 300 for a custom shop does seem a bit too good to be true. As said above get hold of the serial number.
