looking at buying a second hand guitar and the fender logo is black with gold edging

the guitar is only labeled as fender telecaster so does the black logo mean it's either mexican or US

or is it fake?

i've asked for a photo of the guitar with the serial number so i can check that, but only jsut sent that e-mail so ahvent had an asnwer yet, jsut wondering if you lot could help

here's the pic

ah ok
was jsut wondering coz theres sometimes a serial number under the logo on the older ones, not sure if it was the case with newer ones

and i waned to check incase i was being done over and it was a squier, because i haven;t seen it 1st hand yet

Take it to electric guitar. I've seen them advise people against some 2nd hand guitars based on the logo. Get them to have a look-see.

Better safe than sorry I reckon.

Or maybe people actually like Teles.

Anyway, I would definitely be cautious, as stevo said it looks sanded by the logo. You could be buying a cheap Squire or something.
