this, to make sure it really is a MIJ Fender, and honestly, if it is jump on it, MIJ Fenders are a high quality instrument, and from memory the place that assembled them, today they make $3000+ Ibanez guitars

i bought my 85 mij strat for $350 w/case, i thought it was a steal because the guitars are of great quality and are said to be going up in value

Have you played it? You never know from just pics, it could look brand new but the wiring might be fucked.


Otherwise, yeah, go for it.
