Hi Guys, what do you think of this? Headstock and scratchplate look wrong

Not sure if it's new or old

^ Never tried one but (as far as I'm aware, anyway) it was a legit MIJ model OK. Probably just don't pay too much... I could be wrong, but I don't think they were as popular as the more accurate strat copies, there has been more than one occasion when a shop in the UK was blowing them out (new) for not all that much (no more than the price than that advert, maybe less).

EDIT: I think it has a fair bit more modern spec than the vintage-style ones, with the wilkinson trem and all. So that's probably worth bearing in mind.

Thanks Dave, yeah I'm sure it's a good guitar, but just doesn't look right. I'll stick to my Springy!
