Sometimes I make mistakes.  That's not to say this guitar is necessarily a big problem - its a great guitar that has become pretty collectable these days. 

The thing is, I gave it a look and was lulled into dropping my guard.  The guitar is really, really clean, so I got complacent and totally missed the very odd replacement logo.  My employee, Tim, caught it during the verification process.

As you'll see in the pictures, the guitar is otherwise all original.  The neck date, body date, pots and solders all confirm this.  Someone must have worn the logo out somehow and found what I surmise is the lamest Fender Strat logo made by mankind.

The frets showed some wear so we gave it a fresh fret crown and polish so it plays smooth like butter! There are no issues and the truss rod allows for adjustment in case it is needed in the future.

The original case and paperwork are included.
