I found a lefty MIJ Stratocaster for $100 in a local second hand store. I wanted to research it before I pull the trigger and I am having a hard time figuring it out. The headstock says "Fender" in silver letters, nothing else. At the base of the neck above the heel it says "Made in Japan" with a serial number below it. The tremelo and saddles looked cheap, no Fender markings. It looked great, a little light weight but I have a feeling something is fishy with it. I have owned MIJ Fender strats, they were probably the best strats I've ever played but I remember them saying "Fender Stratocaster" with Fender saddles . I would love to own this and flip it Hendrix style but again, it looks off. Is there a year where the headstock only said Fender? The saddles lead me to believe it is a Squire type "cheap" model.
