    hard to tell from the pic because of the greenish tint,
    but the truss rod adjustment surround would be Walnut on a Custom shop piece, it looks black to me, which says Squier to me.
    Bad custom shop waterslide decal and wrong waterslide decal for the front as pointed out but I would guess its all Squier.
    good luck

    If he's asking 275, you're not going to get it....because it's only worth about 200 tops BEFORE being defaced with a Fender logo....the Fender logo LOWERS the value.....

    If I couldn't get it for 150....I'd pass....and I'd probably not even offer that because the seller will feel insulted....just walk....

    You'll find another that isn't defaced....

    If there is anything even slightly wrong with a back-story, I consider the whole story false. When it comes to pawn shops, I wouldn't even believe a story I couldn't find a hole in. I would buy the guitar only for what you know it to be - in other words, how it plays, sounds, looks, and how you personally value those attributes.

    That's exactly why I hate it when people slap Fender logos on Squiers... It usually winds up in some crap like this... Even if the original owner had "good intentions" and planned on keepin it forever... I guess I can't complain too much, because if more people dug Squiers and weren't ashamed of them, they'd be a lot more expensive... And maybe WE wouldn't all be in this little "club" together... But, dammit, man... Say it loud, it's a Squier, and I'm proud... Lol...

    Definitely a mess. Maybe the pawn shop received that story when they took it in (Really though, in 2018 do major companies really show up at major industry trade shows with "prototypes"?). Maybe the pawn shop created the story. Maybe the current seller created it. Occam's razor says someone bought a Squier and wanted a Fender...

    Thanks everyone for help. Glad I posted here. When I finally get my Jagmaster, I will return to show you the mods I want to do on it.

    definitely looks like someone has just replaced the Squier bit of the original logo, which is good news since that means it's probably otherwise stock.
