    Yep, I took the high road rather than accusing dude of anything from texted pics. ...

    Dude had an ad on CL for a couple of amps and a "Fender Partscaster Stratocater" for $150 -- but no pics at all. Texed him, and I got these a few minutes after my request:

    20190718_210218.jpg 20190718_210253.jpg 20190718_210234.jpg 20190718_210301.jpg


    serial numer pulls up:

    Serial number: L43030

    Production year: 1964

    Factory: Fullerton (Pre CBS era)


    hmmm ... $150 for a "Fender Partscater" with a 1964 Fullerton S/N?? :eek::eek::eek:

    After the first pic i was thinking a dog urinated on the guitar body.. thats why he would take a pass..

    In a way it's too bad that a true 1964 wouldn't be available for $150, right? But then again the serial numbers didn't look this way in 1964 and the burst finish would have been front and back. So, maybe there was a dog involved after all. A dirty dawg of a mutt caster, that is.

    Maybe even the same dog pee stain on the body. You should get pics.

    It's probably the same serial number as the mutt caster

    But if the stain matches front and back it's vintage!

    @IronSchef you have to get pics of dog pee Blackie.... we need to see if the serial number is the same as the first one he posted on the mutt caster. There must be a Water Slide Cartel gaining power somewhere.

    If it's worth $150 and he's asking $150, what do you care about serial numbers?
