FDP Forum / Fender Custom Shop / 2012 Fender Stratocaster Custom Shop Deluxe

I need some info on this CS Deluxe strat which has been offered to me with case and all goodies inside and COA.

It is finished in black with maple neck but neck plate doesn't have a Custom Shop logo engraved nor the serial number on it!

Is this legit?

I browsed through the custom shop Vault page and the previous discontinued collections through the years and there under 2012 CS Deluxe model seems that there's no strat in black finish?

Check it here:

Can someone please explain to me is it normal that neck plate is not engraved on that series and not available in black finish.

If you click on the individual models, you'll see that many were offered in a variety of colors, including black.

Is there a serial number elsewhere on the guitar?

Is there a Custom Shop decal on the reverse of the headstock?

If you feel uneasy, than pass on it.

Yes there are plenty of them around, unfortunately quite expensive here in Australia.

Thanks I'm glad to be here Pinetree.
