Oh no it isn’t

Well, the headstock, the scratchplate, the pickups, the tuners, etc. :)

Not true. One of the screws on the scratch plate looks right. ;) :)

I actually love the placement of the stickers on the headstock. It's like they've gone to the internet, made a list of every sticker they could see, sourced those, and said "right, where can we put these"! It's hilarious.

It's actually a pre-L screw, dating to 1963, or could be 1964. Many people confuse these, as the width of the cross on the head is .95782344 mm for both years. The only way to tell the difference is to measure the depth of the cross - for 1963, it's 1.09761524mm, for 1964 it's 1.09761522mm.

People who know their Fenders can hear the difference, there's clearly more depth in the sound of the 1963 screw.

If anyone's interested (which I suspect no-one is, but as usual I'll bang on anyway, sod the lot of you :D ) this is an East German-made Musima, probably mid-80s. Identifiable from the combination of the protruding truss adjuster, and the odd use of rather classy Gotoh Resolite tuners.

Loads of Musimas seem to have been sold unbranded, which as this one shows, makes them a prime candidate for the application of fakey stickers.

Dunno if the gen-u-wine Fender screw makes it worth the £77 it's currently bid at.
