I picked up a fake Fender Stratocaster guitar at my local used music store. Within a few seconds I realized it was a fake. Someone had rubbed off the Squier logo from the headstock and put a fake Fender waterslide on it. In this video I compare this fake Fender Strat to two real USA Fender Strats, a MIM strat and a Squier Strat. Here are the things I identified as a fake... Truss rod opening, Bridge, Serial number, Headstock, Logo, tuners and more. This is a must watch to spot a fake Fender Guitar.
