    Might be a Squier body. They come/came in navy blue, and a replacement pickguard with a MIM neck.
     
  4. Id bet money its a mexican standard with a replaced guard.

    yeah im pretty sure its new it had all the stickers on it like new i only got it for $500 because it was a 2011 guitar and couldnt be considered new (i guess) he said no previous owners just sat in the store for a year

    its not navy blue its just the bad lighting in my room its a lighter color i believe fender calls it lake placid blue
     
  7. Thats a 10 hole guard, pop the guard off and see if there are enough extra screw holes to where a 13 hole guard would fit and if there is a CNC hole under neath , if so its a MIM standard body with a changed guard, its obvious the neck and tuners is all 100% stock MIM and as I said id bet the body is.

    I took off the guard and yeah man 13 screw holes and a cnc hole so does that mean its a stock 2011 standard with a replaced pickguard
     
  9. Thats what i figured due to the MIM neck and the LPB finish is now a MIM color, 500$ seems like a fair price for a new MIM but if you have a problem with it , id return it as the owner wasnt exactly honest and its possible he didnt know as well , but still unfair to you.
