Stripped finish but still a great deal. In Kingston. Judging by the case, saddles, and serial, this is a mid 90’s Strat. I’d have already bought it if I was in the area and didn’t just buy a third Strat.

Stratocaster

Excellent condition? If that were true it wouldn’t be $600.
While obviously not excellent condition in the finish department, there’s no denying this is a $900-$1100 guitar in the current market. This is going for less that the majority of MIM options.

Neck is American Standard with 22 frets but the bridge is 6 point. Could be a US body etc but hard to tell without taking it apart. At $600 it could be worth the risk that's not a Squire with an AS neck on it.

It's most likely a circa 2005 Highway One which was the budget level American line at that time. Considering the body needs a refin it's priced about right at $600. Unmolested these fetch $900-$1,000. Good project guitar for someone.

It took me 6 months to get $700 for my Highway One just a few years ago. Awesome guitar, too, with a hard shell case. Mine had the big headstock, though, which I think is part of the Hwy 1 design?

This is my conclusion as well. Serial number (Z5...) is 2005. The large frets and dual string trees both point to Highway One. That would also explain the 6 screw mount bridge.

Got $1100 for mine back in June.

Yup, I missed the 6 screw bridge. And for some reason I thought my 90’s Tele had a Z serial number prefix, but its actually a N. Maybe not quite the deal I initially thought, but certainly not a bad deal either.

If it's a hwy 1 I think it's still a good deal. Any US Strat neck is worth $400 and up in good shape. And if the body and the rest is also hwy1, it's a $20 can of paint away from looking much better.

That looks legit to me, I would probably buy that if I was in town & it felt good. That would be at least a grand in my neck of the woods.

Well, it’s still up, so it’s scaring a few folks away.
I’d be inclined to agree $600 is a better than average Kijiji deal for American made Strat.
