FDP Forum / Fender Guitars: Stratocasters / Strat American Vintage

I came across this guitar in a pawn shop. It is stamped with a American Vintage V serial number. I contacted fender but they only have records that go back to 93 for these. I am hoping one of you has eyes that can spot details to help me figure what model this used to be. I imagine the Humbucker was added after so the plate may be different from original. Any ideas ? Its 100 bucks so I may take the gamble.

That's no American Fender. Fake.
Wrong body contours, wrong string trees, wrong truss rod adjust opening.
