It's not a Fender.
Could have been a Squier in the beginning, but just as well one of the many made-in-elsewhere models.
And then someone mutilated it horribly.

Not even close to being real, and the "relic" job is absolutely horrible.
Those "wear patterns", particularly on the back and fingerboard (and 6 notches?) are not anything that would actually happen.
The neck is not US.
Wilkinson pickups? It might be a Harley Benton that someone "reliced" and added the Fender decal.
