Might be best to ask this question in the Fender Forum... I bet their archives have this question already answered.

Normally, the country of origin can be determined by a serial number. Also, there is just about always a stamp stating where the guitar is made.

A lot of USA Strats have "Made in USA" either on the headstock or at the heel of the neck where it meets the body.
