    Good morning everyone!
    I have a guy gonna sell me a 2003 american strat for $550.
    I don't know if it's a standard or what model it is. Any help would be appreciated. I guess I'd like to know if it's a good deal and Maybe what pickups it has and general info on this guitar! Thanks guys!

    Looks legit and the price is right. I wouldnt hesitate.

    It apears to be a Standard, but no matter, grab it!
    If you want specifics as to what it is, send the serial to Fender (I forget their email at the moment) and they will send you the build specs.

    According to Fender it’s an American standard made in January 2003. Maple fingerboard three tone sunburst.

    No. We all noticed but we decided not to mention it in case he tells us the reason for his name. It might be best not to know...

    If he is, we don't need to know. If he isn't, we don't want to know.

    :cool:

    I hope you move fast on that guitar. It won’t last at that price. I love the Am Series Strats. Very solid era for FMIC.

    Well guys I purchased the strat. It's a beautiful guitar just one thing I wasn't told about but I got it anyways... the frets are worn ou. I couldn't pass up $550, but the frets are worn out.
    I'm not sure if I need a refret but I was gonna try1 a fret dress first and last resort a refret.

    Awesome grab. What did the PO use for strings ... barbed wire?
