I just picked up this nice MIJ Stratocaster from a local music store. I've thoroughly examined the guitar, and I can't identify it at all. The body is gorgeous two-piece ash, a fantastic piece of wood, very light and porous for that resonant sound, and I can't say for certain whether the finish is poly or modern nitro-lacquer. It definitely seems thinner than some of the other 2ts MIJ strats that I have, and the wood grain is clear and striking. Neck is V-to-C gloss (not satin like all of the other MIJ strats I own) maple with a MIJ JD13 serial. Based on the serial and the ash body, the catalog is telling me that this could only be either a 2013 ST54-VSP or a 2013 ST54-FSR. Here's where it gets weird. The neck has a ST54 stamp on it, but no FSR stamp like the pictures I find online of confirmed FSR strats. Faded marking on the pocket that I can't read, but the neck pocket does show serious craftsmanship as it was clearly milled with extreme care, as opposed to the other strats I own that can be a little rough. I applied a magnet to the tremolo block, and there was no attraction, so I'm assuming it's zinc. But the strangest part are the electronics. Based on the stamps on the pots, these appear to be the original Japanese electronics, but the pickups have the ceramic bar on them and are clearly not Alnicos, which I thought both the FSR and the VSP came with standard. I can't think of any cheap strats that come with ash bodies, so I don't think this is some kind of shady partscaster. Could any experts/collectors offer their opinions? Here's the corresponding ebay link with tons of pics: http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-5...0001&campid=5338148356&icep_item=272994482632.
