    I just wasn’t sure if do to when the guitar was made if the specs or equipment was different from 2000 as opposed to now.
    made me so much better about the purchase I knew when I picked it up and played it...it wasn’t a regular strat it felt too good. One to the collection!

    Although as I look again at the OP's, that could very well be a nice example of alder.

    Really? How come?

    But I'm inclined to agree - for 600€, I'd grab one, but for 750? Just not enough to justify the price!
    If others feel that way, not many will be bought new and even less will come up for sale used.

    It’s alder with a poly coat. They didn’t start doing the lacquer limited editions until a few years ago. Guitar Center is listing these used between $500-600.

    You haven't had breakfast either?

    That's crazy, but at least I ain't the only one...

    I think you misread the word poplar (wood) as popular. These models are actually very popular, they were just never made from poplar.

    Depends on how much I've been drinking, and how desperate I am to get out of there. :oops:

    No matter what if you get that you should call it YOLA since that is what it looks like it says on the neck. [​IMG]

    "Nitrocellulose lacquer is one of the great original-era Fender electric guitar finishes, and is still used today on select instruments. Thin, porous and delicate, it’s a premium finish prized for sonic qualities that let body woods breathe with their true tonal character, "

    Geez Fender!

    In the back of my mind I was wondering when the lacquer editions began...

    Looks like he still got a super deal for $400, though.

    $400 is an ok price, not really a "deal". Nice guitars.
