    While investigating the electronics in my strat I noticed there is no large ressesed hole routed under the pick guard or in the neck pocket why might that be? The body from what I know about the guitar should be from 2005 20180706_011234.jpeg

    Is this a Classic Series Strat? if so they have different routing.....the hole/round route is usually only on Standard Mexico Fender Strats, not the higher end models.....

    that worm route looks like it was done with a drill bit.

    I guess it's a classic series or something it has the classic series 50s Stratocaster neck at least but has that little badge thingy 20180706_160956.jpeg 20180706_160944.jpeg 20180706_161007.jpeg

    2004 was Fender's 60th Anniversary as a company, so many products had that little badge in the back...it's a 2004/05 Classic Series 50s, obviously the pickguard is changed - was 1 ply white originally.....string tree changed to 1954 Strat / Tele style

    100% stock nothing to worry about, and the 'hole' is not ever found on this model that I'm aware of....only lower end Standard Mexico Fender Strats.....

    You can verify the model by typing your serial number in here

    It’s a 2006 50s Classic Series Strat. You can email Fender Customer Support with the serial number and get all the specs.

    Wormhole route seems like a traditional reissue style. Body seems fine.
