    Update! More advice on fender strats deciding my next purchase?

    4. would be my choice. Y2K MIA Strats were 4th Gen , had better body contours, Delta-tone system electronics. It's approx 10 years newer than 1. or 2. And is the least expensive of the lot. Changing the white guard to mint or parchment and plastic ware to parch or something more vintage will...

    String trees

    If better = more/greater, I would think so. Should be less downward string angle after the nut with non-staggered.

    Which Colour do I go with? - About to pull the trigger!

    Pieces, PIECES of wood. Plural, MULTIPLE. One piece Fender bodies are, and historically have been, extremely rare. As one member put it: One piece bodies are as rare as hen's teeth.

    That shouldn't even enter into the decision.....unless you just want another guitar for wall-art.

    Which Colour do I go with? - About to pull the trigger!

    That's a tough choice. They all look great. But I don't favor 3-tone sunburst and I do favor rosewood necks. So I'd probably take the blonde one. If your preference is the maple neck, the choice is easy.

    Would you rather have a Ferrari or Kurt Cobain's Mustang?

    "The right" one is correct. Cobain's Mustang guitar or Niki Lauda's F1 Ferrari would be a better comparison.

    If I received either (for free) I'd sell it and pocket the $$$$

    When pick ups you generally don’t like all of a sudden sound great?

    The Deluxe Power Strat has 500K volume control, 250K tone, and a Fishman bridge. Your other T-M equiped Strats probably had 250K volume control , no humbucker, and no Fishman bridge. Apples and oranges.

    You choose some, and ignore the others.

    Locking tuners

    Both.....I have Schaller locking tuners on 2 of my Strats , and Gotohs on the other. All 3 guitars came factory equiped with the locking tuners, and all have great tuning stability and no tuner "creep" when bending or using the trem.

    Another question: how much does battered finish affect value? *New pics third page

    My guess then is that you won't be buying it. Offer $350 , and negotiate from there....

    Trem Block Alignment, Is This Normal?

    Agreed...that might be a "close shave" if doing a full dive with the trem. Not much room for a pull up either...the trem must be decked. I like the Am Std trem blocks...there is so much room in the cavity, if the springs creak there's an echo.

    Any know what will replace the American Original series?

    ...and in 1978, gas was 65 cents a gallon. In 1992 my first Strat Plus was $600.

    For your benefit: significantly: adverb.... def.: "in a sufficiently great or important way as to be worthy of attention."

    Any know what will replace the American Original series?

    Not having his signature on it would , hopefully, reduce the price significantly.
