    2001 American Series Stratocaster. My dream guitar. Oddly enough, it started off as kind of a bad omen when the local guy I took it to for a proper set it up shortly after buying it in 2001, said it had a broken truss rod. The morning of September 11, 2001, I was unable to sleep due to the WTC attack and took the strat to the fender rep to set the wheels in motion with Fender to get a replacement neck. So the serial number on my original receipt doesn't match the one on the back of the neck as I've come to know so well in the intervening years.

    The guitar has grown with me over the years with the addition of vintage style tuners, Custom Shop '54 pickups, and a blocked trem.

    Still the most comfortable guitar I've ever owned. A joy to play.

    Sorry for the poor photos. This is all I can find on this computer.

    Cool EE, but that's not a 1980, it's likely a 1987.

    Idk, that's what the guy who bought it brand new said who i got it off. I emailed fender but the guy who was replying said their database only goes back to 1993. Awesome vintage guitars though Joe, although never been on the look of the jaguars.

    I'm finally back in Stratland again. I just got this American Standard in Oly White a couple days ago. I've been without a Strat for a few years. My last 1 was a Warmoth Partscaster/Boat Anchor that weighed a ton(my own mistake to order without checking weight). I had to sell it as it far to heavy to play on my injury damaged neck.

    No weight issue with this one.

    It's been a couple of years at least since I've owned an Am Std. I sold the last 2 Blizzard Pearls I had to fund a Warmoth which was a big disappointment, then replaced that with an excellent MIM Std Strat. But, the call for an MIA Fender has always eaten away at me, so when I saw this FSR Am Std V neck in Mystic Sunburst, with £300 discount I couldn't resist any longer. The pics don't do it justice tbh. Nice light weight, build quality 100%, sounds great with the Fat 50s, (though I may replace those with my DiMarzio Noiseless at some point),and am loving the V neck. After playing it for half an hour I didn't even notice the V anymore. :)

    Picked up this '16 American Standard the other day at Guitar Center. After years of cheap guitars, I was finally able to invest in a keeper; something I would enjoy for a long time. And it feels right.

    I wish I'd taken some arty photos like these. What a lovely colour Mystic Aztec Gold is.
    I'd have bought two if the ads had been like this.
    Here's mine lying in its case.

    My Am Std Strats among their friends. Ironically, I have a Mystic Aztec Gold 60th Anniv. Am Std, too. How many of those did they make anyway? Feels like a lot at this moment.
