Hi Folks, My first post on the forum so I hope you don't mind. I was hoping somebody could help identify a few things on my strat—like whether it's an alder or basswood body? And whether these are ceramic or alnico pickups? It's a MIJ '54 reissue, made in 1996, with a V serial number. The back of the neck is stamped "ST-54DFX2" (I'm pretty sure that's an F anyway, as you can see in the pics, the stamp is a little worn). Bonus points if you can also tell me what the neck profile usually is on these? The previous owner said it was a chunky C, but others have said it might be V? I bought this guitar back in 2014 as my first "proper" guitar and has stayed with me since. It plays like a dream, but the pickups have always sounded little brittle. So, I'd like to understand a bit more about what its specs are. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
