    My 2004 Am. Std. Strat and I give you two big thumbs up!

    Side note: I could've sworn that my 2004 Strat had a Swamp Ash body. Huh... the more you know. :confused:

    So the guitar has been in the box all this time and it still yellowed that much?
    Guess it isn't just a UV thing...

    Exactly.

    Put the plastics away and just use a new set.

    DON'T PEEL OFF THE STICKERS, you would be removing history....

    Yes, I think it's something else. My friend's 89 Strat spent 25 years in the case, the pickguard turned creamy.
