    Rosewood?
    It might be one of the anniversary models, but not the vintage 54.

    Looks like somebody slapped a 60th anniversary pickguard on an American Standard... or something!

    Yeah, I guess. 2 point trem doesn't look too 54 vintage

    Edit: plus, correct me if I'm wrong, but the 60th 54 had the gold Fender decal, not the silver one, right?

    It's either an incorrect description or someone is grossly unqualified to sell Fender guitars.

    Either way, I'd certainly think twice about buying anything from that particular Guitar Center due to sheer incompetence...

    Well, the picture suggests that it's an American Standard? so I think they either have the wrong picture or the wrong description...

    Beautiful looking rig you have there ocean!

    I just emailed GC to let them know the error in the ad.

    Also, does that price in the ad appear to be in-line for a used guitar like yours?

    Price is a bit high for an '06 "pre-upgrade" American Standard!
    JMHO,
