Between 2000 and 2008, Fender American Series Stratocasters were being built at Fender's plant in Corona, California. The model would then go on to be renamed the American Standard Series in 2008.
This particular Strat is an earlier one from the series with a serial number that suggests a build from the year 2000. That said, it really doesn't show its age... this guitar is in fantastic shape. Freshly strung and set-up, it plays and sounds killer.
Included with this guitar is a hardshell case intended for a right-handed strat.
