Traded my 2008 Les Paul Studio faded for this beauty in a Craigslist post.
Immaculate condition. Aside from everything listed in the Subject line of this post... I have no idea anything on the specs of this guitar.

Any additional insight is welcomed! :mrgreen:

With the exception of a rosewood fingerboard, I have the exact same guitar. Been picking it up more and more lately and still loving it. Not sure if I have any info to hand about spec but will have a mooch and see if I have any :D

Beautiful Strat and amazing colour. I'd take this over a Gibson Les Paul Studio any day. I traded a Swampash Studio for a brand new American Special Strat last year. Best deal I ever made.

Thanks. I have to agree torresfan, my CAR Special Strat peeking in the background of the aquamarine pics is still my No. 1. Kinda like a sore peter...... hard to beat. :o

the tremolo block on this does not appear to be US. Don't all US models have the HIGH MASS block? But, all that aside, she is quite the beauty! Gorgeous color

I was wondering about the tremolo block myself. My Special has the beefier one. Heck, even my Japanese Squier has a beefier trem block. I'm sure there are others out there with a similar American Standard that can confirm if their's is the tapered vs. beefy.

Thanks for the input kingofesquire.

That trem block looks like what I remember the original American Standards, American Series, and even the American Deluxes having. Fender didn't put a larger trem block in this model of guitar until the 2008 revision to the current American Standard model.
