I picked this up today it was $500 and very clean.
Ok this is what I know its stock except for the Sperzel tuner upgrade, the color is Gun Metal Blue and it has some kind of TBX or something hooked to the Bridge pickup its passive boost I opened and looked. It has all three stock single coils not sure the kind there either. Any tech specs would be welcome :)

American Standards from the 1986-1996 period came with the TBX. Fender switched to the DeltaTone system in 1997.

Pickups are AlNiCo V with flush polepieces. Changed to staggered in 2000.

The TBX affects the middle & bridge pickups. Neck pickup uses a standard tone control.

Well I took her for a spin last night and actually used her most of practice everything from rhythm slide work and lead. Love this strat. Dont think much of the tbx tone control though.
