Fender American Traditional Strat was manufactured from 1998 for only a quite short time to replace MIM Fender Traditional Strat series from 1996 to 1997.
I do not have the full spec, but as I know, the body wood is Poplar.
Both were of Fender quality instruments and with affordable price.

I have had one of it. It is, in reality, a MiM Standard built in USA. The body is a Mexican poplar body, the bridge is an Vintage Stratocaster (MiM), the neck with rosewood fingerboard, 22 mediums jumbo frets, 12 inches radius clear satin finish and Schaller American series tuners, pickguards (mexican double magnet) single coil with small pots switch. All its parts are of the MiM Fender Standard. Traditional is written on the front side of the headstock (extremity of the headstockl). The serial number is on the front side of the headstock.

My guitar is from 92-93 (Serial Number is N30XXXXX...) and the Factory specifications are:

-Poplar Body
-Rosewood fingerboard
-21 frets
-A Really cheap bridge (I don't know wich brand is)
-Ceramic Pickups (with two magnets like MIM)
-Three play white pickguard and play white back cover
-Original american fender tuners (made by schaler)


It comes with hardshell case (red tab) and was bought in Venezuela on 1994 in a fender authorized dealer.

The guitar especifications are the same of the Mexican Fender stratocaster standards untill 2006 at least. Is a very good guitar if you install upgrades like new pickups and rewire the circuit.... The pots and five positions switch that comes from factory are too bad.

I recommend www.acmeguitarworks.com to find original fender parts for replacements and upgrades.

My guitar now use the followings:
-Vintage Noiseless Pickups (versatile and very good pickups)
-Callaham Bridge (A bridge made for Callaham Guitars On Virginia, "Amazing" - Remember that this guitar is like a MIM Strat, the string separation is diferent than the american vintage. Callaham has a tremolo with this specification)
-New wiring with cotton cable, CTS pots, CTS 5 position Swicth, and Orange Drop Capacitors

For now my guitar sounds perfect and is in pretty good conditions on her 16-17 years of life

Errata corrige Post 21 Feb 2010 18:18 : the bridge is an Vintage Stratocaster (MiM). [b]This sentence is inaccurate[/b]. You read, please: the [b]bridge is an economic Squier bridge, with metallic saddles[/b]. Thank You and excuse me.
