Hello,
I just picked a up a Fender American Strat with a serial number showing it’s a 1995. It is a Candy Apple Red with matching Headstock. I believe it is one of the 1995 Limited Editions but can’t find any references to a Candy Apple red in the Limited Editions. Does anyone have any info on these or know where I can get additional info.

I have posted a few pictures

Definately candy apple red and almost definately a standard. If I were you sir I'd drop fender customer relations a line and see if they can provide any info. They have been really good this last couple of years at helping out with the odd curiosity.

Thanks for All of the comments and feedback so far. I have already sent a email to Fender with Serial number and request to see if I can get more info on this one. Hopefully I will get a response or at least some direction.

I think I may also send a letter. Anyway I will post anything I get back.

I got the turquoise blue one today, and it is freaking awsome. He set it up so the action was low, and god that thing is smooth and lightning quick. The tones you get from it are great, and the TBX really adds to that. It was in new condition, no marks and no fret ware that is noticeable, he was a collector and had 2 of these, but he hung on to this one because he wasn't planning on selling, lucky for me he need another more expensive guitar. Really pleased I got an american made strat and not a mex, as this puts my mex tele to shame, the tele is good just not as good as this. I payed less for this than I would have payed for a std use strat new, so I am happy, in fact I payed half of the new price, and its in new condition, picture to come.

I have the same guitar and just got some info from Fender that "It's estimated that there were around 200 of each color made." Making each guitar pretty rare!
