The anniversary Stratocaster is much the same as the tried, tested and familiar standard American Stratocaster. But with slightly different detail, improved playability and a higher price tag, it is sure to have Strat lovers drooling for many years.

1996 Edition Some features were added to the 1996 anniversary edition, although not all these features were added to every 1996 Strat.

These exclusive features include gold-plated hardware, highly figured veneer and vintage pickups and electronics. All 50th anniversary Stratocasters have a commemorative sticker on the headstock. The 1996 special edition is available in two colors---authentic, vintage sunburst and the hard-to-find candy red. As well as having slightly upgraded features, the 1996 Strat had a limited number made, immediately upping the price and increasing the desire factor for any collector.

My modded 1996 50th anniversary Am strat came with a humbucca and 2 Texa's singles and a 5way.
Mine has been upgraded from then with a usa dimarzio humbucca dropped in and a push/pull
tone pot to split the single coil of humbucca.
This is the best guitar i have ever played and i have played many great guitars.
Finally have a guitar with nice sustain and a joy to play.
That good infact u feel bad playing effects through it.. :roll: .... :lol:

You need to have the pictures up on a hosting site like photobucket; you would insert the URL of the picture inside the tags.

FYI, 1996 is the Fender 50th ann (1946), while 2004 is the Strat 50th ann (1954). :idea:

Yeah, where are the pics? :wink:

Nice guitar. Hate to break it to you but it isn't a special edition; it's eithera modded 1996 American Standard or a modded 1996 Lone Star (which was an American Standard with Texas Special single coils and a Duncan "Pearly Gates Plus" humbucker). All 1996 Fenders had that gold medallion on the back of the headstock. The only "noiseless" pickups Fender used in 1996 were Lace Sensors (on the Strat Plus, Strat Plus Deluxe, and Strat Ultra).

The actual 1996 "50th Anniversary of Fender" limited runs had gold hardware, 3 single coils, and a figured maple top and back. They were numbered; there were matching American Standard Teles, P-Basses, and J-Basses. Photos from Elderly Instruments (this guitar was sold long ago; the page is cached):
