The American Standard Stratocaster is the same great best-selling, go-to guitar it has always been, and now it's upgraded with aged plastic parts and full-sounding Fender Custom Shop Fat '50s pickups.
The latest iteration of the time-honored classic, it is the very essence of Strat tone and remains a beauty to see, hear and feel.
First four digits are paired up, 09 is the model number for the Stratocaster, and 00 is the neck configuration, in his case a fretted Maple neck with a Rosewood fingerboard. 38 is the week, 9 stands for the year, 1979, and 3 is the day of the week, which is Wednesday.
Lately it seems a majority of guitar companies date their guitars using the 1st 4 digits of the serial.
I'm sure there are plenty of variations but for the most part thats what I'm running into.
