Guys, I need your urgent help! I beg it! Here is whats "the problem" and try to answer all my question to help me and find aout about this guitar. Ok, first of all, I found my favourite color Strat (MIA) to buy... Don't ask about price etc, its not important.. Just try to answer those things which are bother me very much. The Strat is - "Made in USA". It's 2001, serial on the headstock is : Z1029215. When I went on this site to identify guitar by it's serial number : https://www.fender.com/product-registration/serial-search-results Site founds out that the name of this guitar is : AMERICAN DOUBLE FAT STRAT® (2000-2003) Serial #: Z1029215 Brand: Fender Product Category: Guitars Also, the owner of the guitar disassemble neck form the body and we could see date - "18 apr 2001" which means when the neck is built. Right now, on this "White rosewood USA Stratocaster" is pickguard from Fender with EMG DG-20 (David Gilmour) pickups set. And thats ok, I will have some question about that later. What bother me about this guitar? 1) Guitar is heavy. Heavier than other ALDER USA Strats. Why? Is this ALDER body or maybe poplar, ass or even basswood (I suspect maybe body is from the other guitar (Mexico ones? Japanese one? Or some "no name body" ? ) 2) I thought this guitar was "Fender Stratocaster Standard Arctic White 2001 with SSS conforugarion", but when I wrote serial code into Fenders site (see above) I found out this was AMERICAN DOUBLE FAT STRAT form 2001/2002. Whaat? Is this real or what? 3) The next problem which bothers me is this: Owner said guitar body has "unfamous swimming pool routing" under the pickguard. Did those 2001 Strats had "swimming pool route? I thought I was reading here that swimming pool was just in 90's, and with 2000 and until now that swimming pool has changed to HSS or HSH... SO HOW CAN THIS BODY FROM 2001 TO HAVE SWIMMING POOL ROUTE? I suspect that ONLY NECK is from 2001, and body is different - maybe from other guitar. From which one? Is this some "Frankenstrat" guys? Please help me I am hopeless, I like color of the guitar, David Gilmour EMG set, guitar plays fine, BUT... I am not gonna buy Frankenstrat, USA made neck and "who knows what body". 4) Can we trace down which 2001 Strat models had this WHITE COLOR? Its interesting, its not "Olympic White" cause OW is "creamy white one". This is something like ARCTIC WHITE, or POLAR WHITE, or SNOW white. Body is white like snow, like pickguard - the are the same exact color. 5) The last thing which bother me! - The owner said, the original 11 screw Fender pickguard couldn't match "guitar body's wholes" Whaaat? Yeah, that was my reaction. So what he did? He cut some of the plastic from the pickguard so pickguard screws could match guitar body wholes for the screws. Jesus, how even is this possible ? I thought all Fender 11 screw pickguard could easily match every MIA original guitar body, how could those 2 be "matchless" so you need to cut a little bit that pickguard to become matchable? And yeah, the one reason more to think - that white guitar body IS NOT MIA, its not from Standard series or AMERICAN DOUBLE FAT STRAT. Heey, or American double fat strat body has different positions for the screw holes than MIA Standard series? Is this answer and solution for the thinking problem? Or is it fake body? I am gonna put you some pics guys so you could see it all by yourself.... So I assume that was "AMERICAN DOUBLE FAT STRAT" and first owner replace H-H pickguard and put some random SSS, and those last owner (which is selling) put EMG DG20 pickguard on it, but not with original EMG perloid pickgurad - He used just EMG SA pickups and EXG and SPC pots and put them on Fender 3ply all-white pickguard. Which he need to cut a little bit cause "the screws didnt match with guitar body holes for the screws. And could somebody know something about this color? Did Arctic white or "Whatever this white is" exist in 2001? On Standard or American Double fat strat" guitars? Please help me, I am thinking to buy it but I will not if I found out the body isnt original.
