My mim is a 2000-2001 and it has staggered pole pieces with the stock pickups.
My Strat MIM I just picked up on Craigs List for $212.00 inc. shipping to my door--Nice guitar:!:
Heck of a deal...nice✌
Bought it 'used' last summer;looked un-played, still had plastic film on it.
Killer deal, but that's not why I bought it. Bought it because of the way it played, felt, sounded and looked, the deal was gravy- would've paid 'full boat'.
Stock, and staying that way.
I'm in! Bought mine brand new in 96. Was my first new guitar after playing a beat up Ibanez RG550 for 5 years.. Black w/rosewood and it is pretty dreamy. Got a black HSS pickguard for it and threw a Duncan Distortion in it. Still 'tuxedoed' though since I never replaced the white parts hehe.. It was "the one" for all those years until it was dethroned last year by my Classic 60s Tele..
This is the closest I have at the moment, although I've been through a couple hundred over the years. 04 MIM body, no name tele neck, SD stacks at the neck and bridge, MIM middle, black aluminum guard, hardtail conversion bridge. I have a new graphite nut waiting for the next string change. I have to admit, even after flipping 500+ guitars over the last 12 years I STILL get excited to buy MIM Strats. Just love them.
My first good guitar :*)
Bought as a Fat Strat in 1998 but I never really liked the humbucker so pounced on a Wilkinson pickguard/pickup assembly for cheap a few years ago. Jaguar knobs because I have alien sweat or something that turns regular knobs green and it's pretty disgusting, GraphTech saddles because 16 years of exuberant manhandling had corroded the originals so badly I felt the guitar deserved better. So many scratches, dings and memories, I love this thing.
Two things I would like to do still is replace is the tuners which have two screws each (top left and bottom right of the unit) but I've never seen a drop-in replacement and am not too confident in drilling my own. Anyone tried this and is it easy to do without making an arse of things? Also kind of want to replace the sustain block with a steel one but I can't locate one in Europe at all.
Dang. Every time I see a black/tort strat I want another one!
Some beautiful guitars here. It's been a while since this thread's been active, but I was wondering where you all go for your parts? In particular, the pickguards?
I went to Warmoth to get my custom single humbucking and two pots guard.
Mim body, Warmoth neck and guard.
I bought my candy cola MIM from a guy that belongs to my Masonic lodge. $125. It and my tele are the best guitars I own.
NGD: 1996 mim Strat. Traded for an amp head.
Here's mine , the only changes are the black pick guard , it was originally white .
Here are my MIM Strats.
White standard Strat, sonic blue 60's Classic player, surf green 50's classic series.
My MIM Strat
Here is my 1998 brown sunburst.
I added an LSR roller nut, changed the pick-guard from white to black and changed the pick-ups to Custom Shop Texas Specials.
Here's my 2011 MIM Standard, Lake Placid Blue...I love this Strat. I put some Seymour Duncan Vintage Rails Neck / Middle and Cool Rails in the bridge, and it sounds great.
The pic isn't that great, took it with my phone.
"The Fender Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar is the guitar design that changed the world. This affordable model offers legendary Fender tone with classic styling, but at a price within reach of most budgets. The Fender Stratocaster includes three single-coil pickups, synchronized tremolo with high-mass bridge block, tinted neck, shielded body cavities, medium jumbo frets, parchment pickguard and '70s-style headstock logo. At this affordable price, why play anything but the real thing?"
