Its in really good condition, but the weird thing is that although the case always stayed at home, it has some scuffs on it. I only ever kept it at home, it was stacked up with other guitars so that's when it may have happened, guitar has all the original case candy. It seemed to me that the person I bought it from never played it and kept it under the bed, I've had it for about ten years and its been a studio guitar .The neck plate has a crack in it for some obscure reason was like that when I bought it. It sounds great and plays really comfortably, I vowed never to sell this one but my music room has no space for me anymore , a few guitars have to go and I've become more of an acoustic guy in recent years.


The Fender American Series features subtle but distinctive touches that set it apart from a stock Strat. The most visible appointment is a "Diamond" inlay on the headstock. It features a shiny, classy-looking faux diamond (actually a rhinestone) set into the wood within a banner that reads "Sixty Years." There's also a special chrome neckplate with the classic Fender logo over a special 60th anniversary diamond graphic and the words: Diamond Anniversary 1946-2006. As a final touch, the Fender hardshell case in which the guitar arrives is covered in a special Silver Solarium material and the interior is lined with a dark red plush and embroidered with a 60th anniversary logo.
The American other special touches bring together old-school Fender style and tone with new-school thinking in a one-of-a-kind way. The first of those features is a set of three American Original '57/'62 Strat Pickups with the middle pickup reverse wound and reverse polarity. It's the first time Fender has ever done that trick with these more-vintage-than-vintage pickups, which have the original-style staggered, bevelededge Alnico 5 magnets and Formvar magnet wire.

Combine that with the Delta Tone wiring–which features a no-load tone control for the middle and bridge pickups–and this axe is capable of scorching vintage tones. Delta-Tone wiring is an old Fender trick for producing just a bit more midrange and hotter output from the Strat. The no-load tone pot works like a standard tone knob from positions one-to-nine, but at ten it is removed from the wiring completely so that you get the full, unadulerated sonic output of your pickup. It means more output and more treble without using a booster pedal or active controls. An American two-point trem with stainless steel saddles, pearloid fretboard dots, plus parchment knobs and pickup covers complete the 60th anniversary package.
