I'd suggest getting a used Squier or something instead. Several Rogues I've seen have had serious structural issues. Plus, Squiers are going to be a lot easier to find parts for.

The original 50s strats had a thin nitro finish on them. It wore and cracked easily, especially after marinading in bar smoke and poor climate control for decades.

If it's a USA Standard strat it'll be Alder.

What other specs do you want to know? Most of them haven't changed too much since 1991 for the MIA Standards.

String trees are wrong for a MIA, no? Should be just one of the T-shaped trees, not two bent ones. Guess it could have been a stripped neck, actually makes some sense if this is just a MIM body and...

Does it actually have chips? Or is it just a PCB?

2011 would be about right for the PCB connectors but if it's got an actual active circuit in there it's been tampered with.

Sounds like it might need a fret level either way. If you've adjusted the truss rod and the bridge properly odds are the frets or neck are messed up.
