Exact specs of my Strat

Hello,

I bought the Fender Stratocaster from my signature a long time ago, and until now never really looked into its specs. Now I'd like to rectify that. The serial number begins with N1, followed by 6 digits, which means that it was built at Corona plant (USA) in 1991-1992.

If all the guitars from this series are similar, where could I find the detailled specs (especially the woods used in this guitar), please? So far all I found was vague, and I don't know enough to identify the woods by myself.

Usually you can email fender support with the serial number and they should have the specs.

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.

Thanks for your answer. I was mostly interested in the woods for the body (alder, then), the neck and fingerboard, as well as the neck radius. If those haven't changed, I will lookup the specs of recent US Strats.

Body wood is alder, neck is maple, fingerboard is either maple or rosewood (maple is the same color as the back of the neck, rosewood is a darker brown with a wider grain) and a 9.5" radius.

Assuming this is a USA Standard model.

Many thanks. Yes, it is a US standard. And the fingerboard is darker, so it has to be rosewood.

This Saturday I will get to try (and maybe buy) a Music Man JP6, it's going to be interesting to compare.
