No.


Well, technically it could be done, but only in the same way that you could change a cat into a hamburger. It's an unpleasant process, and nobody is happy with the result.

I thought it was 9? My MIM is.

most strats come out of the fender factory with 9 - 42 strings. the only exception is artist signature models where it will be down to what the artist uses.

check your model on the fender website.

I've used both. I prefer 10's though. It seems to give a little more bite. I'm sure what dr_john said is right too.

Fenders come with 9's, except for the vintage reissues (both MIA and MIM) which come with 10's.
Since you're asking about the classic 50's, it should come with 10's.

You were right but I had already bought them before I read this, I got 9's and now I have fret buzz to sort out

Damn... well, it's just a set of strings, it's not that much money :P
And when putting them consider your guitar has a vintage radius, so you won't be able to have a very low action (I know, 'cause I have the classic 60's and had the same problem at the beginning).
