I'm looking into this guitar http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=443072239

From what I've read the California series was only made between 1997-1999 yet a person who left a comment claims the serial shows it was made 2002.

So does anyone know anything about the California series Strats?

It's not a California series, it's just a normal MIA strat. They are made in the Corona, CA factory.

The person never claims that it's a California series on the ad. Just says it's a MIA strat.

Yeah, that's not a California Series. That's a MIA Standard.
Actually, I go by Dave, but there are already too many Daves on this forum.
