After selling off 2 guitars at a loss, to pay for a guitar/amp deal that I got hosed on (sold out from under me), I find this little beauty with a hard case.

1995 Mexican Strat. I think the pick guard isn't original. The back cover is white and it came with a white single ply pick guard. The word filthy doesn't cover it. I've never needed to scrape before to get gunk off the fretboard... first time for everything. I even changed out the tuners for Fender lockers (had previously for another project).

I'm hoping someone can shed a little more light on its model. AFAIK the rest is original.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

I didn't know if there were models like Lone Star and Deluxe in1995. But a Standard is cool by me. It plays great.

could you put up a shot of the back of the body?

a few more thoughts.

saddles do wear. in my mexi they were all chewed up and had barbs and i was breaking strings, i made a jump to graphtech. they are awesome, i have't broken a string on one since.

if you don't want to go the graphtech route, i would hit each saddle with a file or emery paper (lightly) and smooth out the area of the saddle that touches the strings so that you won't have string breaking issues. its aslo good to hit the string tree too.

graphite in the nut slots is always a good idea, helps it stay in tune better.

have fun!

sustain block could be a nice upgrade too. i will be doing it on mine.

Here is the back...


The saddles are stock and in great shape.

I already have the trem locked down. A sustain block isn't a bad idea.

actually the body is made of poplar not alder for that year.

my 95 MIM is my #1 even over my US made strat. mine'd been modded to be close to Strat Plus specs ( LSR roller nut and spezel locking tuners) as well as changing the saddles to graphtech and a steel block.

I gave Fender Customer Service a call.

Strat Standard in brown-burst, maple neck, Alder body, ceramic pickups.

About a standard as they get... doesn't matter, It's mine.
