Hey folks,

I was wandering through a pawn shop a while ago and i found a deal I couldn't turn down, a lefty MIM Strat. Guitar dater project says that it's a 96 or 97 from the Ensenada plant.

That's all i know about it.

I'm very new to Guitar (about 3 months in) and I'm VERY happy to be owning and playing a real fender. It plays much nicer then my Epi SG Special (to be fair thats a righty guitar with a lefty nut).

The thing is is I don't know what this is, if anyone can ID the model, what kinda pickups it came with, what kinda bridge it is (I think it might be a floating trem, but i'm not sure), and any other interesting trivia they may happen to know.

Thanks in advance guys pics are attached!

Looks like a run of the mill MIM Strat to me.
Vintage tremelo that is present on all non-"Super" Strats.
Lefty though. That's what makes it special.

looks very standard to me.

what led you to believe this was anything other than a run of the mill MIM lefty standard?
within you lay everything
every key
every secret

untouched and in plain sight

absolutly nothing....

then again I know nothing about past guitars and I wasn't 100% sure that it was a standerd, I wasn't sure from the reading i'd done.....

anyone have any decent links on maintaining a strat Tremolo?

Worked out to be $150

I Paid $200 for it two soft cases, and a Lefty Typhoon Strat style guitar.
