i just received this today, plays great, and feels really solid and well built. it's a 98-99 American Deluxe, in the color that i have always wanted. the pickups were changed from vintage noiseless to fender custom shop 69's

it has 2 push pull pots. the middle tone control acts as a midrange control. the second tone control acts as a master tone for all pickups.

if you pull the first tone control, you get an out of phase sound like Brian May. if you pull the second tone knob, positions 2 and 4 get a much fatter sound, close to humbuckers. the guy who sold it, said he would describe it as almost like a low output PAF pickup (not identical of course)

EDIT: Here is a video of the features on this strat.

it's a lsr roller nut.

it only comes on the jeff beck strats, and the HSS setup american deluxes.

this used to be a HSS strat but the guy changed the pickups and wired the guitar so that you get humbucker like tones from both positions 2 and 4 instead of just a bridge humbucker.

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.
