9. Standard Stratocaster (version 2 1983-1985) – Revised Stratocaster with new features. New neck shape (1.700”wide, flatter 12” radius, truss rod adjuster at headstock), small headstock (unless noted all USA Strats will now have the small headstock) 4-bolt neck with micro-tilt, 3 hotter pickups, new “Free Flyte” top-loading trem (with springs hidden under the pickguard instead of in a cavity in the back), sealed Schaller tuners, master volume, master tone, and output jack on the pickguard. Marblel finish limited production series introduced for 1984. Plastic molded case.

 

10. Elite Stratocaster (1983-1985) – Upgraded Stratocaster model with all-new pickups without exposed polepieces that utilize a “dummy coil” under the pickguard to reduce hum. New control layout with 3 individual push-buttons for each pickup, master volume, 12-db active mid-boost, and master TBX tone control (two pots in one that rolls off highs or lows). Jack moved to rim of body, new knobs with rubber inserts, sealed Schaller tuners, and Free Flyte trem. Same neck shape as Standard Stratocaster but with Bi-Flex truss rod.

13. American Standard Stratocaster (version 1 1986-2000) – All-new USA Strat designed by FMIC with different features than the CBS “modern” Strats. The American Standard would retain some features like sealed Schaller tuners, Bi-Flex truss rod, and truss rod adjuster at the headstock. However, the neck was 1 11/16” wide and 9/5” radius with 22 medium-jumbo frets. The pickups were new, and the controls were revamped to be master volume, tone control for neck pickup, and TBX control for the middle and bridge pickups. A new trem was designed with the traditional spring cavity in the back but pivoting on 2 posts and with anodized cast saddles; a hard-tail bridge was also available. The neck had a satin finish available as either a maple one-piece neck or with a rosewood fingerboard, and the body was alder with new colors available. Schaller straplock strap buttons were standard (but the locking clips were not included). The pickups and controls were updated circa 1997 with the “Delta Tone” circuit – a hotter bridge pickup and a “no-load” tone replaced the TBX (no load meaning the tone was bypassed if you click past “10”). 1994 models featured a metal “40th Anniversary” badge on the headstock. Headstock logo was the same as the final CBS-era with “Fender” in silver outlined in black, the serial number below the logo, and the “Telecaster” in small caps like the vintage decals. Changed to a modernized spaghetti logo with the serial number and “Made in USA” moved to the back of the headstock circa 1997. Limited edition colors were released (usually 4 per year) during 1995-1997; all limited edition color models use the modernized spaghetti logo with the serial number on the back of the headstock. Several cases were used starting with a rectangular black plastic molded case, followed by a “violin” style molded case with a metal “Fender” logo, and finally a violin-style case with “Fender” molded into the top.

 

14. Strat Plus (1987-1997) – An upgraded American Standard Strat with these additions: a roller nut, satin finish locking tuners, a Hipshot Tremsetter (a device that held the trem stationary when not moved by the arm), and noiseless Fender-Lace Sensors with gold labels (signifying they had a vintage ‘50s “voice”). Schaller straplock buttons and locking clips included. Originally came with a Wilkinson roller nut (1987-1993); two versions were used: version 1 (1987 only) had dual rollers for the 3 plain strings and single rollers for the wound strings; version 2 (1987-1993) had dual rollers for all strings. Replaced by LSR roller nut in 1993. Very early examples may have Sperzel tuners, by late 1987 all had Schaller tuners. Cases were the rectangular molded case followed by the metal-label molded violin-style case.

 

15. Strat Plus Deluxe (1988-1997) – Further upgrades to the Strat Plus model. Early version just change the Fender Lace Sensor models to a blue label/silver label/blue label set (blue label was a ‘50s PAF humbucker “voice” and silver label was a “fat Strat” “voice). Unique finishes were offered. By 1990 the model had been altered to have ash veneers front and back on the body, a blue/silver/red label Lace Sensor set (red label being a “hot Strat” “voice”), and a snap-in trem arm. The final change occurred in 1993 – at the same time the LSR nut replaced the Wilkinson, the bridge was upgraded to the “Fender/Floyd Rose” locking bridge, the Tremsetter was removed, and pearloid or shell pickguards were added. Same cases as Strat Plus during run.

 

16. Eric Clapton Signature Stratocaster (version 1 1988-2001) – A signature model for Eric Clapton. Features an alder body, special sharp “V” shape maple neck with 22 vintage-size frets and 1 5/8” width, satin finish, and vintage tuners. Pickups are 3 gold-label Lace Sensors, and controls are master volume, master TBX control, and an active 25 dB mid-boost. Per Clapton’s instructions, the vintage-style trem is tightened down and blocked so it can’t move (but can be unblocked if the owner so chooses). Neck shape gets a bit deeper and less sharp circa 1995. Tweed case.

 

17. Yngwie Malmsteen Signature Stratocaster (version 1 1988-2001) – A signature model for Yngwie. Features a 22-fret neck with a scalloped fingerboard and 1 5/8” width, small headstock, brass nut and vintage tuners. Vintage trem, 3 DiMarzio pickups (these will vary per year as Malmsteen altered his signature pickups for DiMarzio), vintage controls, 3-way switch. Maple or rosewood fingerboard. Tweed case.

18. HM Strat (1989-1992) – An unusual piece; these could be MIJ or could be assembled in the USA with MIJ parts. Features a down-sized body, 24-fret 25.1” scale 1.700” wide neck, typically HSS with Fender single coils and a DiMarzio Humbucker. Controls are master volume, master TBX tone control, and coil-split for humbucker. Also available in a single H version. Early models used the Kahler Spyder locking tremolo; later models used the Original Floyd Rose. Molded case.

 

19. Strat Ultra (1990-1997) – Upgrades to the Strat Plus Deluxe model feature a different Lace Sensor set: blue/gold/dual red (the dual red was 2 red Lace Sensors in a humbucker housing). An additional control was added – a mini-toggle to select the front/both/rear coil of the dual Lace. The body featured figured maple veneers front and back and transparent finishes. The neck featured an ebony fingerboard with abalone inlays. The metal hardware that was normally satin finished (Schaller locking tuners, Wilkinson roller nut, and bridge saddles) were chromed. In 1993 the Strat Ultra also changed to the LSR roller nut, “Fender/Floyd Rose” locking bridge (and the Tremsetter was removed), and pearloid pickguards. Case was the molded plastic violin-style case with the metal Fender logo plate.

 

20. Jeff Beck Signature Stratocaster (version 1 1990-2001) – A signature Strat for Jeff Beck. Based on the Strat Plus, the Beck features a very deep neck with a rosewood fingerboard, the original Wilkinson roller nut (with single rollers for the wound strings and dual rollers for the plain strings), and 4 gold-label Lace Sensors (gold/gold/dual gold in bridge), master volume, tone for neck, and TBX for middle/ bridge; additional push/push switch to select rear or both coils of the dual Lace. Can have either Sperzel or Schaller satin-finished tuners. American Standard bridge set to float upward more than usual. At some point in the middle 1990s the LSR nut replaced the Wilkinson – likely when no more Wilkinson nuts could be found. Tweed case.

Juan65, todas las YJM made in USA hasta 1996 son como la que vos tuviste. Es un error de la lista ese.

Las YJM tiene 21 trastes vintage con trastiera escalopeada, cejilla de bronce, puente moderno de 2 pivotes y hipshot atrás, Dimarzio hs-3 en el puente y mango, y un Fender en el medio, clavijas vintage tipo kluson, la de mango de maple tiene la tira de walnut atrás, la de palo de rosa no -cosa que una tenga look 50's y la otra 60's-.

Si, si, estoy ojeando unos folletos viejos de Fender que me regalaba un comerciante que vendía instrumentos y eran tal cual vos decis. Que lástima que no llegan más esos folletos, mostraban todos los productos y las fotos eran hermosas, por lo menos para engordar el ojo, saludos !

[edit] General features

Vintage style “C†profile neck with a 9 1/2" radius.

21 medium jumbo frets.

Vintage tremolo, tuners and 4 bolt neck plate.

3 Ply WBW pickguard.

25 1/2" scale length.

 

[edit] History

Manufactured from 1997 to 1998 by Fender, the California Series Stratocaster, Telecaster and bass models were a joint effort between the company's factories in Corona (California, USA) and Ensenada (Baja California, Mexico). The body and neck parts were made in the United States while the finishing and painting was done in Mexico before their final assembly and quality control in the US.

 

 

[edit] Technical Information

The Fender California Series Stratocaster guitars have USA vintage style tremolos and tuners and other hardware. The tremolo bridge spacing is the same as the Fender USA vintage bridge spacing 2 3/16". The Fender California Series Stratocaster bodies are routed for a single neck/single middle/bridge humbucking pickup configuration and have a polyester paint finish. They do not have the infamous "swimming pool" rout. The single coil pickups used on the Stratocaster model are Fender Tex Mex, in a usual 3 single coil arrangement or a 2 single coil and 1 Fender USA bridge humbucker Fat Strat arrangement.

 

The California Series Telecaster model also features vintage hardware such as Kluson-style tuners and a vintage bridge with six individual steel saddles. Medium jumbo frets make string bending and playability by far easier in contrast to the usual thin vintage frets. All Telecaster bodies of this particular series were routed for a humbucker pickup in the neck position. There were two options of the pickup configuration: Either a "Fat Tele" pickup arrangement with a Fender USA humbucker neck pickup and a Tex Mex bridge pickup or a Stratocaster single coil pickup in the neck position combined with a Tex Mex single coil bridge pickup. The serial numbers are in an AMXN + 6 digits format while the first digit represents the year of production. AMXN7***** means the guitar was manufactured in 1997.

 

All Fender California Series have "Made in USA" on the headstock.

This model uses the LSR roller nut. Originally available with either the Deluxe trem bridge or the Deluxe Locking Trem bridge; the Locking Trem bridge option dropped during 2007. Molded plastic case.

La California no está incluida en la lista porque no es un instrumento construído 100% en USA. Eso está aclarado al principio: Sólo Guitarras hechas en USA.

 

18. HM Strat (1989-1992) – An unusual piece; these could be MIJ or could be assembled in the USA with MIJ parts. Features a down-sized body, 24-fret 25.1†scale 1.700†wide neck, typically HSS with Fender single coils and a DiMarzio Humbucker. Controls are master volume, master TBX tone control, and coil-split for humbucker. Also available in a single H version. Early models used the Kahler Spyder locking tremolo; later models used the Original Floyd Rose. Molded case.

 

Y porque esta si?

Me sospecho que la California no se vendió en USA, sólo fue para exportación...por eso no la registran. La lista que publiqué está tomada del Fender Forum y la publicó un coleccionista.

Lo que podemos hacer es ir recolectando más info y corrigiendo errores, y después se las reenviamos corregida. :D

Claudio,

 

La 13 es de verdad, tiene 3 singles coils y palanca casi normal. Las que dudo son las de samarium cobalt, noiseless, etc. Las de mango Caoba o humbuckers ya no son stratos...

 

Saludos,

Juan.

La California por lo que se estaba tambien armada en Mexico, es decir todo hecha en Usa y pintada y armada en Mexico, sin ofender a nadie es solo mi opinion personal, tuve un par de estas y creo que fue de las peores strat que tuve pero esto es totalmente personal.

Un modelo extraño, decia made in Usa pero de calidad era como una Mim standard.

¡Muy buena data este catalogo!

Yo tuve la 22 (SRV) (¿alguien precisaba comentarios?) y tengo la 35. (nueva 62ri). La cantidad de modelos de Strato que existen ahora y sus grandes o pequeñas diferencias hacen mas laborioso encontrar la que es para uno. Aparte en Buenos Aires dificilmente puedas probar la mitad de ellos. Pronto puedo hacer una review de ambas violas por si resulta útil.

 

Saludos

Pablo.-
