Can anyone ID the year of this strat deluxe


It doesn't have the contoured heel, candy tangerine color, no rolling nut, but has abalone inlays.... So I assume its a deluxe, but don't know the year.

Thanks in advance

That's a first generation American Deluxe Strat so it would be from somewhere between 1998 and 2003. I don't remember the candy tangerine being an initially offered color, but I could be wrong.

Best bet is to get the serial number; that will get you in the ballpark.

Also, once the American Deluxe series replaced the Strat Plus/Plus Deluxe/Ultra series only the HSS models had the roller nuts.
