Great sounding and pretty 2005 strat.
The deluxe upgrades of the V2 American deluxe(listed below) were a home run, great options and sound choices.
The small nicks on the necks(shown in pix), are easily buffed by a good guitar tech, if they may be bothersome and this is the only reason why this is not a mint item.
SCN noiseless pickups that were designed by Bill Lawrence,
Neck shape:modern C, 9.5" radius.Schaller designed, staggered locking tuners (staggered means your strings are pulled properly across the nut and it eliminates one of the two string trees found on older Strats)Contoured neck pocket.Beautiful inlays.
Two-point tremolo system with solid stainless steel block saddles. The two-point tremolo greatly decreases the amount of friction found in the old 5-point tremolo system which means is stays in tune much better when doing more radical bends. This is the same tremolo that Jeff Beck uses and you know how much he uses his. The solid stainless steel block saddles have more mass than the cheaper bent-steel saddles found on the lesser Strats which means more sustain and a better anchor to the bridge.
