I bought a new American Special Strat on Friday (oly white with maple fretboard) and it came with a certificate of authenticity from Fender.

Is this something that Fender just started doing this year? Previously, such certificate only came with CS guitars.

ps - I had an empty Fender "FDP" case and had to fill it, right? (:oD But seriously, I've be jonesing for one of these since I sold my Ultra Bright Sounding White 70's Classic Strat.

I have not heard anything of this which begs the question....why was I not informed!!

Congrats on the Oly but as long as I have been around I have yet to see a picture of this alleged strat.

What color guard?

Yes, the MIA guitars now come with a coa. They are styled a bit less fancy (no date, no signature) than the CS ones and only feature model number and serial number but it´s a nice addition, I think!

supersonic - Thanks for confirming this.

Modal Magic - I love the light satin finish on the maple fretboard. You can actually feel the wood.

Therealfrogman - The pickguard is a standard issue 3-ply white.

Leftee - Those Strats come with dental floss strings, right? (;oD

Pure nickel? I though it would be titanium or some material dentists use to make crowns? (;oD

You brought a strat but you have sold a strat.

Have you maintained equilibrium at 5 ?

Enquiring minds need to know :)
