I am trying to figure out some details about my guitar. I bought it six or seven years ago with changed pickups. <br /> <br /> The question I have is, the pickguard has a date stamp of<br /> <br /> "15 AGO 1998" <br /> <br /> which I believe is the Spanish abbreviation for 15 August 1998. So I have a MIM pickguard on my custom shop guitar, it must have been changed, right? Have COA for guitar<br /> <br /> The guitar has "55 NOS" branded in the pickup cavity, looks like by a woodburner, and "relic" stamped on lower bout under pickguard. Also stamped custom shop logo there.

The body and pickups are Fender Custom Shop items. The soldering does not look like CS work. The pickguard is probably original because I've never seen an ink date stamp on a MIM Strat. Does the COA match the serial number on the neck plate?

Huh. I guess Roger65 was squished by a MetroBus. That sucks.
