          That hole in the neck pocket is for the micro tilt. MIA bodies have 1 circle hole. MIMs have 2

            The big circle hole below the pickup routes is to align the router/cnc machine properly on multiple machining steps, or so I have heard.

              Imma say yeah, I think that's quite likely Bruce, so-so Bruce. Not bad Bruce, but not good Bruce either...




              Fixed your post - the guitar - a bit tough need more pics to tell if its ASH but Yeah Bruce Cambell is an Ash-hole (spelling?)

                    2000 was the biggest body changes in years. When they went to the American series they stopped using veneer on the front and back also.
                    Mine has 10 penned in the the trem cavity. This one looks like DZ.
                    In 2000 they strarted using Z in the serial number , the D could be deluxe my guess because it's ash?

                      I think the seller did say it was from a Deluxe strat. I wasnt paying attention cuz I was busy verifying the guitar he was selling.

                      I thought the Deluxes have the offset neck bolt for more room on the higher frets

                        If it weren't lefty I'd say that was a MIM Deluxe Players Strat in Crimson Red Transparent... But I also don't think those had microtilt.

                          From looking on Ebay, I saw a 2000 delux with the normal symnetrical neck bolt pattern.

                          I wish I had money, I want to swap the parts from this guitar onto the body.
