This recent trade in is a great example of the Elite series Stratocaster that Fender did for several years to update the Deluxe series. It seems the rosewood fingerboard versions are a bit harder to find and this one has has a great set of tones to choose from. She's in great condition and ships in the OHSC with paperwork & whammy bar shown.

From Fender -
Fender’s American Elite Series gives you everything you like about classic Fender guitars—plus features that make them even better-suited to the demands and style of today’s players. A better Strat…? Might just be.
The American Elite Stratocaster features 4th-generation Noiseless pickups (exclusive to the American Elite Series),offering vintage-style Fender sound with noise-free performance. You get crisp, clear single-coil definition as well as gigantic overdriven tones that are bursting with pure rock power.
A new compound neck profile delivers comfort and easy playability. A modern “C”-shape at the nut morphs to a modern “D”-shaped profile at the asymmetrical heel, for enhanced left-hand playing feel. An ebony fretboard has an incredibly smooth feel for effortless note bends. A double action truss rod adjustment wheel makes it a snap to adjust the instrument's neck relief without any special tools.
An S-1 switch—mounted in the volume control—activates alternate wiring options (series /parallel) for more tonal variations. It engages or disengages at the tap of a finger for on-the-fly adjustments.
Locking short-post tuning machines give you easy re-stringing and enhanced playability by providing increased break angle at the nut, plus improved tuning stability. The American Elite Strat comes with an ABS Elite molded case with TSA-approved locks.
