Quite a few differences compared to the 50's Classic Player Strat. I didn't know the neck (without stripe on back too) radius was 12" on the 60's, unlike the 50's at 9.5". Of course the 50's has the "V" neck and comes with 57/62 pickups. Another thing that's nice about both of those are the fact that they come with 10-46 strings instead of the 9-42 Fender uses mostly. Enjoy that thang!

I think the reason the guitars may have lowered in price may be because they were the same as an American Standard or they stopped using custom shop '69 that were signed by Abigail Ybrarra...

I don't know if they (the prices) were even lowered at all, but if they were, the reason is anybody's guess. Like I always say..... Fender keeps ya guessin'!
