I have received help from a couple Fender employees that worked there for many, many years - one for 34 years in fact.
Couple of these workers are no longer working there.
In the mid 1970s the "Thick Skin" high gloss all-polyester finish was introduced.
When the Corona plant was started up, only the Vintage Reissue Stratocaster models were produced between late 1985 through 1986.
While some were sold as a "Plus" they were sort of a hybrid have Fender's new Noiseless pickups, yet retaining the locking tuners, roller nut and American bridge.
These went on to be the American Deluxe Strat Series. (Why you are at it, check out my wild and crazy Custom Strat Plus guitars!
The model went through a series of changes through the years.
Here's a few little tips to remember to help aid in dating those late 1970s and 1980s Stratocasters: Fender's three-way selector switch was updated to the Stratocaster's 5-way in 1977.
Even then, some of the info was not dead accurate due to some fat-fingering and data entry mistakes!
Hey, it took a while till they got the bugs worked out of the entry system! Rob Schwarz, who worked there for around 35 years in Fender's PR dept, said he never saw that entry in the data-base while helping me with info on Strat Plus guitars.
