    Well, the MX prefix denotes a MIM guitar. This suggests it was built in the 2018-2019 time frame. It may be a Vintera or Player series, but I can't be sure. One of the more experienced heads here will likely know.

    Just one picture won't really tell us much.
    Could be any of several different models.
    Like OldStummer said, it's a Mexican-made one,
    Though I found a |Fender Serial Number lookup and it came up as
    1 MX18052274 0144512515 PLAYER STRAT LH MN PWT 05/2018

    Hmmm, then I guess Guitar Center owes me a case. I'm looking at the 1996 price list, and the last 3 digits in the Model # indicate whether the guitar comes with a case (7 or 8) and the final 2 digits are the color. If the first of the last 3 digits is a 7, then it comes with a standard case, if it's 8, deluxe case. 5 would be no case.

    I typed my guitar's serial number in Fender's lookup tool and it gave me the Model Number. My last 3 digits are 780, so it should have come with a case, and it's Arctic White. (they got the Arctic White part right).

    Oh well, I bought a Musician's Friend case for it and it's been doing fine for all these years.

    I believe you can send an email to customerrelations@fender.com with the serial number and product info and they'll return a spec sheet to you.
