Question about Music
Is this a good number for a strat? They claim is a 2002.
The guitar is indeed a 2002 fender stratocaster. Many prefer older strats because they believe them to be of higher quality. It also depends on where it was produced. Mexican strats are okay, Chinese are usually the least liked.
N seems to denote American Made Strats though, American made are superb.

There are MANY tricks to remove a threaded piece like this:
1. With a Dremel tool and a cutoff carborumdum disc cut a shallow slot in the remaining piece and use a straight bladed screw driver to remove. This can only be done if the screw is above or flush with the surface.
2. Carefully drill a small hole in the piece fairly well centered. Use an "EasyOut" to remove the broken part.
3. Carefully drill several small shallow holes on the top of the broken part in a line so as to form a slot for a screwdriver.
4. Carefully drill a hole JUST the right size into the broken part and then drive an Allen wrench into the hole to turn the broken part. The hole has to be just the right size so the wrench can peal tiny pieces off to grab the broken part.. this is tricky to get the size just right.
5. Use a detist drill to cut a slot.
In all these use a penetrating oil or CRC226 to make it easier to turn.

The Fender pick up has two wires, blue and white. The Jackson has four: red, green ,black, and white.
1st. Determine the hot wire and the ground wire on the Jackson pick up and then just replace the Jackson pup with the Fender pup. White on the Fender is the hot lead and blue is for the ground. If you hook it up backwards it will be out of phase with the other pup's and will sound thin and weak when selected with either the rhythm pup or the lead pup. Of course, by itself it will sound normal because switching the wires only changes the phase of the Fender pup.
On the Jackson pup, the green and black are ground while the white and red are the hot side. Just solder the white lead of the Fender pup to the pup selector hot side and the blue lead to the ground.

The Fender Stratocaster (in common with all Fender guitars) has passive pick-ups so should be plugged into the no 1 socket.
Whilst it will work in the No 2 input socket this has lower sensitivity and is intended for use with guitars that have active (battery powered) pick-ups.
