That's a Mary Kaye, a really nice Ash strat reissue. That shade of transparent blonde on Ash was only available on the Mary Kayes. These are a favorite of mine, BTW. Through some Fralins in her, and it will certainly rule :D

Judging from your pic of the route, this was probably a milk-white see-through blonde that has tinged over time. I recall Fender having problems with the inside of the cases bleeding into the lighter finishes for a period of time.
I like the color- makes it special.....

I'd say Mary Kaye/Blonde also, after an exhaustive search I can not find the reason for the pink hue. It did NOT bleed from the case fabric, as mine has, because the colour is consistent underneath the guard. However, if it happens to have a "Special Edition" inscription on the back of the headstock, it IS true ... there are colours and models that didn't exist. Fender made guitars in runs of 150 or so, at different times, that are not documented publicly - only identifiable by company reps. Thanks for the pics.
