The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

Fender Stratocaster Plus Maple and Black, 1991

Brand:

Instrument Categories: , ,

The Fender Stratocaster Plus was one of the key developments following the 1985 sale of Fender by CBS to its management, which didn’t include the historic Fullerton plant.  Following the sale, Fender established a new plant in Corona, California, but during an eight month lag there was no US Fender production.   

The Stratocaster Plus appeared in 1987 and features Lace Sensor noiseless pickups, a Wilkinson roller nut,  two-post trem bridge, locking tuners by Sperzel and TBX tone control.  These features are found on many of Fender’s most modern designs, with the exception of the roller nut. The very first versions of the Strat Plus were built by master luthier John Page, who now has his own line of guitars.

This example of Stratocaster Plus production dates to 1991 and was built at the new Fender plant in Corona, California, with Maple neck and a Black finished body. It’s in good overall condition, with expected wear along the fingerboard edges and general play wear and small dings and dents. It would likely set up well, and the combination of locking tuners, roller nut and two-post bridge really reduce friction and contribute to tuning stability. The larger steel saddles add a noticeable degree of clarity, separation and sustain – and to my hand, they are far more comfortable when palm-muting than Vintage style saddles.

This guitar is sold with a gig bag.
