1991 Fender USA Stratocaster Plus Electric Guitar


Tone: It's clean but full, thicker in the mids than a normal Strat, has even balance, and low noise.


Feel: It's a typical modern Fender feel -- a medium-ish C-shaped neck with a quick feel and wider (compared to vintage) nut width. This is the same cut as found on most '90s and '00s USA and Mexico standard-series products.


Interesting features: It has a neat downpressure nut, locking tuners, two-point modern trem with hardened saddles, and a retro-futuristic vibe with the modern fittings over a classic sunburst/maple neck Strat look.


Repairs included: It's had a fret level/dress, cleaning, and setup -- work done by new recruit Gurion and also myself.

Condition notes: It has a few nicks in the finish here and there (tiny) and mild wear throughout, but overall it's pretty clean. It's missing its trem arm (though I've set its trem up for easy use) and one of the three springs on the back is an odd-looking thing in a plastic sleeve. It appears to be otherwise original save for the strap buttons which are replacements.


It comes with: It's got an original hard case.

I believe the weird nut is a Wilkinson Roller Nut. As was famously used by Jeff Beck!

(It's a stock item on that era of Strat Plus along with the Wilkinson trem)
