I looked at some Gibsons, some other Fenders, and a couple of others in the store. This guitar just felt perfect, and i love the sound, the look, everything. Whether I would buy one exactly the same if this were stolen or whether I would buy a more recent model or another brand I don't know, but it is this guitar that I love and I wouldn't trade it for the world.
Model Year: 1993
Price: $2000.00 Australian
Where Obtained: Fretted Instruments
Features:
US made Fender Strat Plus, which has since been superceded by the "American Deluxe" model. Ash body with transparent metallic red burst (not blue pearl) maple neck with maple fingerboard, single-coil passive lace sensors - blue at the neck, silver in the middle and red at the bridge -, 1 volume and 2 tone controls, deluxe tremelo with pop-in arm, locking sperzel tuners, wilkinson roller nut, 22 medium jumbo frets.
Playability:
I have yet to get this baby set up properly, but it still plays like a dream. Action is nice and low, and the neck feels just right in my hands. Though this guitar is a second-hand '93 model, the frets have less wear on them than my '99 squier; I don't think it was played much! The bridge is a lot smoother than mexican made and older strats, which is nice because I do a lot of palm vibrato. Overall, it plays and feels great!
Sound Quality:
The lace sensors are very nice, though after more playing I may consider changing them to some Seymour Duncan Blue Velvets. I play jazz, rock, blues but no metal, and this guitar is very versatile. The sounds range from ultra warm with the neck pickup to a nice piercing treble, great for some old-style rock and roll leads. Sustain is great, and there is no noise at all through my Marshall amp which is another plus. The sound is very full and I love it to bits.
Durability:
It all seems very durable; it's not about to break anytime soon, and I can't find fault.
