The Strat Plus, from it's inception, was heralded with basic features from the get-go and a Wilkerson roller nut and Locking tuners were part of their features. ) than 400 were made as I have owned several and I have questions coming in every few weeks about these by email. They are "some-what" collectible and are sometimes sold, mistakenly, as a Strat Plus!
Some of the parts, such as the body and the unfinished neck came off the "line" which means they came out of the same stock the production model American Standard Strats came from.I have received help from a couple Fender employees that worked there for many, many years - one for 34 years in fact.Couple of these workers are no longer working there.They will often have the E4, E8 or E9 serial numbers too.What these really are is just an American Standard Strat fitted with with Gold Lace pickups! I have been in touch with some people at Fender for years getting information for building this website.
While some were sold as a "Plus" they were sort of a hybrid have Fender's new Noiseless pickups, yet retaining the locking tuners, roller nut and American bridge.
