1991 FENDER ANTIQUE BURST STRATOCASTER ULTRA: Condition: NEAR MINT. Go to my FACEBOOK Page to see a lot of BIG pictures!) This is a very early first issue Fender Ultra that is very clean. Body is near perfect. Only the lettering on the neck and middle pickups is rubbed slightly. Totally stock. These early issue Ultras are becoming more collectible and harder to find. This one has a split-piece maple top and back that has some really nice flame. It has the Schaller locking tuners. Comes with all the Ultra appointments, such as all chrome parts and a dark EBONY fretboard with real Abalone inlays. Fender did not offer ebony on very many of their production guitars. Now dark black Ebony is very rare, as what you find on these guitars. These also have that cool Ultra switching using a 5-way super switch that mixed the neck + bridge on position #3 and the 3-way mini-switch that can give you a lot of variations on the bridge Dually. Read about this switching in details on my Ultra page! Also comes with plush Vintage Tweed G&G Deluxe Case. PRICE: $1850 + shipping (SOLD!!!!!!)

1993 FENDER VII CRIMSON BURST STRATOCASTOR PLUS DELUXE: Condition: NEAR MINT- . Go to my FACEBOOK Page to see a lot of BIG pictures including under the hood!Here is a nice example of a version II Plus DX. 1993 was the year of transition with this color. The VI’s had no metallic in the burst around the edges, but instead used a deep blood red color. The VII’s changed over to using a red metallic burst on the edges. The red in the center of the body is transparent so the wood grain shows through very subtly. The body appears to be Alder. The dark Rosewood fretboard stands out nice again the deep red color. Being a DX it has all the appointments, such as the Blue, Silver and Red Lace Sensor pickups and a pearled pickguard, which became more popular in the 1992-3 with Fender Strats. Frets are like new and the fretboard is really clean. The guitar is in excellent+ condition, contact me for the details. Comes with a BRAND NEW Gator TSA Flight case. PRICE: $1300 (SOLD!!!)

1995 FENDER LIPSTICK RED STRATOCASTER PLUS: Condition: NEAR MINT. Go to my FACEBOOK Page to see a lot of BIG pictures including under the hood!This is a lovely Strat Plus Lipstick Red. This cool deep red color is really a “candy color” — in other words it is three coat of finish to get this deep wet red color. Fender seals the body then paints it white. This it is shot with several transparent red color coats then followed by clear coats. Fairly hard to find color especially in this condition. Being a Standard Plus it has 3 Gold Lace Sensor pickups. The lettering on the pickups is near perfect. No chips, cracks, or even pickmarks on the pickguard. The build date according to the neck is Dec 1994 but sold as a 1995. Comes with a perfect Strat Plus Deluxe case with tremolo and strap locks. PRICE: $1450 (SOLD!!!!)

__________________________________________________________________

1991 FENDER BLUE FROST STRATOCASTER PLUS DELUXE: Condition: NEAR MINT. Go to my FACEBOOK Page to see a lot of BIG pictures including under the hood!This is one of those famous N9xxx serial numbered Strats. Some mistake it to mean 1999, which obviously it isn’t! Most of these were 1990-1991. This one has a neck stamp of Feb 1992. This color, Blue Frost, is fairly rare and was only offered 2.5 years and mostly only on the Strat Plus Deluxe. This guitar has some nice subtle flame on the back of the neck. Frets are excellent as is the Rosewood. I love the way the dark Rosewood looks against the body, which is Alder with nice Ash caps front and back where you can see the grain through the finish. This guitar is near mint. Has all the original case candy with Fender strap, strap locks, polishing cloth, etc. The only thing missing is the store’s hang-tag. Comes with the original Deluxe Fender flight case which is in excellent condition. PRICE: $1450 (SOLD!!)

1995 FENDER ANTIQUE BURST STRATOCASTER PLUS: Condition: NEAR MINT. Go to my FACEBOOK Page to see a lot of BIG pictures including under the hood! Here is a nice color from 1995 - Antique Burst. The guitar is in near mint condition. The lettering on the pickups is near perfect. I found two small indentations on the top that are barely visible. They look like they could be from the grain in the wood when the guitar was finished. Other than that the body looks like new. It appears to be made from Alder, and the grain shows through the finish very nicely. Frets are like new and the dark Rosewood board stands against the Antique finish very nicely. All the Strat plus features—locking tuners and an LSR roller nut!  Action is low and come with a hipshot tremsetter to stabilize tuning. If a string breaks while your playing the guitar still stays in tune! I found one small micro-nick on the back edge of the head-stock. Comes with a Deluxe Strat Plus case that looks like new, except it is missing one foot. It opens and shuts properly and all the buckel latches work as they should. PRICE: $1250 (SOLD!!!!!)

2016 FENDER STRATOCASTER ULTRA CUSTOM: Condition: BRAND NEW! Go to my FACEBOOK Page (click here to see a lot of big pictures of the guitar and under the hood). This is another one of my custom Stratocaster builds! What a tone machine! It has a New Old Stock 2016 Jeff Beck neck mounted on a highly flamed AAA+ Maple top on chambered mahogany Warmoth body. This guitar is a sweet player with a load of tone varations. I put a brand new DiMarzio DP-193 Air Norton Humbucker in the neck with a coil splitting switch. Flip the switch and 1/2 the windings are turned off. Go from a vintage Les Paul tone to a more Strat neck single coil tone. I loves these humbuckers! The tone is deep and warm, but not muddy. It’s hot, but not distorted. It’s even got cool harmonics, which are really unusual for a neck humbucker. Add some overdrive and it is warm and sweet! I used a 500k no-load pot with a .010 capacitor for the neck pickup. I have been experimenting with this .010 caps as they do not get near as dark as a .022 or .033 cap. One can actually use the tone crontrol more due to it not getting dark so quickly. If you are like me, my tone controls are at 10 most of the time, but this one is more subtle thus more usable. The bridge is a Chrome Dome Dually pickup. The other 3-way mini-switch has either the front or back pickups in the Dually to be on or off, or both in series which gives a fat hot humbucker tone. Go from Tele bridge bite to Stratty and even Gibson flavors - all using that little 3-way mini-switch. You can also mix the neck and bridge pickups with the middle Chrome Dome for some really nice quacky Strat voices. This has a 5-way Super Switch which gives you the neck + bridge in the middle (#3) position! I have a lot more info and pictures on my FaceBook page. Custom Shop quality at way less then Custom Shop prices! Comes with a NEW flight case, hang tag for the neck and Trem bar! PRICE: $2200 (SOLD)

1990 FENDER ANTIQUE BURST STRATOCASTER PLUS DELUXE: Condition: NEAR MINT+. Go to my FACEBOOK Page to see a lot of BIG pictures!) You do not need to have a Facebook account to look at these pictures. This is a lovely Strat Plus Deluxe guitar in Antique Burst. Body is mint. Neck is near perfect. This is an Alder body with really nice Ash caps front and back. The is has black Ebony fretboard with real Abalone inlays. The Ultra's were one of the only guitars that came with Ebony on the fretboard other then Custom shop and  maybe the Robbin Ford model. The serial number indicates (N9) 1990, but the neck date stamp on the butt end is March 26, 1992. No cracks, scratches, or dings. Just a few very light impressions on the back of the neck. Being a Deluxe Plus it has the Blue, Silver, Red Lace Sensor pickups. Much more fuller sounding than the bright, 50s tones of the Gold Lace Sensors. What a nice playing guitar. Note how nicely the Rosewood matches so nicely with the Antique finish! Comes with a nice original Fender Flight case, with like new origonal; Fender strap and DX pop-in tremolo bar. PRICE: $1350 (SOLD!!)

1993 ARCTIC WHITE FENDER STRATOCASTER PLUS: Condition: MINT- . Go to my FACEBOOK Page to see a lot of pictures including under the hood! 1993 was a year of change for the Strat Plus. Mid 1993 Fender moved over to the LSR Roller Nut from the Wilkinson Nut. This guitar was built in July of 93 and must have been close to the last ones with a Wilkinson Nut. Also in 1993 - late 1992, Lace added an extra green wire to ground their pickups. It was also a year for a lot of changes in the available color lineup. This guitar is near mint and comes with all the Strat Plus appointments, such as Gold Lace pickups (Note the lettering is not at all rubbed!) and Schaller locking tuners. The body is spotless with no cracks, pick scratches, or dings. The colors tend to make it look a tad more yellowish red than in real life. The neck too as really nice, the frets are like new, the back of the neck silky smooth, with no dents to speak of. The owner had a friend who owned a Plek machine, so he had it done to this guitar. Wow, plays really nice! Comes with a nice Fender Red Label form fitting hard-shell case. PRICE: $1400 (SOLD!!)

1987 BROWN SUNBURST STRATOCASTER PLUS WITH BOB BODY: Condition: MINT . Go to my FACEBOOK Page (click here to see a lot of big pictures of the guitar and under the hood). This is a MINT 1987 Strat Plus in Brown Sunburst. The neck date is 11/20/87. This is one of those very early Strat Plus’ with the square bottomed Lace Sensors with hand scribed numbers on each pickup. I remember Jeff Lace telling me when he was a teenager, he used to scribe those numbers on the pickups for his dad, Don Lace Sr., the inventor of the Lace pickups. The neck was made by legendary Herbie Gastelum, the 2nd oldest Fender employee going way back with Leo Fender. He made necks for many famous players. The body was made by Cuevas, who later worked in Fender’s Custom Shop. I thought the body was one piece Alder, but after careful examination, I saw it was matched together with a lot of care. Plays super sweet! And as mentioned, this is a Bob body with the smooth curves and fatter tummy cut. Very sexy bodies, IMHO! Read about these Bob Bodies HERE! The lettering on the pickups is near perfect. The body is mint. It has the split Wilkinson roller nut and the early black dot Sperzil locking tuners. Had the big fat resistor on the TXB tone control and the screw in bridge studs. Also note the steel bridge block, which is unpainted. Also comes with the original Fender rectangular case that is in excellent condition, some papwerwork, and trem bar. Rare find! PRICE: $2000 (SOLD)

1996 CANDY APPLE RED STRATOCASTER PLUS: Condition: MINT-. Go to my FACEBOOK Page to see a lot of pictures including under the hood! This is a mint- Candy Apple Red Stratocaster Plus. There are no cracks, scratches, etc on this guitar. I rated it MINT- due to one micro-ding on the lower edge. You would have a hard time finding it, and I am OCD! The guitar has all the original case candy, hang tag, etc. Gorgeous finish. The back of the neck has some very interesting grain in it. This is 50th Anniversary model with the small sticker on the back of the head stock. Guitar is like new and plays wonderful. The dark Rosewood fretboard set off the Candy Red body very nicely. Come with a like new Strat Plus Deluxe case. PRICE: $1475 (SOLD)

__________________________________________________________________

1993 FENDER MIDNIGHT WINE STRATOCASTER PLUS: Condition: MINT- . Go to my FACEBOOK Page (click here to see a lot of big pictures of the guitar and under the hood). Here is a cool color that often gets mistaken for Candy Apple Red called Midnight Wine! A deep maroon red with a hint of light purple. Candy Apple Red is brighter and lighter. The serial number says it is a 1993, but the date on the butt of the neck is April of 1994. This Strat Plus has all the typical Plus features: Shaller Locking tuners, LSR Roller nut, and Gold Lace Sensor pickups. The lettering on the pickups is near perfect. The guitar has not seen much playing, being Mint-. I found only two very small scratches on the back, butt-end edge of the guitar. (How else could one describe where these are??? LOL!!!) The frets are in great shape, with no peeling on the light maple fretboard. The back of the neck is very clean and silky smooth. Not much to say, just a really nice guitar! Comes with a era-correct rectangular case. I have seen quite a number of these Plus Strats come with these cases. I do not know if they were offered by Fender, or were a dealer option. But it does not say Fender on the case. PRICE: $1500 (SOLD)

1989 LAKE PLACID BLUE STRATOCASTER PLUS: Condition: MINT. Ggo to my FACEBOOK Page to see a lot of pictures including under the hood! Here is a fine example of the very hard to find Lake Placid Blue in a early 1989 Strat Plus. This guitar is mint. It was bought from the original owner who picked it up early in 1989 and only played it a few times. He was a professional musician and he told me this was “his baby.” Even the lettering is perfect on the pickups and it has all the case candy, tremolo bar, original unused strap and unopened polish cloth! The frets are like new. No dings, scratches, or cracks. Hard color to photograph, especially on a cloudy dark day! This has the plain steel block on the tremolo and the square bottomed Lace sensor pickups. I did not pull the neck so not sure of the exact date but it has to be early 89 with these features. Comes with the original retangular Fender case. PRICE: $1700 (SOLD)

1997 TUXEDO VII TELECASTER PLUS DELUXE: Condition: MINT. Go to my FACEBOOK Page (click here to see a lot of big pictures of the guitar). Here is another closet classic! A 1997 Version II Tuxedo Telecaster Plus Deluxe in mint condition. There are not a lot of the VIIs floating around. A guy bought this and then told me he was intimidated by it, so he played it like 3 or 4 times in his bedroom. Basically brand new.

1991 NATURAL ASH FENDER STRAT PLUS DX ULTRA CUSTOM: Condition: MINT-. Go to my FACEBOOK Page (click here to see the guitar) to see a lot of big pictures and the wiring!) This guitar started out as a 1991 Stratocaster Plus Deluxe. When I received it, it was in nearly unplayed condition. It has the odd and rare serial number starting with N99XXXX indicating it is a 1999, but truth is, Fender used these on their 1990-1991 guitars. (I explain this on my website).This one has a stamp on the butt of the neck stating it was made April 02, 1991. This one has a tad chunkier neck which sports some nice flame on the back. Frets are like new. I played this for an hour through a Fender Blue Deluxe III, and what am amazing guitar! Can go from Metal to Country - Jazz to Fusion - Floyd to Santana. Super sustain and clairty. What a tone monster! Why pack a lot of guitars to a gig? This will be a Strat, Tele or a Les Paul. Lots of cool out-of-phase (chirping and quacking) tones on positions #2 & # 4. Also comes with the era correct rectangular case that is in good condition. PRICE: $1700 (SOLD)

The Version I came with Silver/Silver/Blue Lace Sensor pickups. In 1990 Fender then changed the Deluxe to the Blue/Silver/Red Lace Sensor pickups. VERY RARE GUITAR espepcially in this condition!!!!! These are quite collectable especially when you find them in a rare color like Torino Red, which was only offered in the Plus lineup from 1987 to early 1990. A very bright red! Was one of Eric Clapton’s favorite colors as well! The Maple fretboard is excellent as are the frets. Plays super sweet! Also comes with the original Fender rectangular case that is in excellent condition and trem bar. PRICE: $1650 (SOLD!!!!)

__________________________________________________________________

1998 TORINO RED ERIC CLAPTON SIGNATURE STRATOCASTER: Condition: MINT - NOS. Go to my FACEBOOK Page (click here to see a lot of big pictures of the guitar). This is about as nice as it gets! A New Old Stock quality Clapton Strat that is 19 years old. Try finding a mint Version II EC Strat with Gold Lace pickups in this condition—super hard! Here is the story. This guitar was bought brand new and never played as the owner never learned. The guitar was purchased then taken out of the case a few times, looked at, and then put away. The guy never even learned a G chord! The plastic is still on the pickguard and trem cover. Comes complete with the Clapton Kit, paperwork, hang-tag, manuals, stickers and polishing cloth. It has all the cool features of the VII EC (read about this on my signature guitar page), with Gold Lace Sensors, 25dB Boost, V shaped neck and Vintage tuners.

__________________________________________________________________

1996 SONIC BLUE FENDER STRATOCASTER PLUS: MINT- . Go to my FACEBOOK Page (click here to see a lot of big pictures of the guitar and under the hood). Here is a very hard to find and in my humble opinion, a very cool color—Sonic Blue! This color was available from early 1996 into the spring of 1997. This one has a neck date of July 2nd 1996 and the body date is a bit smudge but looks like Oct of 1996. These guitar is near mint and comes with all the Strat Plus appointments. The neck is spotless and the body is wonderful, with the exception of two small dimple ding on the top. One is visible and the other is so small it is very hard to locate. The neck on this was made the Fender legend, Herbie Gastelum, who is the 2nd oldest employee at Fender next to Abigail Ybarra, who who worked directly with Leo Fender. This was a surprise to me because I am sure he was in Fender’s Custom Shop in the early 1990s. So why this neck was made by him? It is a mystery to me, but he shaped necks for a lot of famous players. Even the writing on the Gold Lace Sensor pickup looks like new and the pickguard shows no scratches. Close to unplayed condition. Comes with the deluxe Strat Plus Case with the big chrome bucket latches. PRICE: $1550 (SOLD!!!!)

__________________________________________________________________

1993 LIPSTICK RED STRATOCASTER PLUS: Condition: EXCELLENT+ . This is a pretty hard to find color, made available from early 1993 into the middle of 1996. The color is created by the guitar being first shot in a white paint then several dark transparent coats of red follow by clear coats. (i.e. it is a “candy color” much like Candy Apple Red but with no metal flake in the base coat.) The body is near prefect. No cracks in the neck sockets and the lettering on the pickups is not rubbed off and the frets are excellent. The pickups and pickguard have slightly aged to a nice light creamy white color. Looks nice with the red! The Rosewood is dark with nice grain. I did find a few light fingernail marks. Again, this comes with all the Strat Plus appointment. It has the LSR roller nut, schaller locking tuners, etc. The only flaws are a couple very small dings around the head-stock, a slight anomaly with the skunk stripe and a few spots on the back of the neck and a rub mark on the neck near the head-stock from what appears to be from a guitar hanger. Super nice guitar that plays great. Comes with a era correct black Fender Tolex case (much like a 1970s style) that’s a few small nicks. PRICE: $1250 (SOLD!!!!!)

__________________________________________________________________

1994 40TH ANNIVERSARY FENDER ANTIQUE BURST STRATOCASTER ULTRA: Condition: EXCELLENT+. This is a hard to find 1994 Fender 40th Anniversary Model Ultra in Antique Burst. Has the neck plate that says 1994 - Fender Stratocaster 40 Years… and still rockin’ and has the red, white and blue anniversary emblem on the headstock. Body sports some really nice split match-book flame. I rated this one Excellent+ due to some very small bumps and a few micro nicks. You know I am OCD! The guitar is gorgeous. Comes with all the Ultra appointments, such as all chrome parts, LSR Roller nut, rarer Floyd Rose locking bridge, and a dark ebony fretboard with real Abalone inlays. These also have that cool Ultra switching using a 5-way super switch that mixed the neck + bridge on position #3 and the 3-way mini-switch that can give you a lot of variations on the bridge Dually. Read about this switching in details on my Ultra page! Comes with the original Fender rectangular DX flight case that is in very good condition. PRICE: $1850 (SOLD!!!)

_________________________________________________________________

1993 FENDER VINTAGE BLONDE STRATOCASTER ULTRA CUSTOM: Condition: MINT- This is a near mint 1993 Vintage Blonde, or what the old timers used to call transparent Butterscotch. Gorgeous guitar that plays really SWEET! I really love the Ash grain that shows through the finish. This build has Chrome Domes Lace Sensors in the neck and middle, with a Chrome Dome Lace Dually in the bridge. This Dually when ran is series operates at 19k. When split the lower one is 6k and then upper one is 13k. So with the mini-switch you can get Tele, humbucker, and vintage Strat tones. Using the 5-way super switch in position 3 you have neck + bridge configuration, like a Tele or other 2 pickup guitars. The first tone control that is connected to the neck pickup is a no-load, 250k pot with a .22 Monotone Vitamin T Cap. Turn it to 10 and you by-pass the tone control completely. For the middle and bridge pickups I used a standard TBX tone control. Please note the rarer Floyd Rose bridge system. Cut off the end of the string, insert it and tighten the Allen screw. Also comes BRAND NEW Fender 1970s Reissue Tolex Hard Shell case. PRICE: $1650 (SOLD)

__________________________________________________________________

1991 FENDER NATURAL ASH STRATOCASTER PLUS DELUXE: Condition: NEAR MINT.This is a super minty 1991 Strat Plus DX (version II) which has the Blue, Silver, Red Lace Sensor pickups made from solid ASH with a maple neck. This guitar plays exceptionally well - mojo you might say. This has the DX tremolo system with the pop-in trem bar. Frets are like new. And, of course, all the other cool Strat Plus features: Schaller locking tuners, and a Wilkinson roller nut. In the Fender always charged extra for a Natural finished Strats. Comes with a Fender Red Label form fitting hard-shell case which is also excellent with some of the case candy! PRICE: $1375 (SOLD)

__________________________________________________________________

1989 ARCTIC WHITE FENDER STRAT PLUS: Condition: EXCELLENT+. This is a very nice example of 1989 Strat Plus in Arctic White. The finish has aged a slight bit. This color is a bit harder to find and is sometimes mistaken as Vintage White when the clear coat turns slightly yellow. Vintage White is considerably creamier colored than this. I have always loved this color as it reminds me a bit of Jimi and Woodstock! This has all the standard Plus appointments: Gold Lace pickups, Wilkinson roller nut, sand Schaller locking tuners. Also has the an original case that is in excellent condition. The Rosewood fretboard is dark and in great condition and stands out against the white body very nicely. Frets are in great shape. No dings on the back of the neck to speak of. The only thing I could find is two very small bumps on the back upper edge that would be under your arm when you play. Comes with an original hardshell case in very good condition. PRICE: $1300 (SOLD)

________________________________________________________________

1995 MYSTIC BLACK FENDER STRAT PLUS DELUXE: Condition: NEAR MINT- . This Strat Plus DX is in the rare Mystic Black color. When you place it under bright light, you see a blue/green pearl flake in the clear coat—very mystic for sure! I have a close up of the flake below from one of my other Mystic Black Plus' I shot outside in the sunlight. This has the very hard to find Floyd Rose bridge system. Cut off the end of the string, insert it and tighten the Allen screw. Since it is a DX it comes with Blue, Silver and Red Lace sensor pickups. I love the tone of these. Fatter tones in the neck position and more bite in the bridge which great for Blues, Funk, and Jazz, but still retains all the great Strat tones in-between we love. Frets are like new. A very, very clean guitar. I have discounted the price some as the only real thing to mention is some discoloration on the very tip of the head-stock (picts on FaceBook). I always sell near mint Mystic Black for around $1600. Comes with the like new Fender Red Label case. PRICE: $1475 (SOLD!!)

1989 FENDER (VERSION I) CRIMSON BURST STRATOCASTER PLUS DELUXE: Condition: NEAR MINT. Here is another hard to come by Strat Plus DX! This is the Version II DX with the Blue, Silver and Red Lace Sensor pickups. This color was introduced in 1989 on the new Deluxe Plus’ and was discontinued in early 1993. Then Fender came out with a new type of Crimson Burst with a crimson metallic around the edges. This one, you will not is a solid color burst with no metallic .Please note that the top and back are Ash which shows the beautiful grain through the transparent crimson color. These are quite collectable especially and are hard to find. This also has some wild flame on the back and front of the neck. The fretboard actually changes color around the 4th through 6th frets from the flame. and same on the back of the neck. Very cool.

1991 GUNMETAL BLUE FENDER STRATOCASTER PLUS: Condition: NEAR MINT. This is a super clean 1991 Strat Plus in Gunmetal Blue—I love Gunmetal Blue! People often mistakenly call this Gunmetal Green or Sage, as it looks greenish. But in fact Fender did called it Gunmetal Blue! (Color code #68). Sometimes the clear coat can yellow making it looks even more greenish The body is spotless and the neck is very nice. Even the lettering on the Gold Lace Sensors is near prefect. Has the full Wilkinson Nut and all the other Strat Plus appointments. This is getting to be a hard to find color. Frets are excellent, and the guitar show very little use for its age. Even the pickguard is super clean. Comes with the original Fender hard shell rectangular case with original Fender Strap, strap locks, some case candy and them arm! PRICE: $1375 (SOLD

________________________________________________________________

1991 VINTAGE WHITE FENDER STRATOCASTER PLUS: Condition: NEAR MINT. This is an early Strat Plus with Gold Lace Sensor pickups and all the other Strat Plus appointments. This is a nice example of one of my favorite colors - Vintage White, which has aged to a nice creamy color! This has a really dark Rosewood fretboard, which sets off nice against the body. The pickguard has also aged to a nice creamy white with a very light hue of pink. Very subtle and cool looking. Frets are like new. Lettering on the pickups only show a slight amount of rubbing.

__________________________________________________________________

1987-88 FENDER SURF GREEN STRATOCASTER PLUS: Condition: MINT-. Thi is an excellent example of a very early Strat Plus with Gold Lace Sensor pickups and all the other Strat Plus appointments and the early "split Wilkinson nut." This guitar has neck date of Feb 4th, 1988 which is written in pencil by Herbie Gastelum, which was a common practice on some of the first Strat Plus guitars. What is cool is Herbie even signed his name in pencil. Herbie Gastelum was probably one of Fenderís most historical neck shapers. He joined Fender in 1961 and is considered one of the Fender ďveteransĒ next to Abigail Ybarra who entered the musical instrument industry in the summer of 1956. He later moved over to Fenderís Custom Shop and mostly likely was the guy who shaped necks for people like Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, and others. Speaking of necks, this one is a bit of an anomaly. It is much fatter and thicker than any other Strat Plus I have owned. It is like 1/2 way to being like a Jeff beck Bass Ball Bat neck. Frets are like new. Lettering on the pickups is nice. Super Clean. The pickups are the older type with the old pat. pending stickers and square bottoms. The dark Rosewood fretboard stands out nice against the Surf Green finish.

1988 BAHAMA GREEN STRATOCASTER PLUS: Condition: EXCELLENT +. Here is one of the rarer Strat Plus colors to come by. In fact, for years I thought these were just an urban myth and even started a thread on the Fender Forum entitled: Urban Legends or a fact about Bahama Green back in 2007. These are as rare as Dusty Rose, Razz Berry, Fiesta Red, Shell Pink and a few others. These colors were made available only on the very first Strat Plus' and ended early 1989. After a lot of searching, I now have have a couple of these in my collection, so I am passing this one on. This has an E4 serial number but neck date is 1988. It has the early Sperzel tuners with the black dots on the locking nuts. All the cool Strat Plus appointments. Super clean with only a few small bumps, thus the Excellent+ rating. No rash, scratches, etc. as the picts show. Comes with the original hard shell case and tremolo bar. PRICE: $1700 (SOLD)

1993 FENDER BLACK STRATOCASTER ULTRA CUSTOM: Condition: MINT- . This is another one of my Ultra Custom builds. It started out as mint- 1993 Black Plus Deluxe, modified with a new Ultra Black/Red/Black pickguard (with matching Trem cover), using all new electronic components. All you see is reflections on this high-gloss body. The Rosewood on the neck's fretboard is perfect, no dings on the back of the neck, and the frets are like new. This has a Purple Lace Sensor in the neck which is one of my favorites. Not as fat as a Blue used on the Ultras, but not as thin as a Gold. A perfect neck pickup. I used a Silver Lace Sensor in the middle, with a Red Lace Dually in the bridge, like found on Fender's Ultra models. With the 3-way mini-switch you can get Tele, humbucker, and vintage Strat tones from the bridge. Using the 5-way super switch in position 3 you have neck + bridge configuration, like a Tele or other 2 pickup guitars. These are the most verital Strats out there. The first tone control that is connected to the neck pickup is a no-load, 250k pot. Turn it to 10 and you by-pass the tone control completely. For the middle and bridge pickups I used a standard TBX tone control. Comes a very nice Fender Deluxe 70's style Tolox hard-shell case. PRICE: $1650 (SOLD)

1989 FENDER TAOS TURQUOISE STRATOCASTER PLUS: Condition: EXCELLENT +. Very rare color that was never listed as avaialable in a Strat Plus. A small number of these were produced from late 1987 through 1989. The Maple fretboard is very nice as are the frets. Comes with all the standard Strat Plus appointments. The lettering on the pickups is in excellent condition. This guitar would have sold for $2000 - $2200 if in mint or near mint condition. This one has a number of small bumps in the finish so the reason for thre Excellent + rating. Also comes with the original Fender rectangular case that is in excellent condition. PRICE: $1750 (SOLD)

__________________________________________________________________

1988 FENDER FIESTA REDSTRATOCASTER PLUS: Condition: EXCELLENT + . Another very rare color that is one of my favorites.  The pictures do not do justice for this color - as it is a kind of reddish - orangish - pinkish color! A small number of these were produced from late 1987 through early 1989. The Maple fretboard is excellent as are the frets and has the Split Wilkinson Roller nut! . Comes with all the standard Strat Plus appointments. The lettering on the pickups is in excellent condition. This guitar would have sold for $2000 - $2200 if in mint or near mint condition. This one has a couple of small bumps in the finish so the reason for thre Excellent + rating. Also comes with the original Fender rectangular case that is in excellent condition. PRICE: $1875 (SOLD)

1990 FENDER TIGER STRIPED STRATOCASTER PLUS DELUXE: This is a early issue Version II Strat Plus Deluxe with an ASH body. Some of the early DX’s came with solid Ash bodies instead of the Ash veneer on Alder, but this one has a SOLID ASH body! I have only seen 2 Plus guitars with this wild Ash grain stained in this way. Very hard to find. This comes with the E9 serial number indicating it is an 1989 but this is a 1990 according to the neck pocket date. Rosewood fret board is dark, which sets of the grain on the body nicely, and is perfect. The frets are like new! And how does it play? SWEET! :-) Totally stock. Comes with all the DX appointments, such as pop in chrome tremolo bar and the Blue, Silver, Red Lace Sensor pickups. Also comes with the original Fender rectangular case that is in excellent condition. PRICE: $1350 (SOLD)

Cut off the end of the string - insert it in the bridge, and tighten down the allen screw. LSR roller nut gives you smooth dives that stay in tune. Being a DX model, it has the Blue, Silver, and Red Lace Sensor pickups. Beefy, Blues tones, yet Tele bite to crunch in the bridge and all those nice Strat sounds inbetween! The one-piece solid Maple fretboard is near perfect, no dings on the back of the neck, and the frets are like new. I marked this MINT- because it has two micro chips right on the tip of the headstock. Even the lettering on the pickups is good. Also comes a very nice Fender Deluxe Strat Plus Hard Shell case. PRICE: $1450 (SOLD)

1993 - 2016 FENDER ULTRA CUSTOM STRATOCASTER PLUS: Condition: Brand New. Sold before even listed. Another one of my (Xhefriís) custom builds. You can read about my custom builds HERE.This is a Warmoth Mahogany chamber body mated to a new old stock 1993 Ebony Fender Ultra Neck. It has a a highly flamed maple top with masking around the edges. Crazy - cool mahogany back! The body has a custom contoured heel to make getting up around the 12 registry easier. The neck pickup is a Seymour Duncan Jazz Humbucker HS-2. These are incredible pickups and a great match for the Dually and single coils. One of my favorites. Great harmonics and can be smooth as silk. Add some overdrive and you have some nice blue tone. The first tone control is a push/pull pot to split the Jazz pickup into a single coil. This way you have the fat humbucker sound, or a slightly thinner tone similar to a single coil neck pickup. The bottom tone control is Fenderís TBX system that cuts high and low frequencies giving the bridge and middle pickups more tonal range. The 3-way mini-switch runs the bridge Dually in series (fat sound) or either front of back Chrome Dome. Back is more biting like a Tele bridge pickup and front is more mellow with a stratty tone. The 5-way switch is a Fender Super Switch which in position #3 has the neck + bridge instead of just running the middle pickup. This is more like a Telecaster or any 2 pickup guitar. You can mix tones from the neck and bridge pickups. Comes with a brand new Fender flight case. PRICE: $2550 (SOLD)

1995 FENDER ELECTRIC BLUE STRATOCASTER PLUS: Condition: NEAR MINT. Here is another hard to come by Strat Plus in ELECTRIC BLUE! This comes with all the typical Strat Plus appointments, such as Gold Lace Sensors, Shaller Locking tuners, and a LSR Roller nut. The lettering on the pickups is prefect. This color was introduced in late 1995 and was gone the middle of 1996 so they are pretty hard to find. It is like a darker yet very bright Lake Placid Blue—well, it's very electrifying! In reality it is a bright candy blue having a fine silver undercoat with a sparkly transparent blue coat. These are quite collectable. The condition of this guitar is really amazing and it plays great. Plastic is still on the back them cover. Lot’s of mojo. Maple neck is in great condition as are the frets.

These are quite collectable especially when you find them in a rare color like Surf Green.

The Gold Lace Sensor logos on the pickups are near new condition and the body is mint. Also comes with the original Fender rectangular heavy duty flight case that is in excellent condition.

1997 INCA SILVER FENDER STRATOCASTER PLUS ULTRA CUSTOM: Condition: MINT-. This is a very nice, minty, Inca Silver Strat Plus that that I customized using all BRAND NEW pickups and parts (small fortune!) on one of my custom cut Humbucker/Ultra Aged Pear pickguards. The only reason it is not mint is due to some light impressions on the back of the neck. This configuration is very popular as I have sold a number wired like this. The neck pickup is (dare I say?) a Gibson Burstbucker (type 1) taken out of a brand new Les Paul. The Gibson Burstbuckers have garnered quite a bit of attention as being a "truer" PAF type pickup compared to what Gibson had been offering over the past several years. This pickup is sweet and does not overpower the Chrome Domes. It is wired with a 500k no-load pot with a .033 oil cap, which means when you use the tone control the pickup does not get super dark and muddy sounding. Also turn it to 10 and you by-pass the tone control complete (thus no-load)! The bridge is an Ultra-styled Dually in Lace Sensor Hot Chrome Domes. With the mini-3 way switch get tele to humbucker bridge tones. The middle pickup is a a standard Chrome Dome and when mixed with the bridge or neck (positions #2 & #4) you get this entice quacks, even with the Burstbucker. Frets are like new.

1993 FENDER CRIMSON BURST ON ASH STRATOCASTER PLUS DELUXE: Condition: NEAR MINT+. This is a VERSION 1 Crimson Burst.

The 5-way Super Switch gives both tradition Tele tones plus more. The little mini-switch splits the coils on the bridge pickup to have a more vintage tone when using the bridge pickup. Here is how the switching works: In position #1 you have the bridge pickup acting as a humbucker or single coil using the mini-switch. Position #2 is the bridge + neck with only 1/2 of the neck coils. Position #3 has the humbucker as a full humbucker and the Duncan Bridge pickup together. Position #4 has the Humbucker split, as a single coil, sound more like a traditions Tele. Position #5 is the full himbucker sounding like Les Paul. I used a .33 capacitor and a 500k no-load tone control. The guitar came together amazing well and plays incredible. Comes with a Brand New Deluxe Fender Tweed hard shell case with, allen wrench, polishing cloth, & keys. PRICE: $2600 (SOLD)

2009 CUSTOM STRATOCASTER DELUXE ULTRA: Condition: MINT. This started off with a Warmoth chambered mahogany body with a curly flamed maple top. I wired Red Delicious up with 2 - 500k no-load pots. This means when they are on 10 the circuit is totally bypassed. On the lower pot that controls the bridge and middle pickups I used a Vitamin-Q .033 capacitor for a new flair. The neck is a Dimarizo Air Classic Neck humbucker (DP190N) which is similar too a 1950s humbuckers, but uses full-strength Alnico 5 magnets. I have it wired with the coil-splitting switch with cuts the output by 1/2 so it also has a more single coil sound. Then in the middle a Chrome Dome standard pickup with is like a hot Gold Lace Sensor. The bridge is a set of hot Chrome Domes with the high output of a Red Lace Sensor in the Dually configuration, using the mini-switch. The combo? You can get whatever tone you are looking for!.

Up) splits off the back pickup, so since the distance is farther away from the bridge, it creates a cool Strat hollow sound, which then can be mixed with the middle pickups with the 5-way switch. Middle) has the bridge pickups in parallel creating a hot humbucker sound. Down) splits off front pickup on the bridge to give a Strat single coil bridge sound.
