This is a 1994 American Series Stratocaster Plus Ultra in a very vibrant "Crimson Burst", with a nice AAA+ Flamed Maple Top and AA+ Flamed maple neck. They were introduced in 1990 and Fender ended production in 1998, and when this color was selected the body was made of ash rather than the usual and much more common alder. Pictures do not do this finish justice, as it's hard to photograph the subtle grain patterns that show through the translucent surface. Some Nice Flaming .
As you already know, i have been through alot of Strats, but these models are fairly scarce and hard to come by. Very collectible at the moment.
The Floyd rose bridge still incorporates a "string-through" design but requires the ball-end to be cut. The factory upgraded the locking nut in 1992,as a result, these guitars have amazing sustain and a "solid" feel that even a blocked tremolo can't duplicate. A red Lace Sensor humbucker at the bridge teams with a silver in the middle and a blue Sensor at the neck.
This Strat plays and sounds great. The action is Low, the frets are in great shape and the neck is straight. The Lace Sensors pickups deliver a variety of tones. Like i previously Mentioned this is a very clean used guitar. The original owner had kept her under the bed for years whilst away in Japan on an extensive trip. It has seen virtually playtime and has been very well looked after. Please be aware that everything on the guitar is original. Comes in the original Fender plus Hardcase with the case candy.
This is an impressive package for anyone that can appreciate a Seriously good investment and all round killer Strat. A cool, rare color, awesome features and Custom Shop quality. very hard to find and very good value for money.
