FENDER USA Version 1 Plus Tele "Crimson Burst + Maple " (1993).


Fender's Plus series is poised to become a future classic. A great combo of top of the line features and great American made quality. The Plus series was Fender's top of the line production guitars for much of the 80s and 90s, later to be replaced by the American Deluxe guitars. This gorgeous Telecaster Plus is a rare model made for only a few years before the new Plus series hit in the Mid- late 90s. The body is a one piece ash for good sound and looks. The 25.5 inch scale maple neck features a 9.5 inch radius Maple fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets. A trio of Lace Sensor pickups offer powerful tone with very little noise. The bridge is a Red Dually Lace Sensor while Blue topped Lace Sensor occupy's the neck position. A factory toggle lets you split the Dually pickup. A 6 saddle string through bridge and sealed tuners team up for rock solid performance. The finish is a gorgeous Crimson burst. Very hip look. A nice Tele!

Sound Wise, This Tele has plenty of character and expression to it - Acoustically it rings with a natural lively resonance, so know shortage of that classic Fender snap, dynamics and quick response. Fairly Heavy, weighing  8.5 pounds.


Fender's Tele Plus series always feels great to me. The big frets and flat radius neck offer easy playability. The Lace Sensor pickups are powerful, bright and have very little noise. They are very clear and are great with effects. Everything works as it should on this example. The neck is straight, action is low and the electronics work Flawlessly. This is a super nice guitar. Collector owned, it has seen Very little play time. Consequently the guitar is extremely clean with only a hint of play-wear. Comes in Original Fender Licensed Plus hard-shell case which is solid!. Original case candy included.


This is a Killer Rare guitar in a cool color. A fine instrument to add to any collection. Tele Pluses have steadily increased in price over the years with me buying them for more than what I used too.
