Jeff Beck was Fender’s inspiration for one of my favorite guitar models, the Strat Plus. Original models featured Lace Sensor pickups, roller nut and DuPont racing colors! Pictured here, courtesy of Jerry Maislish (left) and Ryan McGurk (right), are two Surf Green models. The ten year age difference shows the aging of the paint and the evolution of the model from a double coil switchable lace sensor in the lead position to all Fender Noiseless single coils. The necks are “Wide/Fats” and both play and sound like a dream.
