Made in the USA between 1989 and 1996. One Lace Sensor Blue pickup in the neck position and two coupled Lace Sensor Red pickups in the bridge position. Poplar and ash body (like most Custom models), which are quite heavy woods. Varnished maple neck.

Mine was made in 1995 and has a rare Mystic Black finish that produces green reflections in bright environments. The guitar looks wonderful.

Above the classic Telecaster 3-way toggle switch, a mini switch provides several bridge pickup configurations (first single coil, second single coil or both together as a humbucker).

TBX tone control that adds a low-frequency filter.

I bought it with its original case with the red Fender logo.

UTILIZATION

Very playable U-profil neck. Perfect frets (unlike my Mexican Strat).

Access to the upper frets is like on every Telecaster.

The guitar is heavy and you'll notice it when you play two or three hours standing up! But you'll also feel that you have a high-quality instrument in your hands...

Is it easy to get the right sound? You'll get several good sounds: you can get a classic Telecaster Standard sound (with the bridge pickup), a Strat sound AND the sound of a Gibson guitar!!! It's the quintessential electric guitar regarding versatility.

SOUNDS

The sound is the main asset of this guitar: incredible sound versatility, high output level of the Lace Sensor red pickups... A killer sound! From the mellow sound of the neck pickup to the very aggressive sound of the humbucker, you get every possible sound to play blues, reggae, rock and even hard rock. If you're looking for the typical Telecaster sound with its famous twang, you'd better choose a 52 RI for example.

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using it for two years and I can't seem to get tired of it. I don't play my other guitars anymore (Mexican Strat and Fender Thinline)...

Its sound versatility is its main advantage. The only con is the balance: the headstock is a bit too heavy.

I wanted a Telecaster American Deluxe and I saw this secondhand Plus version at a web store after looking for a long time. I compared them and the American Deluxe seemed like a toy compared with this Plus version! What a sound...

I bought it secondhand (as new) in 2007 and I would buy it again. Twice, because I'm still looking for a second one...
