I purchased my Fender Strat plus deluxe @ a Sam Ash outlet in 1993. After becoming comfortable with the unique sound of the Lace PUs it became my favorite axe. The action was perfect right out of the case & setting for intonation later was never a problem. I've given the frets their share of abuse over the years & have yet to replace one.The clear harmonic tones produced with a set of new strings never fails to amaze me. The instrument is heavy which is noticeable during long gigs but it still gets compliments while on the road. Parts are readily available & mostly can be found on line. If you ever come across one of these beauties, plug it in, play & get ready to fall in love.
