Beautiful All-American Fender Stratocaster Plus in Midnight Wine metallic finish with maple neck. Shows some play and handling wear, but in great shape for a 26 year old guitar. All the Original upgraded features of the Plus model are still here, including locking tuners, roller nut, Hipshot™ Tremsetter, TBX mid-boost tone control (same as the Eric Clapton signature model) and Fender noiseless pickups. Comes with Original Fender hard shell case, also in excellent condition. Freshly setup with D'addaro EXL 110's and original frets were just leveled and crowned. I know it sounds cliche, but this guitar plays like butter and sounds awesome. Great guitar that has, and will continue to, satisfy the discriminating guitarist and increase in value. $1195

If I had the $$$ I would buy that from you right now. I doubt you will be owning that guitar for very long. To ask for 1400 or more you would need the original Fender Lace Sensor pickups on it. Folks are kind of goofy about that. Personally I swap those out for better pickups but folks love those old Fender Lace Sensors, you will see the old style ones with the fading lettering going for 150 plus and barely any lead wire! Re-leading the lace sensor is a major pain in the ass. I prefer the silvers to the golds but that's me. Great looking guitar I wish I could buy it.

Midnight Wine was from 1989-1994
Candy Apple Red was 1987-1988 & 1996-1998
I think your guitar is CAR, this is Midnight Wine.
While still a "Candy" color it is darker than CAR.

Oh man, I just bought a Strat. Different model, but almost the same money. I gotta stop teasing my GAS with these forums.
