    First, if I'm going to make a clickbait title like that, I have to justify myself very early on.

    The neck was made by current Master Builder Scott Buehl:

    The body was built by Oscar Pallares. He worked in the custom shop at the same time as John Page, who built the first two Strat Plus models in the custom shop (see the next post for evidence).

    So, take that claim with a grain of salt (hence the Johnny Cash song). I'm really just explaining why people say that Strat Plus models were the highest end Fender production models of their time. The early ones were made by custom employees such as John Page.


    See Johh Page's work log:

    I was planning on selling it if I didn't love it when I bought it. I didn't love it, but a guitar made by CS employees deserves a better setup at least before I seriously consider putting it on the auction block.
