Differences between Standard and Plus Telecasters –
Telecaster Pluses from 1989 to 1995 (Version One) have a short style bridge (somewhat similar to that of the Stratocaster), with the bridge pickup having a small metal pickup ring which is not part of the bridge mechanism. The control plate also differed from the standard Telecaster; due to an extra mini switch between the tone and volume knobs.
The Fender Telecaster Plus (Version One) came equipped with Lace Sensor pickups -"Dually Red-Red" in the bridge position and "Blue" in the neck position.
The three position toggle acts as a coil splitter for the bridge - toward the neck for the pickup closest to the neck, toward the bridge for the pickup closest to the bridge and in the middle for both.

The body is finished in a nice dark edge sunburst and topped off with a white 3 ply pickguard. It has a C shaped maple neck with 21 frets, 25.5” scale length, rear skunk stripe and closed back Fender tuners.
Cosmetics: There are some minor scuffs on the body, mostly on the back and all consistent with a played but well cared for guitar of its age. Frets are in good condition with lots of life left.
The neck is straight, the truss rod is operating as it should and all electronics are in good working condition. Action is currently medium low with lots of adjustment available either way.
This is a very versatile guitar, with a great variety of tonal options at your fingertips. The Fender Tele Plus is one of the rarest production USA guitars from the 1990's. The model is most closely associated with Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood, who owns five of them !
Comes in a GT branded gig bag.
