There are quite a few weird bits about the plus range. The first release is in 1990/91 there is a plus deluxe released in 1991 and tthen a version 2 released around 1995. Weirdly the 2nd version has the same model designation as the 1st even though it is a completely different guitar.
These guitars have an unusual pickup configuration a Blue Lace Sensor in the neck and 2 Red Lace sensors
in the bridge. The red Lace sensors are arranged Yamaha style like a Humbucker.
