The Elite Stratocaster was an effort to integrate active electronics into an upgraded Stratocaster design.  While sharing many elements with a traditional Stratocaster, the Elite used a different tremolo bridge, individual push pickup selectors and EQ-boosting TBX and MDX circuits. The Elite was only produced for two years, but the later Stratocaster Plus does share some features with it.

1983 - 1984
