And predictably, one was made. The year I'm mostly seeing is 1992--and they cost a bit more than your usual American Standard Strat from the same year. Here's one from Verbo-land:
So with the maple top (which itself is not all that unique in Stratland), glue in neck joint, and either an ash or mahogany (!) body, you had the option to go all the way into Gibson territory with your Fender Strat.
Anyone have any experience with this thing and can testify to the sound on it vs the the bolt on slab bodied traditional Strat?
(And naturally, if they did this with a strat, then surely they did the same thing with the Tele right? Yes..

I'm not sure what wood was used for the body/neck.
Now my memory isn't what it used to be but I recall it sounding nothing like any Fender I've played before. It had a thick and somewhat warm sound. Blame it on the tonewood, pickups, construction, etc., but it was certainly different. I liked it a lot and still think of buying one someday. It was one of those guitars that left a lasting impression on me.

Guitar theorem: G=X+1 where G= guitars one needs, and X = guitars one has.
Do or do not; there is no understand.
