One important thing I think I need to add...Private Reserve treated me with care and Professionalism thruout the process of the new guitar selection...Pat was my representitive and he's totally knowledgeable and knows how to help a person trying to find a guitar! It can be confusing and Pat just makes it seem easy! Thank you Pat! Job Well Done! John B.

Comments about Fender Custom Shop 2012 Custom Deluxe Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

The Guitar is in route...UPS
As soon as it gets here I will put it thru the paces and inform everyone.
Fenders are great guitars. Sometimes they suffer from quality issues...
I'm hoping this is not the case with this Guitar XN9026
The air is so thick I can cut it with a knife! The anticipation is Great!
I've got serious GAS for this Guitar!
Private reserve sent me photos and it's a beauty...
***Check back in about a week and you'll get the real story behind this Stratocaster!

    Comments about Fender Custom Shop 2012 Custom Deluxe Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    I've had this guitar for about a month now. I've waited to post a review, untill I had played it a lot, and became really familiar with its' sound, playability, and features. I can now state unequivically that this is the finest guitar I've ever played.Yes, fender Custom shop guitars are quite expensive, but considering the build quality, fit and finish, and incredible tone, I think they represent good value.
    Firstly, this guitar arrived in absolutely perfect condition,[thanks Musicians Friend] including spot on intonation. The action was a little low for my tastes, but a few turns of the included Allen Wrench took care of that. Secondly, it played like a champ. Gorgeous maple neck and fretboard with a beatiful feel and frets that were just right. Finally, it produced the Strat sound of my dreams. The Abby Ybarra pickups are a revelation. They bite, without being at all harsh, and the 2 and 4 positions quack like a duck. Also, it has incredible sustain. Each note sings untill you cut it off.
    As an added bonus, it looks great too. A quilt maple top gives it a special appearance [also adds to the sustain], and the pearl tuners are gravy. Add to this a Jeff Beck synchronized tremelo And bridge [Fenders best, IMHO] and you wind up with very close to the perfect guitar.

      Comments about Fender Custom Shop 2012 Custom Deluxe Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

      I have owned a 60's Mustang, a 60's Tele, and two 70's Strats.
      They all had value as collectibles, but they weren't built this well, nor did they play as well as this.
