    Big Difference

    Comments about Fender Custom Shop Custom Deluxe Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    If you are thinking this guitar isn't much of a change from a standard american strat than you are far off. The quality of the wood on this custom deluxe is amazing, tonal wise and just looks. The pickups are well laid and a nice combo, especially coming from a american strat. You go from crystal clear to gritty rock with this twanger. The neck is a bit fatter and will need a few tries to get use to it. The clarity of the notes is amazing. You can always hear the guitar during whatever you do to it. I was originally going to buy JM strat but I have an american and I could just swap out the originals for the big dippers. It is pricey but you pay for what you get. If you can find a used model I would recommend getting that. Go try it out and make the dramatic step up from american standard strats.

    THE guitar

    By Anonymous

    Comments about Fender Custom Shop Custom Deluxe Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    I got this guitar today (Christmas) as a step up from my 65' mustang reissue. A big step up. I was looking for a much smoother tone and less of an "icepick" sound. I was using the stock Fender Hot Rod Deluxe overdrive channel which is very thin sounding, though today and I also got a Fulltone Full Drive 2 Mosfet (best O.D pedal I've ever played through without a doubt). The second I got his guitar the finish was just AMAZING. I got an extremely limited transparent cobalt blue finish with a very figured ash body from a private seller and it was the best looking guitar I ever saw. I then played it unplugged and the whole body just shook with resonance. The neck is the perfect size for me. I like larger necks like on the 62' hot rod Strat but this one is just perfect and the Birdseye and 6150 frets are amazing. I then plugged it in clean and the 69'/Texas special combo sounded incredible. I try to get a sound like Hendrix/SRV with my own twist and this does it PERFECTLY. The neck and middle pickups are clean and clear and have a very balanced sound and the bridge pickup is hot and trebley but the neck pickup is my favorite. The two pint tremolo with pop in arm stays in tune much better than a vintage six point especially in combination with Schaller locking tuners and Ernie Ball regular slinkies.. The Schaller strap locks are very easy to put on and work a lot better than Dunlop's. I gave a 4.5 on features just to point out that this is just a Strat. Nothing special about it. There is no TBX, mid boost, Noiseless pickups, peizo bridge or S-1 switching and because of that, this is an amazing, simple tone machine. By the way buy a new strap, the one that comes with it is the worst thing I've ever seen. Also the cord is very good.

    Why buy anything else!

    Comments about Fender Custom Shop Custom Deluxe Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    Spent 2 yrs. lookin at Strats & strat style guitars. Always came back to Fender Strats for the sound and quality. Found my FCS Custom Deluxe with ash body and Surf Pearl nitro. Stunning!! Same set up as the specs with a maple neck (AA flame upgrade) The pick ups are unbelievable! Almost dead silent and great clarity, but with the ability to sound Trowerish & SRVish through a Gibson Goldtone GA15 and my fender Vibro-Champ(1966) Snarly Overdrive with amps cranked and a toadworks Txflood pedal. Great Quack. Neck is comfortable and a work of art. This is my first guitar where I'm not changing a think on it! This beauty will not dissapoint! BUY!BUY!BUY!
