Comments about Fender Custom Shop Proto Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Maple Fingerboard:
This is quite a beautiful guitar. Smooth as can be. Great Neck. Pickups are a little harsh and need to be changed. Otherwise an exceptional guitar. A big upgrade from the American Series and worth it. Just wish Fender put in better quality pickups.
Straight out of the box the setup was pretty good. Definitely a keeper.
