OVERVIEW

Classic looks with key innovations under the hood.

Proto Series models (formerly Pro Series) are the Fender Custom Shop's proving-ground instruments, built with distinctive features typically requested for Master Built guitars and basses. They've incorporated several such features into a special custom instrument-the 2014 Proto Stratocaster, which has a hand-selected light ash body and a AAA bird's-eye maple neck with the "number three" early-'60s "C"-shaped profile and a smooth satin finish.

Other features include a maple fingerboard with a 9.5" radius and 22 medium jumbo frets, Texas Special neck and middle pickups, Super 55 Split-Coil Stratocaster bridge pickup, stripped-down control configuration (master volume, master tone, five-way pickup switch), Custom Classic tremolo system, locking tuners, and graphite nut for easier tuning and minimal string slippage.

  • Early '60s neck profile
  • Maple fretboard with 22 medium jumbo frets

    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.
