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.
