I’ve been thinking about possibly taking the plunge and buying a CS Tele or Strat. I did a little browsing and found a couple CS Strats at a nearby Guitar Center. The first guitar I tried was a medium relic 55 Strat that had one of the worst fret jobs I’ve ever encountered! We’re talking fret ends that felt like tips of nails! It also had super high action and and one tone knob was stripped where you couldn’t turn it. The second was a heavy relic 59 Strat but was soon informed that it needed to come off the wall anyway to be sent back because a customer returned it because of a twisted neck ( not sure why they had it hanging on the wall?). Is this common for the Custom Shop? I mean...$4300 and $4500 is A lot of dough to drop on a guitar.
