    i ordered it today from the Music Zoo and am waiting for it to ship. I am so excited this is my first custom shop fender and it looks awesome. I got it in dirty white blonde finish and unfortunately they took down the guitar off the site before I could save pictures. If you have one let me know what you think.

    My favorite Strat color. In real life, the translucent look over ash is gorgeous. Enjoy.

    Yes that is the one I tried to post the pics but it wouldn’t work from my iPad for some reason.

    Congrats!

    I have a strong feeling this is going to be an incredible guitar.

    I purchased my Custom Shop Nocaster from Music Zoo last year. I was reading a thread last night where people were bashing Custom Shop guitars but I suspect most of them have never owned or played one.

    My Nocaster was a far better instrument than any of the American Reissues that I have had and totally worth what I paid. Unfortunately, I stupidly sold it a couple weeks ago and immediately regretted that. Currently looking for another Custom Shop guitar to replace it.

    I suspect you've seen Paul Davids video on this guitar, but if not:

    I had one of those. In fact I ordered it before they were widely available. Excellent guitar. I sold it while i was downsizing my collection. I miss it.

    Yeah that video is actually what made me more aware of this model. His has different pickups, but maybe that’s because it was the European model. Yeah I found the same thing with my custom shop gold top les Paul it’s night and day to the factory stuff. I hope this one is the same, I have played a few custom shop Fenders and was mostly left feeling impressed.

    Great looking guitar and I think Dirty Blond is the pick of colours. I've been trying hard not to buy this one but posts like this are wearing me down.

    Please post more pics and your first impressions.

    Enjoy!

    Yeah I had to move some gear too and got lucky and sold my PRS so I bought it literally minutes after selling the PRS as I knew this one wouldn’t last.
