Additionally, new technologies have dramatically changed the instrument requirements for home recording artist.

Comments about Fender Custom Shop Custom Special Edition Custom Classic Stratocaster:
Just got mine yesterday and really there is a lot of differencebetween a std and a Custom shop. as much as a squier to a americam.its just sounds great and i am having trouble putting it down.the neck feels a bit weird at the top 2 frets, but its easily playable sound so warm and nice.the finish is impecable the black case ties it together nicely.
