More about 2014 Proto Stratocaster®

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. We’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 birdseye maple neck with our “number three” early-’60s “C”-shaped profile and a smooth satin finish.

Other features include a maple or round-laminated hand-selected rosewood fingerboard with a 9.5” radius and 22 medium jumbo frets, Texas Special™ neck and middle pickups, Custom Hand-Wound Fat ‘60s Single-Coil 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. Available in Arctic White, Black and Faded Three-color Sunburst finishes.
