are there any significant differences other than minor specs and craftsmanship? Is it worth the $$ to purchase a Custom Shop strat? thanks!
I've owned/own each, and some stds. have more character than some customs, BUT...customs generally are more likely to display the desired features s/a more resonant, lighter, and the great customs I still have (always will) are truely over-the-top in all categories. But like Unburst states, I've played some great stds. Go Towson! PS...it's certainly a lot EASIER to find a great custom than a great std., but if you have the time and patience, it's quite rewarding to spot that diamond-in-the-rough.Originally posted by Unburst
Well, a lot of people will tell you that a CS guitar is bound to be so much better than a producion line.
I've had both and that is not my opinion at all.
There is no absolute answer to your question, there are great
CS guitars and production line ones too.
You have to go and play a bunch until one speaks to you, whether it's a CS, MIA, MIM, CIJ or whatever.
