I just looked at a bunch of CS Strats online and everyone that interested me turned out to have the truss rod adjustment at the heal of the neck (this is even HSS configured Strats).

Really?! You'll change the frets to medium jumbo or higher and have a modern fretboard radius, but NOT the truss rod? D-U-M-B!

No wonder I don't own a CS Strat (and I definitely can afford them).

Nostalgia is a powerful drug. And just like crack and heroin, it can make you do stupid stuff.

Get 'cherself a 70's CS Strat with a bullet adjuster on the headstock :o)

Taking the neck off to tweak the truss rod and dealing with shims is a total drag, if you like to do your own set-ups.

However, if you're buying a CS guitar that is an exact replica of a vintage model, then this feature makes sense.

Yea, they should definitely offer models with headstock adjust. I'm still waiting for a nice walnut plug adjust. Maybe they have done it.

Vintage models, sure, but there should be some "player" or "modern" CS models with the more sensible features of today.

If I want a vintage copy though, I want that damn heel adjust. Only because it looks right. Guitar playing and music is an emotional affair, so nostalgia is right in there with it for me. I ain't a robutt, after all.

If irritation occurs

discontinue use.

If you're buying a CS production (e.g., limited run, etc.) clone of a 50s/60s Strat, Tele, or any other Fender, the heel adjust is part of the cost of admission.

On a custom order, the CS will make the neck any way you like. They can even do the Gotoh side-adjust truss rod, which is superb.

Oh nice. I didn't know they did the Gotoh side adjust. I like those. Makes most seasonal changes easy.
