Fender Custom Shop put out some truly special pieces this year, and we were very fortunate to take in this beauty.
This Limited Edition P90 Mahogany Telecaster in Aged Firemist Red is one of the most unique telecasters to come through the shop. Pulling inspiration from the great slab-body Gibson electrics of the late 50s and early 60s and marrying that with some modernized blackguard flair, this Telecaster packs a serious punch.
The Handwound P90 provides bigger, fatter tone and response that still offers great clarity, with the handwound reverse Nocaster pickup pairs up very well and has excellent bite and authority with great midrange cut. The flatter fingerboard radius and large C carve remind us more of that Gibson feel, but the longer Fender scale brings in that added snap and response we love in a great tele. A beautifully figured chambered mahogany keeps things lightweight and resonant, and looks quite spectacular against the rich amber hues of the highly figured roasted flame maple neck.
There's no doubt it's got the looks, but the tones are a match through and through. Here's a great opportunity to snag another exceptional instrument from FCS
