Players who prize timeless Stratocaster style and the familiar warmth of P90 pickup sounds will find the best of both worlds in the Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition Dual P90 Strat Deluxe Closet Classic.
This is a Strat through and through, but with a singularly unusual design element—rather than the conventional three-pickup layout, this limited-edition model features two Custom Shop P90 pickups, calibrated for the balance and output of great classic P90 sounds.
That’s not the only distinctive feature, though. The one-piece body is fashioned from vintage Michigan mahogany wearing a deluxe Closet Classic lacquer finish.
The roasted quartersawn maple neck has a comfortably large “C” profile, topped by a 12”-radius round-lam rosewood fingerboard with 21 Jumbo (6100) frets ideal for classic to modern playing styles. Both pickups are mounted on a single-ply black phenolic pickguard and feature three-way switching and Fat ’50s dual P90 wiring with master volume and tone controls.
Other premium features include vintage-style Strat hardtail bridge for solid tone and sustain, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut, and wing string tree with tall metal spacer. Also includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
