More about Limited Edition Dual P-90 Stratocaster® DLX Closet Classic
Guitarists 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. It’s 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 in a striking choice of Tobacco Sunburst, Burnt Copper or Aged Butterscotch Blonde. 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.
Each Custom Shop Limited Edition instrument is only available for a short time, which makes it eminently collectible and adds to its investment value. Crafted with many features reserved only for certain artists and master built instruments, they are just what the name says they are: highly anticipated limited-edition models that go very quickly.
