Combining original-era Fender style with modern refinements and hand-wound Custom Shop Dual Mag pickups, the Limited Edition ’55 Dual-Mag Strat Closet Classic could only have been created by the visionaries of the Fender Custom Shop. Calibrated for balance and volume, the Custom Shop Dual-Mag single-coil Strat pickups are a unique design, based around a proprietary blend of magnet types. Alnico 2 magnets temper the treble strings while alnico 5 magnets give a piano-like punch to the bass strings. All pickups are wrapped with copper tape and grounded to reduce EMI.
The two-piece ’55 select ash body has deep contours and a closet classic lacquer finish for comfort—like a comfy pair of blue jeans—while the tinted, rift-sawn maple neck sports a “’54 Soft V”-shaped profile. The 7.25”-9.5” compound-radius fingerboard and 21 #6105 frets give the neck a welcomingly comfortable playing feel. Under the hood, this guitar features a Strat ½ Blender wiring. The pickup routes and control cavity are shielded and grounded for reduced EMI while the anodized Gold pickguard is a cool aesthetic touch, as are the “transitional” ’54 pickup covers and ’55-style knobs. Other features include 5-way switching, vintage-style synchronized tremolo and tuning machines, bone nut and wing string tree. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
