Hand-selected tonewoods give you the sound and feel you demand

Since Fender's early days, ash and alder have played a major role in defining the sound of the Strat. These lightweight and highly resonant woods give your sound the natural definition, clarity, and punch you expect. The extremely lightweight and extra-dense swamp ash the Fender Custom Shop selected for this 2012 Closet Classic Stratocaster Pro takes all of these qualities to the next level, delivering a guitar that's both more comfortable and more expressive than a typical Strat. Add to that the 2012 Closet Classic Stratocaster Pro's quartersawn hard maple neck with a mild, early '60s C-shape neck, and you've got a classic style axe built to go well beyond modern performance standards.

Get huge tone from these Abby hand-wound pickups

You haven't heard what a Strat can really sound like until you plug your new Fender Custom Shop 2012 Closet Classic Stratocaster Pro into your favorite guitar amplifier. That's because the Fender Custom Shop outfitted this remarkable instrument with an equally remarkable set of single-coil pickups. When you hear these hand-wound Abby pickups in action, you'll experience an openness, clarity, and note definition you've never heard before. What's more, 5-way switching with a modern middle/bridge tone control lets you get even more out of these classic pickups. There are countless reasons why Abigail Ybarra is still among the greatest legends in the guitar world. Pick up a Fender Custom Shop 2012 Closet Classic Stratocaster Pro, and you'll know why.

Fender's Deluxe 2-point Synchronized Tremolo delvers serious stability

If you're the kind of guitar player who actually uses that tremolo arm on your instrument, then you're sure to appreciate the Fender Custom Shop 2012 Closet Classic Stratocaster Pro's bridge. Unlike most classic-style Strats, which feature period vintage tremolo bridges, the 2012 Closet Classic Stratocaster Pro sports a modern 2-point Synchronized Tremolo. Loaded with polished solid stainless steel saddles and a block to match, this highly responsive trem makes pulling off from subtle bends to extreme dive-bomb drops natural and easy. And bolstered by a set of Fender/Gotoh vintage-style machine heads, you'll get both the range and stability you need from your 2012 Closet Classic Stratocaster Pro's tremolo bridge.
