About This Listing

The brainchild of Fender’s Director of Wood Technology Mike Born, this limited-edition Malaysian Blackwood Telecaster 90 puts a decidedly exotic twist on the legendary platform. The alder body boasts the same familiar look and feel of a Tele but is topped with a beautiful piece of Malaysian blackwood. The guitar is further customized with a duet of P-90 single-coil pickups that impart the Tele with a little extra midrange muscle. And the figured maple neck is carved for an extremely comfortable Deep-C profile. This is a stunning Telecaster that won’t be available long.
Limited-edition construction
This guitar takes the familiar Telecaster in a new and gorgeous direction. To maintain all that everyone loves about Teles, Fender carves the Blackwood Tele 90’s body from even-sounding alder. But it’s the Malaysian blackwood top that really stands out. Blackwood is a cousin to ebony and is similarly dense, smooth, and very hard. This delivers much of the same clear tonalities and fast response of its more well-known family member. But the grain and coloration in the blackwood are breathtaking to behold.
Dual P-90 pickups
To further customize this limited-edition instrument, Fender loaded it with a duet of their P-90 single-coil pickups. P-90s are very popular for the way they blend many tonal elements of humbuckers and traditional single-coil designs. You’ll enjoy the pristine top end and bell-like response from them, while added output in the mid frequencies punch your amp and pedals harder for a more aggressive personality. You’ll find P-90s loaded in many Sweetwater guitarists’ instruments — for very good reason.
Comfortable and beautiful neck
When designing the Blackwood Tele 90, Fender knew the limited-edition appointments had to extend to the instrument’s neck. That’s why it’s carved from an attractive piece of figured maple. The neck boasts a Deep-C profile and 9.5″ fretboard radius that fills your hand but is thin enough to allow for faster fretwork while always remaining comfortable. Aiding in fretboard performance is the neck’s satin finish on the back, while a glossy front maintains a stage-ready appearance.
