The luxuriously appointed Strat boasts a two-piece alder body with flame maple Golden Brown top and a solid rosewood neck capped with a flame maple fingerboard.
An HSS pickup configuration includes Pure Vintage ’65 Strat pickups and a DoubleTap bridge pickup, complete with S-1 switch to split to single-coil sounds.
Like the rest of the series, the Flame Maple Top Stratocaster is a limited-edition release, with plenty more Rarities in the offing - you can take a sneak peek in our original NAMM story.
The Rarities Flame Maple Top Stratocaster is available now for $2,499 - see Fender for further info.
Meanwhile, Fender’s other staggered series, the Alternate Reality range, recently debuted The Sixty-Six, which reimagines the Jazz Bass as a guitar.
