The release of Fender’s luxuriously appointed Rarities electric guitars continues apace, with the arrival of the Flame Maple Top Chambered Telecaster.

As the name suggests, the latest model features a chambered, two-piece roasted alder body with natural flame maple top.

Fender tone guru Tim Shaw is the man behind the pickups, which comprise a Tele bridge single coil and ShawBucker 1T humbucker in the neck.

Other features include a modern C-shaped neck profile with 9.5”-radius fingerboard, vintage-style hardware and a vintage-style Tele bridge with three compensated steel saddles.

The Rarities Flame Maple Top Chambered Telecaster is available now for $2,499/£2,249, including vintage-style hardshell case.
