A feast for the eyes and ears, this Fender Rarities Strat has a maple neck and fingerboard, two-piece ash body, and a striking flamed koa top.
The flamed koa top adds a bit of warmth and solid midrange to the ash's natural brightness and sustain. Couple that with the custom Tim Shaw pickups and you have a guitar capable of going from clear, bright, chiming tones, to a throaty Texas growl and everything in between.
The one-piece "Modern-C" shaped maple neck with 9.5 radius and narrow-tall frets is designed for hours of comfortable playing whether you're on stage, in the studio, or woodshedding at home.
The tremolo is a classic Fender 6-point synchronized bridge in chrome that fits perfectly with the vintage look of the pickups. Custom 59' neck and middle pickups have open-top chrome covers with gold foil inserts while the bridge humbucker has a classic filter'tron cover, this guitar looks as good as it sounds!
We all need a statement guitar, make your's the Rarities Flame Koa Top Strat.
