Fender Rarities Flame Maple Top Stratocaster
Rare, Bold, and BeautifulWildwoodians, you see before you a completely unprecedented Fender Stratocaster. This Golden Brown beauty from the Rarities Collection has an alder body with a killer flamed maple top, which looks great with the darker finish. The neck is made of solid rosewood, but it has a flamed maple fretboard, which we have never seen before. And that's saying something, because we see a lot of guitars come through Wildwood! As a result of this unique wood combo, these guitars have an uncommonly articulate attack that gives way to lush, sweet, glassy, chiming resonance.
Two Pure Vintage '65 Gray-Bottom Single-Coils and DoubleTap Humbucker (with coil-tapping, as its name implies) do an admirable job of delivering a wide variety of tones. With classic Fender single-coil tone and hot humbucking muscle on tap, you can confidently make your way through any gig, jam, or session (and look good doing it!).
Oh, and the neck feels wonderful, too. It has a modern C-shaped profile, which works for most styles and techniques. It also has a compound 9.5" to 14" radius, which allows for low setups, easy chording down low, and easy bending up high.
All of this adds up to a guitar that is as inspiring as it is eye-catching. We're proud to showcase such a killer axe for our exceptional customers, and we know the Rarities Flame Maple Top Strat will inspire you to reach new heights on your fretboard journey.
