For 2019, Fender have introduced the Rarities Collection; limited editions of their classics that stand out from the crowd. New woods, new design appointments, modern features – but still unmistakably Fender. The Flame Top HSS Strat features a number of tweaks that turn the classic design on its head – and the results are outstanding.

Key features:

  • Flamed Maple top with Golden Brown finish
  • 2-piece Roasted Alder Body
  • Unique Rosewood Neck & Maple fretboard combo
  • Pure Vintage ’65 Neck & Middle Pickups
  • Double Tap Humbucker bridge Pickup

Limited Edition Strat

This is a Strat quite unlike any other. A 2-piece Roasted Alder body offers a tight but resonant response that perfectly suits the Strat sound. Add a Flamed Maple top and Rosewood neck to the mix, and you’ve got a unique tonal cocktail that’s smooth and hard-hitting at the same time.

HSS pickup configuration

In order to harness this rare tonewood combo, Fender have armed this model with a Double Tap Humbucker pickup in the bridge and Pure Vintage ’65 middle & neck pickups. You can easily dial in classic punchy Fender tones, from positions 2 to 5, but roll it back to 1st position for weighty tone that perfectly suits modern playing styles.
