Fender launch the Rarities Series Koa Flame Ash Top Stratocaster

We Need A New Guitar, Strat!

Fender have today announced the latest entry in their recently minted Rarities Series, unveiling the rather eye catching Koa Flame Ash Top Stratocaster.

The new gorgeous guitar features a bold ash body with a flame Koa top, and it appears that Fender are on a bit of a (six-string) bender, saying that there are more silky Strats on their way soon.



Rocking custom Tim Shaw overwound 59 gold foil single coil pickups in the neck and middle positions and a deluxe Shaw custom Filter'Tron™-style humbucking pickup in the bridge, the new inspired model has a warm, clear and powerful voice, perfect for players looking to cut through the mix with a dynamic tone.


The classic Stratocaster feel and response is kept in the "Modern C" shaped quartersawn neck, while the 9.5"-radius fingerboard keeps a comfortable fingerboard with narrow-tall frets.



Meanwhile, July and August will see two new killer Fender guitars hit the shelves, with a Chambered Flame Top Telecaster and an American Original '60s Quilt Top telecaster dropping in those months respectively.
