Introducing Fender’s New Flame Maple Top Stratocaster


This classic American guitar features a two-piece alder body with a flame maple Golden Brown top and a solid rosewood neck, capped with a flame maple fingerboard. The neck is a ‘Modern C’ profile with a 9.5″-14″ compound radius – pretty flat and suited to modern playing styles. It also features Fender’s modern two-point tremolo system.



This model comes with Pure Vintage ’65 Stat pickups and a custom-wound DoubleTap bridge pickup, all wired via a 5-way switch. The guitar also features the Fender S-1 switch incorporated into the Volume pot. 

The S1 switching incorporates the DoubleTap technology, which switches from a straight, full-on humbucking voice to a single coil sound Fender have described as ‘powerful’, adding versatility to the guitar, and suiting players after a bit more ‘poke’ in their bridge position.
