Combining exotic tonewoods with premium pickups and appointments, the limited-edition Rarities Collection creates a truly unique musical experience. The Rarities Flametop Stratocaster® HSS Thinline features a mahogany body with a maple top and solid rosewood neck. The Custom Shop 69 single-coil pickups add a breathy, open note to the traditional Strat® voice while the custom DoubleTap™ bridge pickup offers both a sweet humbucking voice and— via an S-1 switch—dynamic single-coil sound.
The “Deep C”-shaped solid rosewood neck provides a warm midrange while the 9.5”-radius fingerboard and narrow-tall frets make bending easy. Other features include pearloid inlays, two-point synchronized tremolo with bent-steel saddles and pop-in arm, staggered-height tuning machines and special Limited Edition neck plate. Includes a brown vintage-style hardshell case.
