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 Violin Burst flame 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 Double Tap™ bridge pickup offers both a sweet humbucking voice and— via an S-1 switch—dynamic single-coil sound. FEATURES

  • Semi-hollow mahogany body with flame maple top
  • Custom, Double Tap™ humbucking bridge pickup; Custom Shop 69 single-coil Strat middle & neck pickups
  • “Deep C”-shaped solid rosewood neck; 9.5”-radius fingerboard
  • Two-point synchronized tremolo bridge
  • Includes vintage-style hardshell case



The semi-hollow mahogany body provides a breathy, open tone while the flame maple cap adds elegance to this guitar.


We matched a custom Double Tap™ humbucking pickup with two Custom Shop 69 single-coil pickups for a twist on the classic Fender tone.


The solid rosewood neck not only lends a rich note to the guitar’s voice, it also adds a refined look to the instrument.


The 22-fret “Deep C”-shaped neck is designed to fit your hand comfortably for any style of music.


The S-1 switch activates the Double Tap™ technology, switching from a humbucking voice to powerful single-coil sound.


The Rarities Flametop Stratocaster HSS Thinline includes a deluxe brown hardshell case.
