More about ARTISAN SPALTED MAPLE STRATOCASTER®

With its intricate color pattern and alluringly strong grain, the Artisan Spalted Maple Strat is an eye-catching example of the Fender Custom Shop’s art. Equal parts work of art and functional instrument, this guitar lets its exotic mix of roasted alder, spalted maple, roasted AAA birdseye maple and African blackwood do the talking, blazing forth with sonic and visual character.

Three hand-wound Custom Shop ’60/’63 single-coil Stratocaster pickups—including a RWRP middle pickup—provide authentic vintage-style tone, with all the pristine highs, punchy mids and robust lows that made the Strat a legend. Vintage Modified Strat #2 wiring adds even more sonic variety, connecting the middle pickup to the first tone control and adding our Tone-Saver treble-bleed circuit to the master volume control, ensuring your tone remains unchanged when reducing the instrument’s volume.

Other features include a lightweight two-piece body with nitrocellulose lacquer finish and WLS undercoat, “ ’63 Strat C”-shaped neck profile, 9.5”-12” compound-radius fingerboard, six-saddle vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge, gold hardware, 21 6105 frets, gold anodized pickguard, bone nut and wing string tree. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
