Description & Specs

The Artisan Koa Thinline Stratocaster is an enticing and elegant guitar with everything you’d expect in playability and tone from the Fender Custom Shop. Stunning in look, sound and feel, it has a hollow roasted-ash body with an “F” hole and 4A figured koa top, which makes for an unusually alluring aesthetic and distinctive tone. The 3A birdseye maple neck is sculpted with a comfortable 1960 “oval-C” profile, topped by a beautiful Macassar ebony fingerboard with a compound radius (9.5”-12”) and 21 narrow tall frets.

The 11-hole single-ply brown shell pickguard holds three hand-wound Fat ’60s pickups, with five-way switching and Strat 1/2 Blender wiring, which lets the player blend in the neck pickup in switch positions 1 and 2 for extra tonal options. Other features include Custom Shop vintage synchronized tremolo, vintage-style tuning machines with brown shell buttons, bone nut, and “wing” string tree with metal spacer. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
