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.
