Lovies Guitars is Excited to offer up this 2020 Fender Limited Edition Rarities 60’s QMT Stratocaster w/ Rosewood Neck! The Fender Quilt Maple Top Stratocaster is April’s entry in their Rarities Series, and it’s an eye-popping visual feast. Everything is centered around an alder Strat body — the mainstay for Fender bodies. But scope out this guitar’s quilt maple top and you’ll quickly realize that this isn’t your typical Stratocaster. It doesn’t sound like an off-the-shelf Strat, either. The alder is roasted, first of all. Beyond that, the maple injects it with a healthy dose of bite and sustain. Plug this bad boy in, and you’ll bask in a blues-ish, mid-‘60s-flavored tone with loads of bell-like top end via a trio of Pure Vintage ’65 gray-bottom single-coil pickups. And it plays like a dream — its solid rosewood neck and fingerboard feature a comfortable ‘60s C shape and easy-playing 9.5” radius. A striking gloss polyurethane finish and Pure Vintage hardware round out the Quilt Maple Top Stratocaster’s exciting features.
The Fender Rarities Series Quilt Maple Top Stratocaster is built from premium woods. Its roasted alder body is topped with eye-popping quilt maple, yielding an inviting, balanced blend of brightness, bite, and sustain. Its solid rosewood maple neck and fingerboard, besides offering exquisite playability, add extra warmth and smoothness to this guitar’s beautiful tonal cocktail. The Quilt Maple Top Strat’s gloss polyurethane finish adds a dazzling shine to its visually stunning finish.
The Quilt Maple Top Strat’s Pure Vintage ’65 gray-bottom single-coils are as period correct as they come, from the fiber bobbins and Alnico V magnets right down to the enamel-coated coil wire and cloth-covered output wires. Wax potting keeps feedback and icepicks to a minimum, while contemporary 5-way switching unlocks in-between tones that are impossible on a true ’65. Want an infectious, blues-ish tone with bell-like highs? Then, this is the Strat to get.
