Re: Fender Flame
: I have a early 80s Fender Flame (looks like a Les Paul) guitar and was looking for information on it. I know this guitar is rare but was wondering how rare. Any comments?
The Fender flame was produced in 1984 only and came in three models: the ultra, base w/trem and base as far as I have seen they were only available in black with ivory binding and a sunburst finish. The electronics, hardware humbuckers and trem were all unique to the flame so if your copy is in good condition great but if not good luck finding factory replacement parts. As far as rarity goes Fender only produced 800 instruments in 1984 according to a guitar history buff I know who specializes in yhis area. In my experience I have only seen or heard of four; mine, yours, and two that sold on e-bay. If you have other questions I have more info feel free to e-mail me.
