What comes to mind when you think late '60s Strat? Jimi, right? Well, the good folks at the Fender Custom Shop nailed that vibe with this '68 Strat w/Journeyman level relic'ing. It looks, feels, plays, and sounds a heck of a lot like a vintage Strat with the exception of a few desirable/modern tweaks - the biggest being the 7.25-9.5" fingerboard radius and 5-way pickup switch.
Tones? Stellar. Beautiful compression, great bell tones, great balance of warmth and bite...it's exactly what you want from a great Stratocaster, nothing more, nothing less.
This is a dream Strat for Strat lovers, Hendrix fans, or anyone looking for an easy to play, lively, perfected late 60s Strat! Priced with hardshell case.
