Description

True to a remarkable era, the 1968 Stratocaster® has an exceptional regality that resonates through the decades. Boasting an oversized headstock at the end of a riftsawn “U”-shaped maple neck, topped off with a round-lam maple fingerboard, this guitar has the unforgettable, classic feel that only the Fender® Custom Shop can create.

In period-correct fashion, hand-wound ’69 pickups, complemented by 5-way switching, transcend the passage of time to recreate the warm and chimey tonal options you’d expect of this sublime guitar.

Additional appointments include a 7.25 - 9.5” radius fingerboard, 21 Vintage Upgraded frets, 3-ply Eggshell pickguard, American Vintage synchronized tremolo, Fender “F”-stamped tuning machines. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity
