"Originally my work was design, modification, repair, and custom building. I guess you would say the objectives were durability, performance, and tone." - Leo Fender

What comes to mind when you think '68 Strat? Jimi @ Woodstock, right? Iconic. Well, the good folks at the Fender Custom Shop nailed that vibe with this '68 Aged Olympic White 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'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.
