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. Giving it our signature Relic® treatment, a WLS undercoat priming a lacquer finish on a hand-selected two-piece select alder body and comfortable urethane finish on the neck completes this mouth-wateringly faithful Strat®.

In period-correct fashion, hand-wound ’69 pickups, complemented by 5-way switching and Vintage Modified #2 wiring, transcend the passage of time to recreate the warm and chimey tonal options you’d expect of this sublime guitar.

Additional appointments include a 9.5”-radius fingerboard, 21 6105 frets, 3-ply Eggshell pickguard, American Vintage synchronized tremolo, Fender “F”-stamped tuning machines, bone nut and wing string tree with nylon spacer. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
