Summary: Here is a great playing example of a late 60s Strat that is in
incredible vintage condition……. Its look is iconic with a white guard on a
nicely aged sunburst finish, and so is the tone from its three coveted
gray-bottom pickups (the same kind used by Strat champions Hendrix, Clapton and
Gilmour to achieve their classic tones).
This guitar has a neck date of Jan 1968 and it includes the original
Body: Double cutaway contoured alder. Sunburst finish.
Neck: Maple neck with a Veneer rosewood fretboard with pearloid dot inlays.
Larger style headstock. Four bolt neck plate. F-stamped tuners. Single string
tree. 25.5” scale length. 1 9/16” nut width.
Pickups/Hardware: Three gray-back single coil pickups with staggered pole
pieces and white plastic covers. Three-way pickup selector (neck/middle/bridge)
with white switch tip. One volume and two tone controls with white plastic
knobs. Synchronized tremolo bridge (trem arm included in case) with individual
adjustable string saddles. White three-layer B/W/B pickguard.
Cosmetics: This guitar is in very good condition. There are few small marks to
the finish on top. The back has a bit more wear including some buckle rash, a
spot worn down to the wood from play, two areas where the finish has been marked
from a strap left in the case. The tip of the pickguard has chipped off (the
shielding in that area is still intact). A small piece of the plastic back
plate has also chipped off. The saddles have a little tarnish, but nothing that
Playability: The action is a comfortable medium. It plays great, and could
easily be adjusted to play preference. Frets
are in great shape, with some wear in the “cowboy chord” area. The fingerboard feels fabulous & the
guitar sings from low E to anywhere you want to go……Tone from the gray-back
pickups is classic Strat: round and warm in the neck, chimey in the middle, and spanky in the
