Featuring a heavy relic treatment, this 1968 Stratocaster has the look of many years of hard use on the road. The guitar's premium ash body wood has great tone and is lightweight for playing comfort. The quartersawn maple U-shaped neck has the finish worn off the back for a great, played-in feel. A dark Indian rosewood fingerboard sports pearl face dots, and 21 frets. Custom Shop 1969 pickups have the sought-after sound of yesterday with the benefits of modern wiring. "F" tuners and aged hardware complete the dream.
