1968 Fender Stratocaster - 3t-Sunburst (early transition model!)
1968 Fender Stratocaster - 3t-Sunburst incl. orig. black Fender Tolex case
Clean 1968 Fender Stratocaster in 3-tone Sunburst finish, all original and in excellent condition for a 50(!) year old guitar. This is an early 68 model with many of the desired ´67 features such as "black-bottom" pickups and the transition logo on headstock, the neckstamp reads 13 JAN 68 B, all 3 Centralab pots are stamped 304.66.08 dating them to 8th week of 1966, the three original "black-bottom" pick-ups are well balanced with outputs of N=5,71K, M=5,70K and B=5,82K. The guitar has been played, so there is some minor playwear, mostly laquer wear on the backside of the neck but no bigger damages or repairs, everything is factory stock, still has the 3-way switch, all untouched solderjoints, never had any other tuners! Lightweight guitar, the neck has a medium size C-profile and is very comfortable to play. Comes in black Fender Tolex case with orange plush interior.
