Product description

This beautiful Aged Olympic White 1969 Strat breathes the true look and feel of the late sixties.

It is a model from the 2018 Time Machine Series, in which Fender have taken the concept of reissue instruments even further by crafting meticulous replicas, using the same techniques and tooling as the originals.

Here is what Fender write about the model:

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.
