True to a remarkable era, the Fender Custom Shop 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. 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.
