Here a players grade 1968 CBS Fender Stratocaster dated 22 Nov 1968. This guitar is in fair condition for its year with a few modifications over the years. The guitar maintains its factory Blue finish, albeit some touching ups have been done, including the neck pocket. The hardware and has had some electrics replaced like the 5-way switch, the 3-way selector in the case, this can easily be changed. The neck has had a re-fret and been upgraded to jumbo frets. String trees have been used and the holes in the headstock have been filled in. Sound is cool and guitar handles well.
