Scarce Fender Japan 1968 RI Olympic White Heavy Relic Stratocaster 2014 USA Pups
Here is a scarce Fender Japan model. It is a 1968 reissue Stratocaster in factory finished Olympic White (ST68-TX). These don’t come up often and were produced in much smaller numbers than the ST-57s & 62s etc. This one has had it's alder body stripped of the thick poly coating and been refinished in nitrocellulose lacquer and heavy relic processed. It’s from 2016 (JD serial number) has a resonant alder body with a maple cap (7.25 radius), stripeless maple neck, the cool larger resonant ’68 headstock with the CBS era decals, 4 bolt neck plate, stamped steel saddles and 3 x killer sounding USA Texas Special single coil pickups. There’s a maple neck with nice vintage 7.25" radius fingerboard and a 3-ply white pickguard. It is still all factory spec with no mods or repairs. The maple used for the neck and fingerboard has naturally darkened giving it a real vintage vibe. Neck dead straight, truss rod fine and plenty of life left in the frets. Structurally and electrically sound. Weight is 3.6kg. No structural or electrical issues. No tremolo arm but replacement 5mm Strat arms can be picked up for pennies. If you’re not interested in Mexican guitars are after something a bit special this is the one for you. A great chance to pick up a rare Fender Japan relic. Complete with green tweet softcase.
