Simply drenched in vintage mojo…If channeling some of Hendrix’s magic into your playing is what you desire, this is the guitar that needs to be in your hands. Here we have a killer Fender ST68-JH  ’68 reissue Stratocaster that is just begging for center stage. The appeal of this guitar lies in the perfect harmony of its visual and sonic appeal. It a true testament to Jimi and how he really played the guitar with this being a left handed body set up to play right handed. Except this is all original out of the factory with no extra strap holes or changed nuts. The alder body has a finish that is aged to perfection and a pinch of natural, light relic luster. It has truly blessed American made vintage Strat pickups, full size pots and is paired with an a quarter-sawn Oval profile maple neck with a maple cap fingerboard. It was produced at the world famous Tokai-Gakki Factory in Japan, rest assured that the tradition of quality and craftsmanship is seeping out of every pore of this cream colored monster. This baby is versatile enough to rock out virtually any genre of music and is just one of those guitars that is just so much fun to play… It is in very good condition with most of the battle scars being limited to the edges. The front and back have scattered tiny dings and light surface marks, but nothing crazy and the fretboard has a dark spot (could be a burn/ding), but it does not affect the playability. It has been professionally setup for optimal tone and playability and is seeking a die-hard musician who is looking for a new musical adventure ala Hendrix style.
