Fender Custom Shop '69 Strat Journeyman with Rosewood Fingerboard - Aged Olympic White

The 1969 Stratocaster was a model of modification - not necessarily fundamental changes, but it's clear that the big-headed "CBS" era helped shape the modern Stratocaster as we know it. 

Versus the earlier '60s models, the '69 saw a replacement of tuners - away went the classic Klusons, swapped for the "F" keys. The veneer slab fingerboards of earlier in the decade were replaced by true Indian rosewood (or occasionally an optional maple cap.) The "C" shaped neck became a "U", and the '69 came to fruition. 

What we have here is an homage to that evolution straight from the Custom Shop itself. A two-piece alder body in Aged Olympic White meets a maple "U" neck and solid rosewood fingerboard. Twenty-one Narrow Tall frets with mother-of-pearl dot inlays lead from the oversized headstock and Schaller "F" keys to a hand-wound '69 Strat single coil at the neck and bridge - between them, a '69 Strat reverse wound single coil on a parchment relic pickguard.

Comes with original Fender hard shell case, certificate of authenticity, Shop Floor Traveller, tremolo arm, "Ashtray", strap, picks and Custom guide. 

 

As always, this guitar ships fully insured with signature required.
