Fender Custom Shop '68 Stratocaster Relic at a Glance:

  • A reproduction of a classic instrument
  • Relic finish for a naturally worn-in look and feel

The '68 Strat represents a pivotal time for both music and Fender guitars. Its large headstock and round-lam fingerboard took us from Woodstock into a new era. Alder body, "C" shape maple neck, maple fingerboard, White/Black/White pickguard and original spec pickups are offered in this vintage classic. True to the original, the '68 Strat has a catalized undercoat and lacquer topcoat.

Relic finish for a naturally worn-in look and feel. This guitar looks and feels completely worn in, like your favorite pair of jeans. Fender's exclusive relic finish shows natural wear and tear of years of heavy use - nicks, scratches, worn finish, rusty hardware and aged plastic parts. The '68 Stratocaster Relic looks, feels and plays like it's taken the stage through many long nightclub hours.
