One of thé last `Vintage´ Stratocasters. Strats from ´68, ´69 & ´70 all share the same specs and are identical. This is Jimi Hendrix´ favorite Stratocaster model! Sounds deep, fat and this Strat in Sunburst is just a killer guitar!
This 1970 Strat has the decal with 2 patent no.´s on the headstock. Old style bridge with steel block and punched saddles. Finish with catalised undercoat & lacquer topcoat. Four bolt neck, no Walnut skunkstripe, dated grey bottom pickups.
7 3/4 inch radius Fretboard, bone nut. Slim type neck profile. Neck is in great playing condition, and the trussrod is only tightened slightly. The guitar has had a refret whick was professionally and well executed. The celluloid pickguard is a typical feature for this Stratocaster (Mother of Toiletseat on one side and aged white on the other). Like as with just about any old Strat, a 5-way switch has been installed.
Pot date: 7002 = (2nd week of ´70) , PU date: 7170 = 03-03-70
Neck stamp 22 (Stratocaster) 20 (feb 1970) 202 (production number) B (standard neck 41mm)
