Hi, there Today I had a luck to play a stratocaster 1968 in Olympic White original finish. The fingerboard is rosewood with large head stock. The amp I used was not that good, so I couldn't feel some kinda vibe like Jimi Hendrix. It needs proper setting, but sounds so nice!! I want to try it with small tube amp. I have a stratocaster made in 1962 and mine sounds much better. I think the 1968 neck I played today is a bit fat comparing with 1962. Believe the neck width are the same but neck is bigger than mine. tone control knob is missing and wiring was modified. Pick ups are original black bobbins which are common this era. The back of the neck is worn out. The head stock turned very dark because of old smoke.bridge and saddles are original except saddle height screws. Some screws for the pickguard are not original, ones for bridge pickup height aren't original. 3 way switch is OK. The guitar is hanging on the wall for sale for 3 years!! The owner asks $8000. What do you think? The owner wants to sell it fast. Anyone?
