    This lightweight (just a shade above 3 Kg), 4 bolt, classic single string tree hardtail Strat is in stunning condition with hardly any wear. The sunburst refinish is excellent, capturing the vibe of the original finish. 

    The neck is still glossy and feels very comfortable. There is plenty of  life left in the frets. There are some slight imperfections to the lacquer round the base of the headstock, probably from being in a stand. Neck date reads March 1970.

    Under the hood we find classic grey bottom pickups in brilliant shape with no rewinds at all. All solder is undisturbed as you can see from images. Pot dates read week 14 of 1970. There is evidence another pickguard has been on the guitar at some stage.

    The guitar comes with the correct hardshell case.

    Looking for Hendrix tones? If you’ve read this far then surely that’s the case! This guitar does not disappoint. Plenty of that late 60’s/early 70’s spanky tone which is so unique to guitars from this era. Neck pickup has that chewy quality, the middle and bridge ramping up the treble content.

    It has been some time since we have come across one this clean. For those of you who want that tone, this guitar certainly delivers, Spanish castle magic and all…
