    A truly great Hendrix era Strat, this 1970 4 neck bolt Fender Stratocaster should tick a whole lot of boxes for those of you seeking that iconic tone.

    The body has been superbly refinished by the venerable Clive Brown, aged accordingly to match the wear of the neck and hardware both of which are original. Sonic Blue is a classic Strat shade, there is no denying that.

    The neck still has its original finish. This is still glossy and feels very comfortable. There are patches of wear and the obligatory cigarette burn on the headstock. The neck has been refretted and they have plenty of life left in them. The fretboard is in great shape.

    The hardware shows signs of use but is not excessively corroded.  

    Electrically we have a trio of grey bottom pickups with no rewinds at all. Most of the  solder is undisturbed and in very tidy shape as you can see from images. The volume pot has been changed. Pots are dated at week 21 of 1970 and the switch has been changed to a five way.

    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 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.

    Big headstock, custom colour, that unmistakable 70’s vibe, Spanish castle magic and all…
