2018 Fender Made in Japan Hybrid '68 Stratocaster White & new Hard Case

£819.00 + shipping






Here we have a fantastic example of a Hybrid 1968 Stratocaster from Fender in Japan. These Hybrid models are very popular.

It has been little used. I had a good look but can't find any other similar guitars for sale in the UK. Other than one small repaired dent on the back which is shown in the gallery, it's in fantastic condition. The frets have no visible wear & the guitar is an absolute pleasure to play.

Here's some blurb from Fender:

These Hybrid models perfectly mesh the new with the old by taking famous Fender looks and adding player friendly modern specifications. This Stratocaster features 250 mm (9.5") radius, medium jumbo frets, to a large headstock satin-finished neck with F-tuners. The recognisable Alder body is upgraded with Vintage US pickups, a 5-way switch and a 2-point tremolo with vintage style saddles.

All in all it's an excellent guitar from Fender in Japan that you probably won't find here in the UK​


Hard Case Policy


As said many times, all my guitars come shipped in a new black hard case which is included in the price. I find this is the safest way to avoid damage in transit.  Alternatively, if you are collecting the guitar and, like some buyers have cases coming out of their ears, that's no problem, I'll adjust the price (usually around a £50 discount) and I can usually find you an old gigbag to take the guitar away in. The only hard and fast rule I have is that I won't ship a guitar in a gigbag.

If you are further interested in this guitar, you can either email me with any queries & I'll do my best to get back to you within 24 hours.


Or, you can buy quickly and safely using the PayPal "buy now" button and I will ship to most UK addresses the next working day. Highlands and Islands can be slightly dearer but I'll keep the cost as low as I can.

I can accept credit card payments by phone and will also offer a small discount to purchasers using bank transfer payments.

Overseas customers are very welcome but please email me first for shipping quotes.
