Jimi would be proud of this one --- This is another FANTASTIC find of a One Owner / Under The Bed STRAT. The gentleman I got it from purchased it NEW. He is a 62 year old gent who told me he bought it in Cleveland, Ohio when he was about 25 years old. He had an Acoustic @ the time & saw Hendrix in the movie "Woodstock" & HAD to have a STRATOCASTER. He moved down to Georgia in 1978 (Lumpkin,Co.). The guitar has NOT been out of the case since he moved south. The STRAT is in STUNNING Condition & VIRTUALLY Unplayed -- A FANTASTIC example of a 1969 STRATOCASTER ----------

A little History of what was going on in the world when this STRATOCASTER was built in August of 69' - The Woodstock Music & Arts Festival opened on Max Yasgurs farm in upstate New York / Hurricane Camille devastates the Gulf Coast / The Manson Family commits the Tate-LiBianca Murders in L.A. / The Beatles release the Abbey Road Album / Viet Namm was still going strong (MANY THANKS to ALL Viet Namm Vets)  - This was all happening in August of 1969 ----------
