    i know theyre discontinued but i keep seeing the left-handed models on music123,Zsounds,MF. ive been scoping ebay everyday for them. im looking to buy either a MIJ '68 reissue, Voodoo strat, '68 reverse and theyre hard to come by nowadays.

    how does it sound? theyre using the Texas Specials in them now, arent they?
    i thought the ' 68 staggered poles that were in my ' 97 Voodoo sounded good.

    thanks GuitarTone. wow $579 is not a bad deal, does that include shipping?

    all of the MIJ ' 68 reissues i had were from the ' 90s and sounded great,ash body 3-Tone sunbursts. ive never tried the new CIJ ' 68's
