1969 Orig 100% Lake Placid Blue Under The Bed Fender Stratocaster
1 Owner.. Collector Grade....
You will always have money, you can Not always find a Vintage Custom Color Fender Stratocaster in 100% Clean 9.2 out of 10 shape Investment!
This Strat Has it.. That is the Fact!
Agian ALL 1000% Original
Neck Date JUN 1969
Ser #$ on Neck Plate is 253786
Fender Neck Plate Ser# are 252000s to 291000s, so this is low # for 1969
Neck width and nut is a B, 1-5/8" Nut
Factory Jumbo Frets.. Really no wear to speak of, and truss rod has much room for adjustment.... in or out. Strat is set up now will a very straight flat neck.. The Way I like them!
This neck is a Nice Big size. I mean it feels great and a Mans neck
1st fret measures 22.03mm
12 Fret measures 23.67mm
Has 329 ink stamp on body, the 9 is for 1969
Neck pocket has the 14 circled ink stamp which is Fender's control marking and the original reddish neck shim is there, as Many Fender guitar's have neck shims.. Again this Investment grade Strat is ALL virgin pretty much.. I mean Clean is King!
Pots are 6618, which is 18th week 1966.. Most Fender Strat and Tele's from 66-69 have 66 pots.. Fender bought a million in 66 and just used them
Pickups all have 9 at end of date stamp, 9 again is 69. I love the blue wire used on pickup leads with the custom color LPB customer ordered color!****
Neck pickup reads 5.83k
The Strat is Bell Tone City, pots all quiet, 3 way works solid and nice.. You can jockey the 3 way in between the 2&4 positions and get all 5 way Strat tones we love, without having to install a 5 way, thus taking it out of 100% Investment Grade. No belt rash to say on back of body.. This Baby really has been under the bed ALL THESE Years...
I have pics with other Orig 68,69 Custom color Strat's to get you in the Jimi Era Mode... Even these pics you never seen like this before.... Rush City*******!
This baby is just one of those Gems you can't put down. Has Fat Neck, plays like Butter, Very Tone'FULL, Very Vibe City.. Just knowing your playing a Very Very Rare Custom Color Clean 1 Owner Strat JUST PUTS YOU IN VIBE'Ville!!!!
I put new strings on, and it tunes up quick and stays in tune. You know some guitar's you got to mess with it, keep going back in forth to get it to tune up, or play like butter... Some you never get to this point, you got to pick the happy medium.. Not this one!:::::)))))))
Only issue is around edges there is black marks some from having one of those Fender body guards on it and sitting in the case most of time for last 46+ years. Thus the foam inside them plastic body guards reacted with the finish.. Back is clean, top is.. Whole neck is.. If didn't have the marks on edge, it be 25k+ Strat. You just do not find them all 100%, clean.. Non smoker owned.. Really a time capsule.
Has orig them arm, bridge cover. Case is the mid 1966 one, with the Fender logo, no circle R above Fender.. Then in late 1960 Fender had the Fender with the tail logo on the Black Tolex case.. This Strat is Class.. The latches spring open on case.. The case is in Excellent shape also. Has some Vintage 1960's Fender pics and strings.. Enjoy the pictures folks.. I'm even excited having this.. I usually like beat up Strat's, but when it comes to Custom Color Rare.... I get happy*****
