The wear-pattern and a small additional plugged hole from another strap-button on the lower horn, reveal that the previous owner was left-handed and used the guitar upside-down, la Hendrix.
All the parts are original: bridge, tuners, circuitry, staggered-pole pickups, potentiometers, three-way selector switch, plastic parts, etc.
The guitar comes with its original hardshell case, which in perfect conditions as well.
Another great Fullerton-era Stratocaster, in perfect and all-original conditions, in one of the rarest and most sought-after custom finishes: Lake Placid Blue.

Gorgeous sunburst finish in excellent condition, just some belt-buckle wear and fading of the red beneath the right arm, and a few scratches and dings on the body edges (all shown in pictures), but I'd conservatively rate this guitar's condition as an Excellent plus.
Excellent action, smooth and easy maple fretboard with frets in good condition.Not only it looks great, but it also has easy action and playability and a very comfortable profile.All the pickups work great and the guitar has the sound that gives pre-CBS Strats their legendary status.
