Measurements: 8 lbs 5 oz, 1 5/8" nut width, neck depth at first fret = .86", depth at 12th fret = .94".

Condition: Excellent! The finish has yellowed significantly. There's some light scratching on the back possibly from a belt buckle. No breaks, repairs, or modifications observed. 

Playability: Excellent! The neck is straight and the truss rod adjusts as intended. There's a significant amount of fret wear in the first 5 frets. The original pickups sound great! All electronics work as intended.

Notes: This amazing late 1960s Telecaster was lovingly played for its first decade or so of life but has been stored away until recently. I was pleased to purchase it from the man in the picture. I'm told that this was taken in 1969 on an Air Force base in Alaska.
