These don't come up very often, and when they do they're $1500 and up. Mine is priced more than fair for the genuine wear and a little relicing done by a previous owner. All stock other than I upgraded the pickups to a Fender factory loaded 57/62 set on a mint guard. Not really looking for trade but it doesn't hurt to ask. May consider Mesa Boogie amps and Gibson Les Pauls. When I got it, the Fender logo on the headstock was half gone so I removed the rest with naphtha and just didn’t replace it. You can see from the pictures that it’s obviously genuine original Fender neck.  here are the specs from Fender.
