1969 Black Fender Strat

via this auction where you'll find more pics.

" No broken solder joints or routing under the guard. Frets and hardware are all original. The guitar has been played with signs of wear on the bottom and shoulders. Original hardcase is included. Neck date is black ink stamped "22 AUG 69B". Pickup routes are curved and not squared like in 1970s. The pickguard is original mother of pearl with the correct foil. There are no cracks on guard by the truss rod adjustment notch

The pickup and pot wiring is typical of a mid 1969 Stratocaster®. Green cloth wires mixed with blue, white and black plastic wires. This is a very common trait of these transition guitars. Many changes occured between 1969 and 1970..."
