The three-way switch currently installed is new (but with the old original tip), but the original one is in the case, it's broken and I don't know if it can be fixed - but I think it's not impossible.
The finish is original and in good conditions, with some checking and heavy wear on the back, which goes down to the wood. 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.
Custom color's rarity, light weight and sound make of this guitar a winner.
