This is an extremely nice vintage 1974 Fender Stratocaster with original hard case. This guitar is all original and in clean excellent condition. The serial number is 5705XX. Again, this guitar is all original and super nice.The pots are date coded '137-7406' (6th week of 1974), '1377345' (45th week of 1973) and the code on the other pot is partially obscured by solder but I can see 1377XXX. The neck and bridge pickup are both stamped in red ink on the bottom '182474' and the middle pickup is stamped in black ink '142274'. Pickups have staggered pole pieces and all three have the green marks on the bottom (as they should). The back of the pickguard also has the appropriate hand written markings (see photo). All components are original and correct including 3 way switch and all solder joints appear to be completely original. The end of neck is ink stamped 0903 and has hand written marker (see photo). It looks like there were probably some more ink stamped numbers under the marker and I have seen this very same partial ink stamp on Strat necks of the same era. The heel of the neck has the appropriate inspector ink stamps (see photo). Body routs are all correct including worm rout and original polishing residue is visible in cavity (see photos). Body neck pocket is all correct and also has inspector ink stamps. All plastic parts are clean and nice with normal light wear but no cracks or chips. All chrome hardware is clean and nice with normal light wear but no pitting or plating loss. Original sunburst finish is clean and glossy with normal light s
