The guitar weighs 7 lbs. 11 oz. Neck measures .827" at 1st fret and .995" at 12th fret making this a nice, medium to full feeling neck in the hand, bigger than some of the thinner necks of the early 60's. Original neck pickup measures 7.3K Ohms, Original bridge pickup measures 6.9K Ohms.

The guitar ships in a cool vintage, non Fender case with green lining, in fair condition but perfectly functional.

This is a very nice '65 Tele, sounds a plays great, solid recommendation on this one.
