    3K? a lot more or a little less? Vintage Fenders are tricky- beat down you can tell they are well played and are devalued because of it.
    Whereas nice condition makes me wonder how and/or why nobody has played it. Test drive first. It is a good time to buy. Cheers.

    a sunburst (non custom color) in nice condition should be 3K tops. Remember this is a private party sale, a dealer would want more obviously. Nice find, if you like it I would buy it, it will appreciate in value. I love mine

    $7-11k???

    Sorry, not even close.

    $3k with case, common colour, all original but no covers is fair IMO.

    A Retailer may ask $4499 or $4999, but it would sit forever.

    3k-3200 sounds right in todays market, but are you sure it's a 1969? The one detail that tells me it might be more like a 71, is the longer G intonation screw. You really don't find those on 69's. Unless that bridge or intonation screw was replaced by someone along the way.
    Check the usual three spots for date stamps: the butt of the neck, the undersides of the pickups, and the pots (but they might have 66 dates on the pots). IME the pickups are usually the most accurate date to a Fenders completion.
