I am waiting for more pics and the serial number. To me it looks the like pups have chrome covers rather than nickel.

Hope the pics are better than the ones on CL.

No original parts ? ?

It looks like a late 1960s or early 1970s. The seller may have made a convenient typo and hit "0" instead of "9" while typing 1969 on their keyboard.
The witch-hat knobs and the burst colour look very late 1960s / early 1970s.

My vote is 1969, on the limited info available. That color is not unusual for '69, and I've never seen it on a '60. All the parts, the logo and what looks like a 1 5/8" nut say '69.
