The original Fender short-scale electric, Music Master from 1960. This guitar has seen some modifications but the bones are well preserved. What's original: All electronics, bridge, plate, pickguard, frets, body and neck. Frets are well worn but still have life and play well. What's changed: original Dakota Red finish, and entire original nitro clear coat has been stripped and replaced with a smooth, oily lacquer that is well aged. Tuners have been changed to old six-in-line Schallers. The decal is an old replacement that is not period correct. Control knobs, strap pins, and pickguard screws are replacements. The date stamp typically present on the base of the neck has been sanded away.
Despite being far from collector-condition, this guitar sings beautifully. It is a great testament to the manufacturing methods and attention to detail Fender afforded even it's most basic models over 60 years ago.
Comes with the original hardcase.
