Beginning its evolution as a stripped down Mustang, the MusicMaster has taken on a life of its own And it has gained a renewed reputation being a tone machine that is simple, stays outta your way and just lets you rip.
This particular one was likely produced in 1980. The neck and body date back to '78 while the pot codes are dated 1980 (likely the point at which it was assembled). In its original black finish, it has aged absolutely beautifully over the years. It's got dings, playwear, swirl...all the signs to let you know that this guitar has seen action and it's ready for more (see pics). Born from an alder body, maple neck (0.904"-0.938"), rosewood fretboard (7.25" radius), with a 1 19/32" nut width. And it even sports the original single coil pickup (5.6k)
This is no museum piece. This guitar wants to be played! The neck and headstock are clean with light signs of age and playwear. The body has buckle rash and swirl on the back. The front of the body has two blemishes in the finish behind the bridge (that look like attempts at a finish touch-up) along with swirl and shallow dings (see pics).
Our techs here have given it a fresh setup and fret level and made sure that it plays to the best of its potential. We'll ship this vintage bad boy to you super fast and super safe in its hardshell case.
