Price : US $365.00
Up for sale is a classic 1978 Fender Musicmaster serial number S704354.
This guitar has sat for the last 20 years or so in a spare room and is not in good condition, but I believe someone with guitar repair skills can make this thing come to life again. I want to be completely honest about the condition of this guitar so feel free to ask me any questions. I'll try to give the answer I'd want if I was the buyer, but I am not an expert by any means.
The neck and head appear to be solid with no major cracks or gouges. The head is missing one tuning peg. The other five are there but one other sticks. They have the Fender 'F' printed on the back. Like many of the metal parts on this guitar they have quite bit of corrosion and have started to discolor the wood around them, but I think they can be cleaned up by someone with the skill. The back of the neck has some discoloration where it would be played. The body looks and feels solid, but has some serious chips and cracks in the finish. The color (I'm told) was originally white but has yellowed over the years and has some other discoloration from stickers that have been removed years ago. The pickguard is slightly warped and has a small chip in one corner. The bridge is complete but rusty and missing a few screws which attach it to the body. The electronics are an unknown. I don't have an amp or any strings to put on it. The volume and tone pots are there, one has a broken post.
Overall, if I had to grade this thing, I'd give it a 'D' but with HUGE potential for the right person.
This auction is for the US only. I will not ship anywhere else. Please don't ask.
