    Fender Musicmaster-

    All original electronics, custom British Racing Green color; professionally refinished by Specimen Products which wasn't cheap.

    Some wear and tear, a few chips in the finish, small ding in neck that doesn't affect play-ability but I photographed it. The body was drilled at one point for a bigsby bridge. This was taken off and the original bridge installed. It left holes in the body so I filled them and block sanded the body. I sent it off to paint and they told me my prep work on the holes was going to leave them a little shallow looking unless they spent another $100 tweaking it, I said spray it as I was already getting deep into this project money wise. As you can see if you look closely you can see the holes, big deal in my opinion I had to get close and use flash to display them. The nut was recently replaced and the whole guitar set up. It is a nicely cut nut and was done because the guitar was strung left, there is a extra strap pin on the lower horn other then that no weird stuff was done when it was played left just those 2 mods, the original nut had been flipped when it was used lefty but it was so worn out I just replaced it.

    Its a sweet guitar and I really have enjoyed having it. The neck is fantastic and very clean as you can see.

    This isn't a 60s fender strat so there is no value destroyed with a refinish , if anything it makes it worth more but I priced it at what a plain jane black one goes for, which this use to be. This is a vintage guitar you can tweak and not worry about slashing the resale value as musicmasters are not collectibles.

    This a players guitar, but it was never abused. I doubt there is a better playing musicmaster out there, this plays effortlessly The original cases on these are extremely hard to find,most have been destroyed and its a shortscale guitar so strat cases done work. One in this shape is worth over $150 its clean and has the fender logo still intact.

    This is who refinished it

    This is a total bass players guitar because it has a thick neck that makes it not feel so foreign to my hands.

    $650 Shipped CONUS

    Am I not seeing a price? I read through this several times but my eyes aren't what they used to be.

    I am going to be out of town for 3 weeks from July 10th to August 1st, I can ship anything that sells the 8th and 9th before leaving town on the 10th.

    In order to have less crap to store and deal with when I get back I am willing to take 10% off everything posted above, if sold and shipped before I go, once I go the stuff can ship for 3 weeks and the price goes back up
