About this guitar:

Built in Fender's USA Fullerton plant during their CBS era, this guitar is certainly unique in its looks. Clearly having seen lots of playing/stage time, the guitar's finish has been worn and chipped away in areas of regular contact. The finish also has lots of checking in areas, as you'd expect for the age and cosmetic condition. The gloss finish on the neck doesn't suffer from the same wear and only has a few small dings/marks higher up the neck although these don't hinder playability. This guitar is also unique in that it's part of a small batch that has a darker/redder finish on the face of the headstock. 

Condition: Vintage Player Grade  Weight: 7.9lbs

It's evident this guitar has seen a lot of use, which in combination with its age lead to its very worn look. There are however no noticeable marks or blemishes that would hinder playability or the overall feel. This gives the opportunity to own a vintage guitar without worrying about taking it anywhere. It's a vintage guitar that seen countless hours on stage and should continue to do so. 

No breaks, fully checked and authenticated by us.
