FENDER 1957 MUSICMASTER Vintage 57 USA Electric Guitar 22.5" Short Scale 20322

Sale price $999 Regular price


Nice little slice of USA Fender guitar history. 

Up for sale is this 1957 Fender Musicmaster in creme finish. This baby seems to have some history. Scale is 22.5". It's not all original but it's a great little guitar. First, what I believe is original are the pickup, bridge, pickguard, and all electronics. Body and neck are original but a previous owner added a rear body contour and refinish to the body. Also, according to writing on the heel of the neck (see pics below), the neck was re-done in 1972. I would guess that means a full re-fret and refinish of the neck. Also, they added 70s-period tuners and 70s style watermark to the headstock. This is my guess from the note on heel that says "ReMfg 6-72, Orig 9-57," along with someone's last name. I take that to mean they re-manufactured the neck in June of 72, using the original neck from Sept 1957. The guitar plays and sounds good though buyer may want it set up to their own specs. Weight is 5 pounds, 9 ounces. Ask any questions BEFORE buying. No case. thanks.
