Description
You're looking at a Fender Marauder Pawn Shop guitar in blue. This guitar is in very nice condition. Just a really cool guitar that I wish I could keep. The Triplebucker bridge pickup is just one of its features. Sounds killer. Jazzmaster neck pickup--what a combo. Offset body, body contour on back. Great feeling neck. A tremolo that actually stays in tune when you use it. Great set of features on a 7 pound, 3 ounce guitar. Almost perfect condition. One tiny mark on the edge. These guitars have been discontinued by Fender. Get one while you can. No case or tremolo bar. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking.

Manufacturer Info
The Fender Modern Player Marauder heralds the encore of a near-mythical guitar of the '60s. If you're looking for a distinctive Fender, the Marauder is it. You get a comfortable offset-waist body, a fast C-shaped neck capped with a 9.5"-radius rosewood 'board and jumbo frets, and a vintage-style trem. The electronics are the kicker: a Jazzmaster pickup in the neck position serves up sweet single-coil chime, while a Fender Triplebucker at the bridge (yes, it's got three coils) spews out a pyroclastic surge of white-hot molten tone.

Guitar Setup
My setup on guitars includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. I spray out any pots that are noisy. I turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. I don't claim to be a trained luthier, but I'm able to set guitars/basses for a reasonable out-of-box experience and have had very few complaints. If you're looking for the perfect setup on a used guitar, please expect to take it to a trained luthier who is familiar with your individual playing style and preferences. ps: basses get the same setup minus the new strings. Thanks!

Packing
I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.

Fender Modern Player Marauder at a Glance:
Unique body
Unique electronics
Unique value

Unique body
The Modern Player Marauder has an offset-waist contoured body. There's something incredibly playable about Fender's offset-waist instruments (Jaguar, Jazzmaster, and of course, the Jazz Bass). First of all, when seated with the guitar on your right thigh (if you're a righty), the design shifts the business end of the axe over to the left, so you're addressing the instrument pretty much straight-on. And playing in a standing position, you get the same comfortable playability. Our spines are forever indebted to Leo Fender for this slick innovation.

Unique electronics
The Fender Modern Player Marauder has to have the most unusual electronics we've seen in a long while. For rhythm work, nothing beats a single-coil in the neck position. In the Marauder, a Jazzmaster pickup handles these duties flawlessly, giving you chimey spank and sparkle that's warmer than a Strat, but without any loss of clarity. For take-no-prisoners lead tone, Fender's stationed a rare beast at the bridge. The Fender Triplebucker is a pit bull of a pickup. With three coils, you get thick, snarling output that's probably illegal in several states. A 5-way blade situated in the lower bout serves up the expected pickup combinations (including a drop-dead gorgeous 50/50 blend), plus a couple of very tasty coil-splits. Fender's Modern Player Marauder is a serious tone machine. And so affordable!

Unique value
It's hard to think of the Fender Modern Player Marauder as an "entry-level" instrument. Throughout its history, Fender has always made a point of welcoming new players to the fold by offering high-quality, affordable entry-level instruments such as the Duo-Sonic, Mustang and Musicmaster - all with beaucoup style, great tone, and awesome playability. The Modern Player series continues this great tradition, giving you modern features and fresh, unconventional takes on selected classic Fender instruments.
