About This Listing

From 1972 to 1981 the Fender 'F' Series Classic guitars were made at the Matsuoka factory in Japan.

5 models: FC-10 (3/4), FC-10, FC-20, FC-30 and FC-40. The last two were the concert line. You cannot date these guitars by the serial number because they are not chronological.

I am very surprised by the quality of both the craftmanship AND the big and rich sound. I get more and more respect for the skills of these japanese constructors.

I bought it august 2021 from the first owner, a Danish lady who bought it new in England around 1981. She has taken better care about it than played it: Almost no superficial inperfections.

Overall length 99 cm.   Body length 48.3 cm.   Upper/lower bout 27.7 cm/36.7 cm.  Body thickness 9.8-10.2 cm.  Body volume ≈ 15.6 liter.  Body frequence Ab-A.  Mensur 65.2cm.   Nut width 52.0 mm.   Current action 2.0 mm❗️ –  but I will gladly raise it for you 📐.  With Knocloch CX 300 ADC strings.  

Comes with an excellent HSC.
