Up for sale, a 1989 Moon Reggae Master T-style electric guitar in exceptional condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original Moon-branded gigbag. For decades, Moon has crafted highly regarded, quality boutique instruments exclusively for the Japanese market. Introduced in 1981, the Reggae Master was ahead of its time, featuring a pair of soapbar P-90 pickups, mahogany body, figured maple neck with slab rosewood fretboard, and gold hardware. The guitar delivers a natural midrange bark and treble cut, channeled through the P-90 pickups with great definition and glassy note attack. The guitar is lightweight and lively at 7lbs 7oz, offering sparkling cleans and snarly, focused overdrive. This Moon has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, accurate intonation, and low action.

The maple neck has a rounded medium C shaped profile with moderate shoulder and lightly rolled fretboard edges, measuring .835” deep at the 1st fret and .870” at the 12th. The slab rosewood fretboard features mini pearl dot inlay and stock slender fretwire. The frets are in great shape with good height and meat, showing a hint of wear exclusively beneath the plain strings on the crowns of frets 1-3, and virtually no wear further up the fretboard. The guitar plays cleanly in every register up the straight neck with an ideally adjusted and responsive truss rod. Measurements familiar to any Tele fan, the scale length is 25 1/2“, and the stock brass nut measures 1 5/8“ in width, ensuring ideal treble cut. The headstock features Moon's waterslide decal and Kluson-style double-line Moon Deluxe-branded tuners which turn smoothly and hold pitch well.

On the body, the electronics work as they should, with a three-way pickup selector toggle and Master Volume and Tone controls governing the stock pair of P90 pickups. The original full-size Japanese pots date to February of 1989. The cream pickup covers are branded with the Moon name, while the four-bolt neck plate and six-saddle Strat-style bridge are both embossed with the Moon name and show uniform patina through the gold plating. Plastics include a white pearloid pickguard and Gibson-style switch surround. Cosmetic wear on the body is limited to a touched-up finish chip on the back bass-side waist. The neck profile sports a pristine smooth gloss finish.

The original Moon-branded gigbag is included.
