I bought this super cool player’s grade Musicmaster as one of my first vintage guitars years ago from Thunder Road guitars. It is an amazing little guitar and the neck, in particular, is stellar. The body was obviously stripped of the desert sand paint and refinished at some point in its distant past, but I think it looks really cool and I haven’t had to worry about keeping it perfect. That said, it is in very good condition with only a few dents and such, please look at the pictures carefully.

The neck is pencil dated to 1957 and both pots are original. Frets are in good shape, never been a buzzing issue The pickup is a 70s era mustang with the original pickup cover. It sounds great, really cuts through and sings. The original tuners were replaced due to crumbling, and I have them somewhere around. I will find and include but no guarantee. They are in pretty rough shape. The upside is that the guitar stays in tune like a champ!

The hard shell case is original and in nice condition. Vintage Guitar did a full article on these guitars not long ago and they seem to be increasing in value. I mean, there aren’t too many 1950s Fenders within reach financially, particularly sweet ones like this.
