Reverb Estimated Used Price Range

  • $875$1,320

The Fender Musicmaster II was a short-lived transitional model during the CBS takeover that featured the same design as the original Musicmaster (a 3/4 scale student model introduced in 1956) but with a regular 25.5" scale length. 

It was only offered with one single coil pickup at the neck from the factory. Specimens are often seen with bridge pickups, however, as this is a popular model to modify. 

Years of Production: 1964 - 1969

Finish Specifications: Dakota Red was the most common Musicmaster II finish and is less desirable than Daphne Blue or Olympic White.

Unique to this Year: 1966 is often recognized as the first full year of CBS-controlled production, though CBS bought the company in January of '65.
