First introduced in 1956 alongside the twin pickup Dup Sonic model, the Fender Musicmaster was the companies designated student guitar, with a shorter 22 1/2" scale length and stripped back, single pickup design. Unlike the Duo Sonic, which underwent some changes over the years, the Musicmaster was consistent in terms of its spec throughout the ‘50s and ‘60s, with only the finish options changing. The shorter scale design and single neck pickup tone have made the Musicmaster a popular choice over the years, and a relatively affordable entry point in to vintage guitars from Fender's golden era.
This 1967 Musicmaster is a fantastic example, and is in all original condition. This guitar features a slab Alder body and maple neck with Rosewood fingerboard. The neck stamp is fairly worn, with 66 slightly visible and the month hard to make out. The original pots are present and correct, and this guitar features an original black bottom single coil pick-up in the neck position. The pearl pickguard, 'F' stamped tuners, threaded saddle top loading bridge and all other hardware are also original and in great condition.
The original red lacquer finish shows plenty of lacquer checking but only minimal play wear, and is in generally very good condition. This guitar also includes its original grey tolex hard case.
As with all vintage instruments, this 1967 Fender Musicmaster has been given a full service and appraisal by the Vintage Instrument Workshop, and includes a 3 year warranty.
