Insane unexpected NGD! Early Fender Custom (Maverick)

Post by Pacafeliz » Sat Jun 06, 2020 2:32 am

Well i SWEAR I was not on the hunt or with the intention of buying another vintage Fender. Especially since I have one of these already... kinda.

Same same but different. :P

But I just could NOT not get it at that price... :blush:
Just needs some smaller stuff done.

...what is It?! :ph34r:

Amazing how the red has faded out over the decades, huh?

Can't think of a reason why the he'll someone would cut off the top of the pickup covers :fp:

Does anyone here have a lead to new/fitting ones?
XII or Mustang Bass ones are the same ones, right?

Curtis Novak can probably hook you up w some. I think he's doing basically all permutations of these covers now (XII, Mustang, various RI, etc).

Wow Pat, you've done it again. You have obtained the unobtainable.

Now you have both versions of the decal as well. Custom and Maverick.

Were you looking for another or did it just pop up?

Well now I have finished... and a head ache. Could be the sanding or the drinks from last night.

Anyway... the finest sand paper I have here is 320 so this is not shiny at all now :( do you think I can polish it with finer one - I'd get that next week.

The guard is pretty damn shrunk and warped, so I'll put it on fast now.

Oh btw... It has the ES stamp too!

MUCH BETTER! 😅

BUT SHIT of course I forgot to put the alu shield in before! :fp: but oh well... I'll open her up again soon enough. Gotta check the wiring cuz I think there's something not quite right.

And good news regarding the pup covers:

Image
From that site in the UK that sells the pair for £6 or so! Fingers crossed!
