1976 Fender Musicmaster all original?

Post by Twang » Wed Aug 15, 2018 12:19 pm

I'm going to check out this guitar this weekend. The seller said someone came by and thought the neck might be a replacement. It looks totally original to me but I thought I'd get opinions.. Thanks!

Looks all original to me! Very nice condition too with very little yellowing of the finish. Nice find...

I would say by the look of the tuner ferrules and string retainer, it looks legit to me. And shiny! The body seems to be in a similar condition, too. Not especially 'unmatching.'

Looks like a special guitar waiting for the right daddy.

I don't see anything suspicious. Nitro on the front of the headstock, poly back/neck?

Not sure if this helps you out, but CME has one, you can use the photos to compare the differences. I am fairly confident in CME's research before they sale.

I own a few old Musicmasters and this all looks legit to me. If it’s a good price jump on it!
