What makes this guitar special:  100% original & previously owned by Bernard "Buddy Blue" Seigal, former member of Southern California rock band The Beat Farmers.  The Beat Farmers formed in San Diego in 1983 & enjoyed a cult following into the early '90s.  Their music has been described as an amalgamation of cow punk, jangle pop, roots rock, hard-twang Americana, country rock, rockabilly & swamp rock.  The name Beat Farmers is stenciled on the outside of the case that goes with the guitar. 

Cosmetic Condition:  Great shape for its age with a cool vintage vibe - various minor nicks, chips, dents & dings; surface scratches, light buckle rash & some weather checking.  Overall the guitar has a wonderful look with a gorgeous patina.

Neck:  Slender profile maple neck with nicely aged cream binding & black side-dots.  Rosewood fingerboard with mother of pearl block inlays.  Frets show some wear, but have plenty of life in them.  F-tuners are in perfect working condition.  The word SPECIAL is pressed into the back of the headstock between the tuners.  1 5/8" nut width; 25 1/2" scale length.  Neck is straight for the most part & truss rod is in good working condition.  Neck stamp reads 14 FEB 67 B.

Body:  Double-bound, hollow maple body with bound F-holes.  Trapeze tailpiece with F logo badge.  Adjustable bridge with barrel saddles.  5-ply gold pickguard is in great shape with no cracks.  Guitar weighs 6 lbs 9.7 oz.

Pickups:  Fender embossed single coil pickups.  Bridge - 10.42K ohms; Neck - 10.64K ohms.  Dual volume & tone controls with 3-way toggle switch.  The rhythm pickup tone knob has a small chip in it, but all electronics are in perfect working condition.

Case:  Original Victoria hardshell case included.  Years on the road have knocked it around somewhat - it's a bit rough around the edges & shows quite a bit of wear & tear.  The handle was replaced & a portion of the top & back are a bit loose, but really for the most part the case is pretty sturdy & serves its purpose well. 

Why We Love Fender

It's hard to find a name more synonymous with guitars than Fender. Ever since Leo Fender burst onto the scene with his now-iconic Telecaster, Fender guitars have found homes in the hands of brand new guitar players and seasoned rock stars. When the headstock says Fender, you know you're getting a quality instrument.
