Cosmetic Condition:  Cool vibe & a really nice player's grade vintage guitar.  Various nicks, chips, dents & dings; surface scratches, weather checking & play wear.  The body has been completely stripped of its original finish & now has a natural, satin look to it.  The neck has been refretted with medium jumbos & has a new nut as well.  Overall the guitar has a great look to it & plays great!

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.
