Fender / Musicmaster / 1959 / Desert Sand / Guitar For Sale

A 1959 Fender Musicmaster anyone?

From the beginnings of the company, Leo had seen that student models were a way to keep his instruments in players’ hands as they progressed. Released in June of 1956, the Musicmaster and Duo Sonics became the gateway to many an aspiring guitarist.

This guitar is in stunning condition. The desert sand finish is almost entirely free of any serious damage, retaining a satin sheen. The neck, fretboard and frets are in equally fantastic shape with the gloss finish of the lacquer really showcasing the maple of the neck. The pencil neck date shows March 1959.

The plastics and hardware hardly show any real sign of  the passing of time, the anodized pickguard being a standout feature of these earlier examples. 

As you’d expect, the electronics are all correct, all solder joints undisturbed. The pots are dated week 25 of 1958.

Nice C profile neck and with a weight of a mere 2.77Kg this is not going to break anyone's back..!

The guitar comes with its correct hardshell case.

Even though this is a short scale guitar (22.5”) and aimed at students, there is no doubt that these are well made instruments . The neck feels comfortable and easy to play, the no-frills nature of the electronics yields a classy tone. This guitar certainly punches above its weight.

These guitars certainly have a unique appeal all of their own and all guitar players should try one at least once. Grab this one before it gets away.
