Fender Musicmaster (1978)

In Stock. Next Day Delivery order before 3pm

One of the very earliest from Leo’s house of tone, this vintage 1978 Fender Musicmaster is a sight to behold. Though the original model was birthed in 1956, it was in production right up to 1982, developing its own cult following and becoming deeply loved by those who played it. While some of you might think ‘that looks like a stripped-down Mustang’, the Mustang is a fancy Musicmaster, and this guitar, which was originally introduced for the student market, was a different beast. Available as both a 22.5” scale 21-fret neck and the 24” scale, 22-fret model pictured here, it’s a fabulous-feeling thing, with a Maple neck, Rosewood fingerboard and Ash body. The giant headstock so favoured towards the end of the ‘60s and deeply into the ‘70s remains very much in effect here, giving this diminutive instrument a slightly other-wordly appearance. It’s seen some changes, like the paint, but the original hardware is all there: at the body end you’ll find a neck single coil and 3-saddle back-mounted bridge, with the whole shebang controlled by a master Volume and Tone. An oddly good guitar for jazz, the Musicmaster possesses a character that’s all it’s own, even within the Fender range. Not as spiky as the Mustang or as keen as the Bronco, its genteel charm will make you fall head over heels for it, until nothing else will do. Magic! Protected by a three-year warranty with our masterful techs, this 1978 Fender Musicmaster is available at Wunjos with a gig bag as standard.
