Dave's Guitars Charlotte is proud to offer another vintage Fender offset—this time, a shortscale Musicmaster with tons of mojo in classic Black—and for those looking for vintage Fender tone and playability, look no further!

These retro, funky hipster guitars have been attracting a lot of attention recently and are still very affordable to players of all budgets. Original case and electronics—what more could you want?

This Musicmaster reeks playability. Smooth, fast neck and fretboard make for an easy-to-play couch strummer that doubles as a punk rocker when plugged in. Perfect for Pavement or Silver Jews type of stuff in my opinion.

The only modification I see is the beveled pickguard to allow access to truss rod adjusting; in fact, it doesn't appear the truss rod was ever adjusted this way, leading me to believe the original owner began beveling it and stopped when he realized what he was doing.

Comes with its original red-lined hardshell case in super clean condition.

Being picky, its cosmetic condition is 7/10–yes, there are are scratches, dings, and signs of usage over the past several decades. This is a used guitar.
