1967 Fender Musicmaster II Red
Posted on June 24 2020
This vintage 1967 Fender Musicmaster II electric guitar in Red finish came through the shop a few years ago. I'm always a vintage Fender guitar buyer but I especially love the electric guitars from the 1950s and 1960s. Please contact me here to sell a vintage Fender guitar.
Leo Fender introduced Musicmaster model in 1956 to fill the gap that was student level solid body guitars. While the Musicmaster and Duo-Sonic received fewer appointments than the professional grade guitars, they were made to the same high quality standards. Both models were redesigned in 1964 and received a 24" scale neck (same as the Jaguar) and popular offset waist body.
This early 1967 Fender Musicmaster II has just arrived from the son of the original owner and has survived in excellent original condition. With a neck heel date of June '66 and a pickup date of 1-13-1967, we can easily date this guitar to early 1967. All parts are original to the guitar and in good working condition. The neck pocket bears the stamp "ES" which stands for "Entered Special". The ES stamp was used on some guitars in 1966 and generally denoted some kind of special order whether it be a custom color, neck width, celebrity order, etc. This guitar conforms to the all the standard specifications for the model and year (edit: sold!)
