The guitar pictured is the actual guitar you will receive! 

At The Farm, we take actual pictures of each instrument and make sure they are fully set-up and ready to play before we ship them. Each instrument goes through a multi-point inspection, followed by a set-up process by our in-house tech staff. We then photograph each instrument with high-quality equipment in our on-site photography studio. We know that details like wood grain and color finishes can vary, so we want you to be able to see, to the best of our ability, exactly what you will be receiving. 

This process takes over an hour for each instrument - from inspection to pictures. We care about the instrument we put into your hands! Rest assured your guitar was not just plucked off of a shelf and drop-shipped to you from a warehouse without care. 

Just in on trade! This vintage 1978 Fender Musicmaster came through the doors from the original owner, who kept this guitar in great condition.

Featuring a Northern Ash body with a bolt-on Maple neck and a simple single-coil pickup configuration, this guitar comes straight out of the 70's with all of the vintage tone and feel that is coveted by so many players. 

Originally introduced as a beginner instrument, the Musicmaster grew to become a coveted instrument that and known for attracting players looking for nostalgic appearances with professional appointments; even Rory Gallagher was known for combining a Musicmaster neck on the similarly appointed "Duo Sonic". 

Built in 1978, this all-original guitar has a top-mounted bridge with 3 saddles that can easily adjust intonation and string height, and the Fender branded tuners, which function perfectly and hold a solid tune.

The C shaped neck features a 24" short scale with a 7.25" radius and 22 frets and is extremely comfortable, enjoyable to play and feels like a truly classic instrument. 

Topped off with a classic Black finish, a 3-ply black pickguard, chrome hardware and a classic "F" stamped backplate. 

Included is the original Fender Owner's Manual and the original hardshell case pictured, allowing you to continually keep this guitar safe and in spectacular condition.
