Pickups/Hardware: Kluson Deluxe Tuners. Original bridge pickup and 1964 volume and tone controls. The neck pickup is a "Gibson" embossed, early 70s humbucker. (rated at 7.4 kOhms in the neck and 6.1 k in the bridge)There is an added 3-way toggle switch and added on/off/volume pot added on the lower horn. This added pot turns the neck pickup on and off and controls its volume. The 3-way toggle switch selects the bridge pickup when it is in the middle position. The bridge pickup is off in either of the other positions. The original volume and tone controls only affect the bridge pickup.
Cosmetic Condition: The vintage vibes that this Musicmaster is putting out are hard to overlook. The red sparkle refin job is great and doesn’t take away from the aging of the guitar. There is checking throughout the front, back and sides of the body, as well as some small dents. None of the finish is missing. There is a small fleck of a white paint on the back of the bass side horn. The pickguard has yellowed over time but has no stress cracks or damage. The neck of the guitar shows signs of wear in the form of dents. There is lacquer wear on the neck where it meets the body and the headstock. The headstock has some light checking and edge wear. This ’64 Musicmaster has tons of vintage vibe and is a real head-turner, so don’t sleep on it!
Playability: The strings are nice and low, play great, and ring out clearly across the board.
Modifications/Repairs: The guitar has been routed for a humbucker pickup in the neck position. There is an added pot on the lower horn and an added 3-way toggle. The body has been refinished with red sparkle.
