    Kind of interested in getting this, but cant find anything out about this model anywhere. If it is real, what are they worth?

    Thanks in advance!

    Not at all a real Fender.....everything about it screams cheap asian import copy....even the loose nut that's sliding out.....

    The first clue is lack of truss rod surround, the 2nd is the super wide Gibson style 12th fret dot spacing. Third is the cheapo bridge and saddles....

    No. No Fender model with that specific body shape and layout has ever existed.

    I kinda like it. Fix the nut and it might be fun. I trust the price is extremely low.
     
  9. In addition, the Fender waterslide wasn't "floated" properly. The high E tuner washer partially covers the letter N.
    So many things point to a homemade parts guitar. Cheers, Barrie.

    No truss rod plug/surround, not a Fender. Looks like an Ibanez Talman variant with an after market neck and new pickguard shape.

    @Guitarmageddon said it already, but I was thinking that if it were $50 and local, I'd consider taking a look at it.

  14. Buddy could pay me $50 to take it off his hands … Pete Townsend comes to mind after that.:D
    Cheers, Barrie.

    Looks like a Fender Snotocaster to me, a very rare specimen of bogie if ever there was one. I say buy, put it in some tissue and bin it.

    I want to know where the wonder woman guitar is at. I have no interest in the green hornet.
