Vintange Fender Bronco Electric guitar

I'm quite new to all this, but isnt that something like a Duosonic boby on a Bronco neck?

yeah very weird eh. looks sort of like a cyclone pickguard. I think it's a heavily modified Bronco. I'd like to see what's going on under that pickguard though. it's really not worth the $1k BIN at all.

The bridge is also nothing like that of a Bronco, so got me stumped.

yeah, someone seriously modified this thing. that's why I'm saying it's really not worth that much. I would say prolly $400 tops.

the "butt" of the guitar looks a bit weird to me. Like the lower offset curve looks way too drastic.
Maybe this is a home made job?

just noticed this.
it looks way off any sort of shortscale curve ive ever seen. maybe a home job. maybe someone just took something they already had and decided it needed more curvez.

I think it's a refin'd slab body MM or Duo II body, 64-69? or whatever years that would be, with a bronco neck and then a strat hardtail along with a home made pickguard. The case matches the Duo II style too.

yep i saw this too. It is so far from being a legitimate Fender Bronco and has no description of what has happened to it. The $600 starting bid is already too high, it seems.

i am still baffled by this whole thing. it's got to be a duo-sonic or musicmaster, because:

A) it's string through, so if it's a bronco or a mustang, the trem routes have been filled.
B) it's not contoured, so it can't be a cyclone (plus strat trem route)
C) that pickguard sucks ass
D) fuck

EDIT: shit, i totally skipped over jamesnye the sci guy's post:
