In my quest to find bridge parts for my project Bronco I ran across this 1978 Musicmaster at a good price. The body has some extra routing under the pickguard and has been painted Fiesta Red. Pickguard is a replacement and I added the Bronco knobs. Pickup and pots are all original. Plays good but needs a setup. The pickup sounds great and the neck feels nice. I've got a line on a unmolested 78 body I hope to get in the next week or so. If I'm able to get it I'll be listing this body in the classifieds.

i'm usually not a fan of red and white guitars but there is something about that musicmaster that just gets me.

That's a great looking Musicmaster! I like the Bronco knobs on there. They really give it an aggressive 70s look.

perhaps it's the fact that it looks orange?

Thanks guys, the body looks a bit more red in person. I was told that it was originally white with a black pickguard.

i wasn't trying to be a dick, but merely insinuating the prime factor that lead me to like it as well.

i hate red and white guitars. oly white jags and aged oly white strats are about all i can stand.

Well, here's how she looks now. All dressed in black. I absolutely love this guitar now. It plays great, sounds great and is my new number one guitar. I hope my 1975 Musicmaster project turns out as nice as this one.

I won't be happy until I have one of each of the Fender student models.
