Re: Fender Bullet

I bought a 1981 Fender bullet just for the neck. About a year ago I purchaced a 2004 fender tele body, coplete with all hardware, cheap off of ebay, and needed to find a neck. Everywhere I looked I was discovering that the bullet neck is the ideal telecastor neck, as I could not find one for under $400.00 US for just the neck...it was crazy. Then I came across a bullet with a good neck, with some nice flames in the wood grain, except the owner had butchered the body (think really bad green and beige camo-spray paint...probably tremclad, gross). So I was able to purchace the entire guitar for cheap, and I slapped the neck on my 2004 tele...frig, its beautiful!!! Such a nice neck!!

I guess the moral of the story is...You could get a pretty penny for just your bullet neck if you wanted...AND if you know anyone who wants a bad camo paint job bullet body w/hardware...let me know....OR just the hardware...its all in working condition...minus the neck of course ;)

rock on, etc etc...

I have a bullet neck on a telecaster body, but it just doesn't feel right. The neck is straight, but the heel of the neck seems to sit low in the pocket of the body.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

As far as I know all f model guitars were japanese made. F models were produced late 70s early 80s. In excellent condition they are worth $250 to $300 (cdn) tops.
The older ones were adjusted at the top of the head stock, the early 80s adjusted at the base of the neck.

SRV Strat Dating

I need help dating an SRV strat. The serial number has the SE9 + 5 digits listed. I researched the net and found that a signature series with this number should be a 1989 model but I am pretty sure that the SRV strats did not come out until a couple years later. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Late 60's early 70's music master

I have a music master that I am going to have to sacrifice. Does anyone know what a better than average one goes for on the vintage market? This one has a stainless steel pick-guard and is brown in color with a maple neck. Any input is extremely appreciated.

Re: Late 60's early 70's music master

I just bought a '61 at an average retail music store for $450--the finish is completely chewed here and there, but otherwise in good shape.

50th Anniversary strats

I'm confused - I thought that Fenders 50th Anniv strats were produced in 1996 with only 1250 (ish?) made, all with sunburst finish, gold parts, 50 plate on neck bolts etc. My buddy has produced a cream one (no gold but with a metal 50th badge inset on back of headstock) and checking the US adverts ,lots of others appear in lists of all colours. Was there lots of colours or a second "less exclusive" run or am i just hopelessly confused ?
Tom

Re: 50th Anniversary strats

I happened to work at a Fender dealer in 1996. Here is the answer you seek:

There were 2500 50th Anniversary American Strats produced in 1996. They have the gold hardware you mentioned, etc., and are conspicuously numbered on the neckplate as "#### of 2500"; likewise, 1250 similar Teles were produced, numbered the same way. These are the "true" anniversary models.

Pratically every other guitar Fender produced in 1996, including Squiers, Standard Series, and Americans, displayed the metallic sticker commemorating Fender's 50th anniversary. There is nothing special about these guitars, other than the fact that they were made in 1996, the year that Fender turned 50.

Many people advertise "50th Anniversary Strat/Tele" on their guitars, but unless it is the American, gold hardware, numbered neckplate version, it "ain't the real deal". I know, I was lucky enough to find one, which is neatly tucked away until their 100th anniversary in 2046!

Take Care,

Andy

Re: 50th Anniversary strats

I also have one of the limited editions and it is still in mint condition, still has the plastic covering on the pickguard. Any idea what these are worth.
thanks

Re: 50th Anniversary strats

I can't really help you any, but I was wondering the same thing. I purchased an american made Strat on ebay. It has the 50th anniversary gold sticker on the back of the headstock, but everything else is absolutely normal. It has a sunburst finish and the serial number's first digits are N5 would this not mean it was made in '95 rather than '96. The sticker is in perfect condition, so I don't think any body peeled it off something and stuck it on there to make me pay more.

I know the 50th anniversary limited editions have gold parts. Were there 50th anniversary ones produced with nothing special, but a nifty sticker?

telecaster

Rumor? My father had a fender telecaster with an extremely low serial number on it. He purchased it around the San Francisco area in the early 50's. He said it was made for a guy in the symphony that needed an extra long neck and requested it be made from fender. The guitar was not ready when the guy needed it so he purchased another guitar. My father said he was able to buy this one at a great price. He was tall (6'4") so he really liked the extra long neck. Anybody with any info regarding early serial numbers?

Re: telecaster

I used to buy guitars with the sole purpose of following them for a hundred miles, stamping on it's proposterously minute head and shagging the neck hole with my intensely erect lubed shaft. YES!
