I am trying to find out any info. on this guitar,such as original cost, materials in construction, and todays value.
It has a 3 pc. back, and the back and sides are brazilian rosewood. The soundboard is made from solid spruce and has a very tight grain pattern (15-20 lines per inch) There is no serial number inside of the body, only '1973 F-95 CUSTOM' is on the label. It is a very nice playing guitar, with tremendous timbre and sustain.
Any info. would be greatly appreciated.

1973 FENDER F-95 Acoustic

I bought my F-95 in New Orleans, La. in 1979, when I bought my Martin D28. The music store had the Fender on their used rack. They wanted $350.00 for it, but I worked them down to $200.00, due to a slight string buzz when playing an 'open' Em.
I did some small neck adjustment and replaced the saddle (leaving it a bit taller than the worn original), which totally eliminated the buzz.
I am surprised to this day as to the amount of low end bass that this guitar produces...as well as how balanced the tone is across the string range (highs/ mids/ lows)
The timbre and sustain is comperable to guitars in a much higher price range.(Martin/Guild/Gibson) as well as the action, intonation, and playability. I do a good bit of fingerpicking, and this guitar has yet to dissappoint.....
Love the 3 piece back and overall asthetics.
Not a huge Fender acoustic fan...but this one is definitely a keeper.....

: I can add that the top is not solid spruce but is in fact a laminate - at elast in the early 70's models.
