    I will do a review. I played it for an hour today and it’s a really fantastic guitar. It’s all original. I bought it from Lawman Guitar Shop and the attached link is the actual guitar. It also sounds fantastic through a distorted amp. Lawman was fantastic.

    Very nice and congrats. I almost bought a 50s Musicmaster back in early 1991. It had extra pickups, so I passed and bought an early Mexi Strat instead. Ten years later I bought a 73 Musicmaster for $75. Still have it and sounds great. I wish it were a 57 like your's though.

    I was thinking something similar today. When I bought my first new guitar in the late 70s as a kid, I could not afford any new fender. None. I bought a Univox Hi Flier, black with humbuckers and an adult friend of the family negotiated price to about 90 bucks with case. I could have gotten a 60s strat used for a couple hundred and 50s Musicmaster for less than the Univox all day long. I remember seeing 60s Marshall heads beat to fuck in used section of stores and nobody wanted them. If I only had a crystal ball. The Univox turned out to be a fun guitar and I wore that thing out. Sold it while in college to pay the paper boy. I thought it was toast. It was naturally relic’d. Today if I had it would be one of my coolest guitars.

    Sweet. I love those little guitars, never shoulda let my '60 Duo Sonic go, they really sound like a vintage Strat. Screenshot_2020-11-24-16-39-09-1.png

    Nice! You can still find one but the prices are going up steady. The build quality is incredible.

    Yep, every bit as good as a Tele or Strat. Look at Bloomfield's, he's played that thing to death.
