Here is a body straight out of early 54. Fenders first guitars are a little different this year. Harder contours and a softer tummy cut. They were still tweaking this guitar for a couple of years into production. Made by hand these guitars were different just based on who was sanding routing and finishing.
This guitar is a featherweight. 3lbs 9oz. It features an ultra thinskin finish and the lacquer has sunken right into the grain lines. Light checking and lacquer crazing. Aged and ready for the neck of your choice.
