    From the very beginning, Leo saw that student models were a way to keep his instruments in players’ hands as they progressed. Released in June of 1956, the Musicmaster and Duo Sonics became the gateway to many aspiring guitarists.

    This guitar is in great condition. The desert sand refinish is well done, in fact so well done it fooled everyone (including the previous owner who bought it as original and advertised as such on Ebay) until it was examined internally. The guitar looks to have been several shades in the past, evident when you look in the neck pocket.

     The neck, fretboard and frets are in fantastic shape with the gloss finish of the lacquer really showcasing the maple of the neck. Being a 1960 guitar there will not be any date written.

    The plastics and hardware show some slight corrosion and the odd knock.

    The electronics are all correct, all solder joints undisturbed which is something you can do when you refin a Musicmaster. The pots are dated week 9 of 1960.

    The guitar comes with its correct hardshell case.

    Even though this is a short scale guitar (22.5”) and aimed at students, there is no doubt that these are well made instruments . The neck feels comfortable and easy to play, the no-frills nature of the electronics yields a classy tone. This guitar certainly punches above its weight.

    These guitars certainly have a unique appeal all of their own and all guitar players should try one at least once. Grab this one before it gets away.
