I'm starting to make regular trips to the San Francisco Bay Area from my hometown of Chico to meet with customers.  Chico is just a few hours away.  We're used to making the trip, but it does seem that people there feel that we're really, really far away.  So, if you live in the North Bay in particular, watch our social media feeds.  I'll post there when I'm headed that way, and I'll bring things you'd like to check out.

My latest trip resulted in a trade with a really nice guy from the East Bay.  He came over to San Rafael to check out a 60s Fender Mustang, and we made our deal that brought this Nocaster to the site.

This is a really nice guitar! 

They called these NOS (new old stock) because these guitars bypassed the relic process and left the factory as a new-looking guitar.  This one still looks as it mush have when it left Fender.  Frets show little wear.  There are no repairs or issues with the guitar.  There has been a light touch of soldering work that currently has the guitar set up to have the usual volume control, and the tone pot blends between the two pickups.  We can revert this back to the standard Tele setup if you like.

Being a Nocaster it has a chunky neck, which many of us love.  If you like slim necks this isn't for you! 

The guitar is all original and comes with all the original paperwork.  Despite being so clean, the case does show wear - see the pics.
