Here's a guitar you don't see every day, a Fender King acoustic. Predecessor to the Kingman, this early model was made from 1963 to 1966, this example being from the first year of production.
This particular King had a Dearmond pickup added, likely decades ago. The add resulted in a trimming of the pickguard and addition of an output jack.
The guitar plays well, the truss rod was checked and is functional. The pickup has some value on its own, but really is a cool and era appropriate add to this guitar.
Comes with a pretty weak gig bag. I will ship the guitar appropriately to make sure it arrives safe and sound nonetheless.
