NGD Musicmaster

Post by Johno » Wed Dec 12, 2018 3:24 am

Belated NGD post.

Picked up a 1978 Musicmaster a few weeks back complete with original WRHB.
Always been curious about the WRHB as I never really got on with HB's but I quite like this one.
Still find myself reaching for the non existent tremolo & the neck feels slighter fatter than my other guitars but its a great sounding fun guitar. Still tinkering with the 3 saddle bridge.
Here are some pics with its SS pals!

man oh man, a musicmaster with a bigger neck and a humbucker is a dream of mine right now.

you say the neck is fatter, probably a B shape, closer to 1 5'8" ?

what issues are hoh having with the bridge?

Oh there is the single coil in the neck.... bad lighting in the pic's sorry. Plus the cover is black, maybe I should put a cream/white one on there?

My thoughts exactly. I got to play Pat's recently, and it was a killer.
