1968 Fender Palomino Acoustic - Natural
1968 Fender Palomino Acoustic - Natural incl. case
Rare 1968 Fender Palomino Acoustic in Natural finish. Fender started their acoustic guitars in 1962, desiged by then new employee Roger Rossmeisl. The Palomino is a little less fancy than the top-of-the-line model "Kingman" with single-play instead of multiply binding but it still has a solid top and an mahogany dreadnought body with the aluminum support rod thru body, which was typical for Fenders acoustic guitars back then. The guitar has seen a lot and is really "road-worn" but it has no wood cracks or hidden repairs. The tuners have been replaced. It plays like butter and sounds really really good. Maybe because it's been played so excessively. The neck is basically a 68 Stratocaster neck, mounted on an acoustic guitar. Comes in non original hardcase.
