Early 1960″s Fender Concert Acoustic
Fender’s first run at acoustics can be best described as having a full mix of Fender and Rickenbacker-style appointments.
Noticeable Fender features include the Strat-style headstocks, maple bolt-on necks and an adjustable truss rod. Features borrowed from Rossmeisl’s time at Rickenbacker included checkered binding and gold Lucite pickguards.
Fender’s acoustics had a unique bracing system that was designed to greatly increase the structural support of the guitar so the actual top could be built thinner. Also, the bridge had an extreme moustache and individual saddles to aid in intonation.
This guitar is on consignment at DHR.
