1966 FENDER ELECTRIC 12 STRING-ORIGINAL OWNER 58 YEARS! INCLUDES ORIGINAL CASE, ORIGINAL FENDER BLACK STRAP AND ORIGINAL FENDER CATALOG 1968


A LITTLE HISTORY FIRST - I AM THE ORIGINAL OWNER OF THIS FENDER ELECTRIC 12 STRING. I WENT IN ON IT WITH MY OLDER BROTHER. HE WAS 15 AND I WAS 12 AT THE TIME. I HAD A PAPER ROUTE AND SOME BIRTHDAY MONEY SAVED AND HE WAS CUTTING GRASS AND SHOVELING SNOW FOR IT. WE PAID AROUND $425. WITH THE HARD SHELL CASE AT THAT TIME $58. MY BROTHER QUICKLY LOST INTEREST IN IT AFTER A YEAR AND I BOUGHT HIM OUT FOR $100. IN 1968. WE SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN A STRAT, BUT THE BIRDS WERE PLAYING TURN TURN TURN AND HE WANTED A 12 STRING. WE BOUGHT IT AT ART LEWIS MUSIC STORE IN MINEOLA NEW YORK ON MINEOLA BLVD. THEY ARE STILL OPEN TODAY IN A DIFFERENT LOCATION RUN BY THEIR SON, BRIAN.
THE GUITAR HAS BEEN UNDER MY BED AND HANGING ON MY WALL IN MY HOUSES FOR YEARS. IT'S NEVER BEEN IN FOR SERVICE TO BE SET UP. ANY ADJUSTMENTS ON IT ARE THE WAY THEY LEFT THE FACTORY. IT'S ACTUALLY THE FIRST GUITAR I'M SELLING. THE NECK SEEMS STRAIGHT. IT HAS SOME CHIPS ON IT AND ARM WEAR. I TOOK A LOT OF PICTURES FOR YOU ALL TO SEE. I NEVER REMOVED THE NECK TO SEE THE ACTUAL DATE STAMPED ON IT. I BELIEVE WE BOUGHT IT IN LATE 1966 0R EARLY 1967. I DIDN'T WANT TO UPSET ANY FACTORY SETTINGS OR SHIMS. THE ORIGINAL POTTS HAVE THE TYPICAL CRACKLING AND NEEDS TO BE CLEANED OUT. I'M SELLING IT BECAUSE I NEVER USE IT. IT JUST HANGS ON MY WALL. I ALSO HAVE THE ORIGINAL FENDER GUITAR STRAP WHICH I HAD TO CUT DOWN BECAUSE IT HUNG TOO LOW ON ME AT 12. I ALSO HAVE AN ORIGINAL FENDER CATALOG FOR 1968. I NEVER THOUGHT I HAVE THIS GUITAR AT 67 YEARS OLD. OTHER THAN THE CRACKLING, IT PLAYS LIKE IT DID WHEN I FIRST GOT IT. SAME GUITAR USED BY JIMMY PAGE IN THE RECORDING OF STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN! IF YOU'D LIKE MORE INFO IT'S BEST TO CALL ME. MY NAME IS GERRY. THANK YOU! show contact info Sunburst color Watch Jimmp Page play his Stairway to heaven guitar years later and Johnny winter play his at Woodstock 1969. Copy and paste-
