We love the top and the “M” tailpiece on this 1958 Magnatone Mark III Deluxe from Blue Moon Music. Guitarlington 2015.
A lefty 1962 Fender Stratocaster in Olympic White and a ’58 Strat with blond finish.
With the exception of a few Kalamazoo-built prototypes or one-offs in circulation, all Heritage 80s were made in the Nashville plant between 1980 and ’82. These have a unique sharp and wide cutaway at the horn, Grover kidney tuners, and an eight-digit serial number with four-digit number beneath it. There does not appear to be any pattern to the second four-digit number – it was used for marketing reasons to distinguish these guitars as limited editions by Bruce Bolen, then head of R&D.
