This is a Fender Triple 8 Custom Non Pedal Steel Guitar, dated 9-53. The Serial Number Is 9642, Which Means Absolutely Nothing In The 1950s Fender Steel Guitar World! This steel is a PROJECT, as she endured the Hurricane Harvey flood waters in August 2017.
I was going to give her an overhaul but I simply don't have time, so I need to sell this steel to fund a different steel in current working condition. I pulled the tuning pans to provide photos of the underside of them, and of the pan wells. All-Original Legs, Tuning Pans, Trapezoid Pickups, Hardware, Pots, and Chrome Dome Knobs. Was'Born' White Blonde But Had A Bad Refinish Job Some Time Back; The Previous Owner Sprayed Poly On The Pickups, Which Can Easily Be Removed With Lacquer Thinner.
Due To The Flood Waters, Some Seams Have Separated; You May Choose To Re-Glue Them As The Are, Or Steam The Pieces Apart To Create All-New Glue Joints. The Pots And Switch Might Be Toast.
As Is Common In These Old Fenders With The'Lollipop' Tuning Keys, The Tuning Pans Have Some Slipping Keys And Are In Need Of Some Soldering. I Will Include The Original Fender Case, Which Is REALLY WORN & RATTY!This will be a great project for someone who has the time to dedicate to it.
