Hello Musicians, Jeff from The Retrojets here, see      I am passionate about playing, collecting and trading only good quality and interesting instruments.
My favourite guitars are Gretsch and Schecter, both manufacturers, as you know, produce guitars of stunning quality using superb craftsmanship and parts.
If you see our Retrojets band website you will notice my gorgeous Gretsch and Schecter Basses which I always use on stage, not for sale, sorry!

This beautiful Japanese acoustic guitar is made by Fender. The manufacture of F-35 took place between 1972 and 1981, Fender are not able to supply further dating information.

The guitar was given a price tag of $215 in the 1970s, so it was a fairly expensive mid-range instrument at the time.

Every F-35 was made using a lovely clean Spruce top, but the real feature is the exotic Obankole used for the sides and the back, and then matching down the rear of the neck and headstock.

It looks like a sort of dark walnut / deep mahogany, really nice, and of course the guitar has that rich deep tone of a vintaged dreadnought, I have polished the frets, cleaned and lemon-oiled the fretboard and fitted D'Addario 09 - 46 strings. so it is ready to give some lucky musician great pleasure for years to come. 

The Fender machineheads are also seventies, and are replacements, the buttons are great, complimenting the instrument perfectly

The quality of this guitar is 'good for age' there are signs of natural ageing which is what we want, a small almost insignificant scratch at the front of the bridge, see pics, the structure is sound, no nasty dings or anything like that

I will securely package and ship via Parcelforce 48 on a tracked service.
I understand the difficulty of shipping guitars and pack appropriately.
Welcome to collect from Bourton near Wincanton on the A303, if so Cash on Collection, thanks.
