Fender Custom T8 in Natural - Late 1940's

Product Description

This is an early '50's Fender Triple Neck Steel guitar. These are getting harder to find in original condition. The condition is excellent. It's fully functional and cosmetically in great shape. It doesn't have a case.

The 1953 MkI models had twin pickups that had stamped Chrome covers with no blend control. The pickups were blended via the tone control; Full off being Bridge Pickup and as the tone control was advanced the Neck pickup was progressively activated. Later the MkII had two single-coil pickups on each neck with black plastic covers, the blend achieved by a small wheel attached to a pot that sat just behind the bridge, introduced in 1954. The bridge pick-up was always on, and the neck pickup could be fed in to taste using the blend pot. Because the pickups were wired with reversed polarities, blending in the neck pickup caused the pickup configuration to be "hum-bucking". Basically the pickup design was a Humbucker split in half and mounted as two interconnected units. A neck selector switch controlled which neck's pickups were 'live'. On earlier 1950s models, the neck selector was controlled originally by slide switches and later by push-buttons. A single tone and a single volume control served the entire instrument.
