Fender Modern Player Marauder Black 2011

Fender Modern Player Marauder, made in China 2011, lake placid blue. The Marauder was initially a prototype, made briefly in 1965 and envisioned as a 'top of the line' deluxe offset. It was gone by 1966 and never really made it into production, until 45 years later the design was re-worked and released as part of the sometimes wacky but always fun Modern Player series. You get a slightly pointier offset shape paired with a full scale slim C neck; it feels quick and slick in the hands. The neck pickup is a conventional Jazzmaster single coil; it sounds great and offers a heap of clarity. The 'Triplebucker' bridge pickup is... good for a laugh. It's also good in the conventional sense; there's a lot of fun to be had. The 5-way switch allows the Triplebucker to be split up a few ways: trad humbucker, all three coils at once, the middle coil as a single coil, the closest coil paired with the neck pickup, as well as a neck only position. There's a lot to like; the HB sound is grindy and growly and the all-three-coils position offers a certain midrange honk and bite that's a lot of fun. Needless to say, it also looks awesome, no?

Cosmetic condition notes: minor finish wear. Neck and headstock pretty clean, no major marks. The back and sides have a couple of very light scuffs and a scratch coming off the cavity, no major marks. The sides are pretty clean, just very minor scuffs near the jack. The front has a couple of scuffs behind the bridge and some play wear guard. There's some clouding on the chrome parts but they all work fine. Overall: very good condition (8/10)

Playing condition notes: Action is low, neck is straight, intonation is good, truss rod works. Frets have some minor wear, 8/10 for fret life left. All electrics tested and working properly. Wearing fresh 11/49 Moonshiners.
