Offered for sale:
Used 1967 Fender Bronco serial number 213240.
This guitar is in good condition, neck and frets are fine. Cosmetically there are a few nicks and marks, primarily two nicks on the back. The saddle are now nicely modified Strat saddles. Vibrato bar is missing. We’re on the hunt.
The Fender Bronco was produced from mid-1967 until 1981. It used the body and neck from the Fender Mustang, but featured a single pickup and a unique to the Bronco, tremolo arm mechanism. Unlike the other Mustang variants which had 22.5" scales, the Bronco was offered only with a 24" scale length and a maple neck featuring a "round-lam" rosewood fingerboard with 22 frets and pearl dot inlays.
Though it was released initially as a student-level entry guitar, along with the Fender Bronco Amp, this single-pickup electric has acquired value over the years. Its single pickup was mounted in the bridge position, unlike the Musicmaster which had a neck pickup only and the Mustang and Duo-Sonic, which both had two pickups. The unique tremolo arm was Leo Fender's fourth and least popular design, and appeared only on the Bronco. It is sometimes unofficially known as the Fender steel vibrato, and colloquially as the Bronco trem.
The Bronco was usually produced with a rosewood fingerboard and standard fiesta Red finish, but later in the series Fender introduced black finish. The Bronco, like the Musicmaster and the Mustang, was discontinued in 1981 Unlike its older and more popular cousin, the Mustang, it has not seen a re-issue, with the result that the Bronco trem is the only one of Fender's four tremolo arm designs not in current production.
Cool guitar, great piece of Fender history, plays smoothly sounds good!

*Please note: we do our best giving descriptions of used pieces. We have found it impossible to describe every mark on an instrument or amp that is not in the "mint" category. Also, what's important to you may not be important to someone else. For example, you may say, "I don't care what it looks like as long as it plays or sounds well." Another person may say, "Body cosmetics are very important to me so tell me about every scratch, nick and blemish." So, please ask the questions that are most important to you. If you ask they will be answered. They are free and there's no limit. Additional photos can also be made available.
