Fender FM-60E, sunburst. $550–575.
Here's a semi-hollow 5-string electric from Fender. Nato body with single F-hole, attractive flame maple top, and tobacco sunburst finish. The back, sides, neck, and headstock are finished in black. The FM-60E is one of several models imported by Fender from Korea a few years ago, and was discontinued in 2007. In fact, evidence suggests it was built for only three years, from 1999 to 2001. The 2001 models are the most desirable because they have adjustable truss rods.
     Immaculate low action and pleasing jazz guitarlike tone. There are two single-coil pickups, tone and volume controls, and a 3-way selector switch. 18-fret rosewood fretboard with dot inlays, 1-3/8" nut width, 14" scale, chrome hardware, strings-through-body bridge, 5-in-a-line tuners with amber buttons, pearl headstock logo, brown-white bound top.
     Here are the FM60Es I currently have in stock:
  1. Serial number KD01020071. Light player wear. Two dings and some buckle scratches on the back. A small ding on the back of the headstock, and a smaller ding on the top, 1 inch below the bridge. 2001 model with truss rod. $550 plus shipping. Standard gig bag included, or upgrade to a custom gig bag or hardshell case. See more photos, or for more information.
  2. Serial number KD01030079. This one has some player wear, including a little fretwear, and a couple of dings on the body. The pickup switch has been moved down near the control knobs, leaving a small hole in the pickguard at the switch's original location. Set up with flatwounds and sounds great. 2001 model with truss rod. $550 plus shipping. Standard gig bag included, or upgrade to a custom gig bag or hardshell case. See more photos, or for more information.
  3. Serial number KD00007031. Formerly owned by a pro player in Oklahoma, who evidently didn't play it all that much. Clean and well cared for. 2000 model (no truss rod). $550 plus shipping.
