Fender F-1030

Fender F-1030

Fender acustic. My first guitar which I got in 1969. You don't see many Fender acustics from this era. Later models don't look anything like this. I once saw a Harmony that looked identical. This guitar always sounded great but the action was rather high. Eventually the neck got so out of wack that I added a filed down nail to the nut to raise it even more and I just play it with a slide. I added the Dean Markley pickup so I could play electric slide. It sounds great. Found this site which identifies this guitar as a Fender F-1030 or Harmony H165.

As of 2018 this guitar has been stripped down and is waiting until I have time to remove and reset the neck. I really hope to restore.
