The Fender Custom, a.k.a. Fender Maverick, was originally designed to get rid of old necks and bodies originally intended for the Electrix XII that wasn't exactly the success Fender hoped it would be. Later on, purpose-built necks were used. A part of the original 12-string headstock was simply cut out, glued together, and then covered by veneer on back and front. This model was only made in 1969 and 1970.
Type: 1969 Fender Custom
Serial #: Unknown
Remarks: A good thing you can't see the back side of this guitar. The Customs were finished in black at the rear, and obviously re-used Electric XII bodies. Ug-ly.
