Born in the Sixties: Electric Guitars
1967 Musicraft Messenger Guitar
This Messenger guitar features ahead-of-its-time features like a magnesium-aluminum alloy neck, stereo output, and a built-in fuzztone circuit called the Tone Messer. The pickups are D’Armond single-coils that can be sent to separate amps through dual output jacks. Messenger guitars were played by Mark Farner of Grand Funk Railroad.
