This is one of the very first in production, even has the ever so rare Brazilian fretboard. From what I gather, Fender used the Brazilian only to get rid of 1983-Vintage 62' reissue old stock before going to Pau Ferro in the late months of 1992.

If my calculations are right, this one is the first 778 from the line. You can search ebay and find Pau Ferro models... but it's *RARE* to see the Brazilian Rosewood on there. The last Brazilian Rosewood on ebay sold for $3500 + $80 shipping.

I'm taking offers on this one. Comes with tweed case. Everything is ALL ORIGINAL on this guitar!!!

I even have the information of the original owner from this guitar.

I have pictures + Disassembled Pictures of it

Are the rosewoods really worth that much more?!

Mines a 93' model but out of curiosity I had the wood tested and it turns out it's a rosewood as well, I'm guessing it was one of the last of them made. I picked it up for only $980 CDN. (though I don't think the guy knew it was a rosewood)

Sweet!

Take off the neck and confirm the date. The Brazilian was installed on random guitars and nobody understands why.

What are y ou talking about he gave a link to a bunch of pictures and I just happened to be scrolling through the ones with that picture when that picture was requested. I figured I'd just copy and paste the link, be helpful and give him a free bump.


I wish I had the cash to buy this guitar off you man but I'm sure someone else does.
