Here's one of our favourite guitars, one that we've looked at before here on Guitarz. The Fender Swinger is one of that company's rarer production models, with only approximately 300 being made in 1969. Fender had recently been taken over by CBS and the Swinger (a.k.a. Musiclander, a.k.a. Arrow) was a cunning ploy to use up unused stock from unsuccesful instruments from previous years.

Here we get to look "under the hood" where the pickup routing from the body's previous designation as a Fender V five-string bass is uncovered to see.

This particular fine example of a Fender Swinger is currently being offered for sale on eBay with a Buy It Now price of $2,590.
