I bought a used custom shop bajo sexto it was a couple years into their starting production.<br /> it's a bajo sexto, gold metal flake<br /> with f-holes.I have never seen one like it<br /> <br /> I was working in a music store,it came up in the showcase window.<br /> it was bought by a customer of mine who had it for a year and traded it back, then I bought it.<br /> I have a custom shop document were in case when sold to me.<br /> I believe this to be a one of kind instrument.<br /> I called fender custom shop and they said there was no match for this guitar on my certificate. <br /> <br /> -It is definitely from custon shop.<br /> -it has unique color and has f-holes<br /> -I saw it come in new, to store,not a special order for customer.<br /> I realize there is no connection to this site and fender.com<br /> Question is how can I verifyit's one of a kind?<br /> BTW at that time period, fender had made a special ordered Danny Gattons double neck bajo-telecaster in same gold metalflake.<br /> Thanks

I think the reason nobody has replied may have to do with your title. Players that are not into bajo sextos may not want to hear a story about one...but your thread isn't a story, it's a question. Something like this might have worked better:<br /> <br /> <br /> Is this a real Custom Shop bajo sexto?<br /> <br /> <br /> If the CS has no records of it (and they do keep pretty good records), it may be a forgery. One way to dig in a little more would be to contact someone that was working at the CS at the time your BS was built.<br /> <br />

I still have my ´93 Bajo Sexto, beautiful light weight ash body in 2-tone sunburst. Love the guitar and its unique big tone but it is special, of course. You probably don´t need such a long scale Tele every day, so there is not much documentation available, especially from the early days of the Custom Shop....mine has the 2nd version CS logo and a serial number with "V" prefix, those "U.S. vintage series" numbers were also used by the CS until ca. 1995 on some instruments. Fred Stuart built the first ones as one-offs, the model later appeared in the catalogue until ca. 1997?<br /> <br /> Your gold Bajo Sexto with f-holes seems to be one of those Masterbuilt´s? Which logo is on the back of the headstock?
