1965-1969 Zen-On/Morales ZES-130 Fender Offset MIJ Vintage Guitar Sunburst

A super sweet little offset from late 60s Japan, these existed under a few different names and guises, as was common for budget guitars of the 60s. This particular one sports a "Zen-On" badge on the headstock, a subsidiary or model that there is very little info on. So we'll just tell you about the guitar!

The design of this guitar is extremely eye-catching and has that whole future-retro vibe going for it, which is super sweet. Very lightweight at 2.6kg but feels very balanced in the hand and sports a full 25.5" scale length with a mild D profile maple neck that is beautifully worn in and feels great in the hands. This one has a very unique albeit archaic tremolo system, if you install an arm it could potentionally provide hours of fun that's for sure! A triple set of Zen-On 60s single coils provide wonderful vintage chime with loads of crisp top end and plenty of bite. Individual on/off switches for each pickup provide total control of the sound and a sweet tone switch gives another layer of tone to this very versatile little guitar.

Just had a professional setup with 10-46s, the guitar has a number of upgrades including a new set of Gotoh aged nickel machine heads, Switchcraft jack socket and fresh screws, as well as two new vintage style control knobs. The guitar plays very nicely with some buzzing evident on the upper frets; it could benefit from a light fret dress, but plays nicely as is.
