How many vintage guitar buffs ever heard of Micro-Frets? We’ve currently got two of these iconic axes in stock! (See our eBay auctions.)
The Micro-Frets company of Frederick Maryland built about 3000 guitars and basses in the late 60’s and early 70’s. They remained a fairly small company despite having a few high profile players like Buddy Merrill and Mark Farmer of Grand Funk Railroad.
Don’t believe us? Here’s Carl Perkins using a Micro-Frets to do some headchopping with Eric Clapton and Johnny Cash…
In some ways, Micro-Frets were just ahead of their time with some pretty futuristic body shapes as well as innovative electronics, tremolos and the very cool, fully intonatable nut!
The guitar pictured a Micro-Frets Spacetone with DArmond pickups in near-mint condition. Part of their Series 2 guitars, this axe was probably built in 1969 or 1970.
This guitar is currently for sale on eBay. See more photos and place your bid here.
