    Default Fender 5-string on SGW, rode hard and put away wet

    Looks like a bad headstock break made worse by a bad repair. Nice if you need some spare parts.

    I've been keeping record of the serial numbers of FM60Es that I've sold. I checked and it doesn't look like I ever had this one ... so whatever happened, it isn't my fault.

    I don't know ... maybe the neck wasn't busted, it's hard to tell. Definitely the nut is broken and there's a chip out of the headplate.

    That's what I'm seeing.

    If you need a descent 5 and don't mind some DIY it's worth taking a flyer at that price. Looks like all the electronics are there along with a bag.
