2820 Bo Diddley

An odd pre-Fender model, this is an acoustic/electric model of the Bo Diddley Electromatic series. This guitar was not listed in any catalogs, and is thought to be a dealer-only promo item; nevertheless, it has found its way into the hands of several players. Blonde/natural finish, 25.5 inch scale, piezo under-saddle pickup, maple neck, rosewood fingerboard.

Can you help with additional information on this model? Let us know.
