Master M-80

MS 034 4100 1

The M-80 was designed by Fender Custom Shop Senior Master Builder, Todd Krause, to be the workingman's guitar for a new generation of players, and is an accumulation of more than 25 years of building guitars for some of the most recognized guitarists of all time – including Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, Bob Dylan, Jeff Beck, Roger Waters and Richie Sambora to name a few! This guitar is an evolution of the M-77 and Series 24 guitars and features a basswood body, mahogany set-neck construction, satin, Duncan Designed™ humbucking pickups and platinum hardware.

Here's Todd Krause speaking about the M-80:

"I've been working on the M-80 for a long time. I designed it for somebody who was playing at a club, working with a label, about to be signed. I wanted to build a "workingman's guitar" for a new generation of players. That guitar evolved from many years of seeing things in guitars that I like or dislike. A lot of designs on that guitar are my gut-level reaction to what I see people playing, my playing, and what players tell me they like and dislike – or find comfortable and uncomfortable."

There's a lot of design in the M-80 that doesn't meet the eye. For example, the body comes from a shortened Mustang guitar. If you put a longer-scale neck on a Mustang , you have to shorten the body do it feels right. I placed the strap buttons, so that when the guitar is hanging, it feels familiar. Let me put it this way...I've got 25 years in the business, and the M-80 is the accumulation of 25 years of designing and building guitars for the world's most discriminating players."
