Someone on the Forum asked me for the dimensions of a Fender Stringmaster.

Although I've restored one, I don't have one to hand to measure.

Would someone please oblige by measuring one and posting the length, breadth and thickness here.

Thanks. Very Happy

I don't know about anyone else, but I would like to know the dimensions of both the double and triple 8 Stringmasters, with the short, 22-1/2" scale.
Thanks,
Don
