1960’s Zenon Cadet 2 Tone Made in Japan Dual Pickups Pro Setup Hard Shell Case
Out of stock
Today, Lawman Guitars is Presenting...
A really cool and very RARE Zenon made in Japan Electric Guitar. This guitar is very cool and it plays and sounds great! These were made in in the mid 1960’s and are some of the most sought after higher end models from Zenon… this is the Two Tone Green and Aqua model with 2 Zenon logo’d pickups and still has the original whammy bar, Bridge cover and Hard Shell Case…Pretty rare for me not to have seen one before. There is one other out there so I know there is at leaset 2! LOL… All checked out and ready to ROCK Again!!
The guitar is in very good shape…The original Pickguard is very very rare and its completely there. No broken tips or anything. That pickguard is worth the asking price alone…The bridge Plastic Pickup cover has been cracked, see pic 3 ..It doesn't affect the performance of the pickup. Only cosmetic damage... The Zenon Pickups sound great. You will love the sound from these. Very full and in charge. The neck is nice and full. Not a whimpy neck like on a lot of the Teisco guitars our there. This one is a hand full and feels great.
The guitar had an improper set of tuners on it when we got it. We replaced them with proper MIJ Individual 6 in a line tuners. There is also two small holes in the back bout...not sure what they were for but we left them alone... See pics.
Besides setting it up great with low playing action, Jeff the Tech fully checked out the switches and electronics. He pronounced it ready to gig…No sore fingers playing this one…All original parts on this guitar which makes it very rare!!
The Made in Japan Single Coil Pickups sound great … I have it strung up with new 10's for easy play and bending. All original...It even has the original Whammy bar and Pickguard. Those are always missing!
I have the original Hard Shell case with it. All original and it fits the guitar perfectly.
Now this guitar is uber cool but old and vintage so it is sold as-is no returns..however…I have been hand picking my customers guitars and gear out for them for over 18 years now..they all loved the instruments I found them..this cool Zenon will not be an exception...
Thanks for checking out our cool guitars!
