My father told me stories of his Custom Masquerader and how he regretted ever selling it. To see if the legends were true, i bought one for myself. When i received it, it had missing knobs and all the moisture had been sucked out of it, I was beginning to lose hope... But I pursued its restoration and eventually I had a mostly working and mostly stock guitar, and it appears the legends were no mere myth. The neck felt great and the action was amazingly low for an old, unloved British guitar. it's a shame that it has never gained much of a following but this is definitely a guitar I shall keep treasured.
