1962 FENTON-WEILL Twistmaster
Serial No. 2167
In July 1962, 'The Twister Range' with it's 'exciting new "horn" shape' was added to Fenton-Weill's 'American Label' range of solids.
Dealer sheet, circa July 1962
'The Twister' itself featured an imported pickguard assembly with electronics by Eko, but it was also possible to order the Weill pickup-equipped American Label range models (namely the Twinmaster, Triplemaster, and Stereomaster) with the new Twister body-shape as the Twistmaster, Triple-Twistmaster, and Stereo-Twistmaster(!)
This 1962 'Twistmaster' features the Twinmaster's deluxe 'exposed polepiece' high-output single coil pickups, and excellent Featherlite vibrato system (which publicity material unfortunately claimed "can not be improved in any way"), with the new'Twister' body-shape.
Note Heel-less Neck Joint and novel 'Blown-in' Black finish on neck.
Nickel-Plated Teardrop-shaped Van Gent tuners with Ivoroid buttons
