Howard Roberts Fusion Spec History


Recommended Posts



I've noticed some early 80's Howard Roberts Fusions with Fretboard Binding and without. I was wondering if anyone could tell me what models or years had binding and which ones did not?


Does anyone have some history here?


My 1980 model does not have fretboard binding and I was wondering if mine is worth more or less than the ones with fretboard binding.


Thanks as always,

One of my very best jazz guitars, the pickups are a little darker than 57 classics and the body is not as deep as a 175 and the block helps reduce feedback. the fingers tailpiece allows you to adjust the feel the action, personally i like it a lot more than the larger bodied 175 or other traditional jazz guitars. I definitely gravitate to it, it always seems to get me the tone I'm looking for.
