1966 Fender Mustang


Summary: The Mustang was created as a mid-line model between the student grade DuoSonic and the professional Telecaster. This is a nice playing vintage guitar with lots of wear & lots of character.

Body: Alder offset body. Dakota Red finish.

Neck: Maple with rosewood fretboard and pearloid dot markers. Short (22.5”) scale. Larger CBS era headstock.  The nut width is 1 7/16″.  The frets on this guitar do show some divots and wear but they still have some life left in them.

Pickups/Hardware: Two single coil pickups. Tremolo bridge. Original Kluson Deluxe tuners. White pearloid pickguard. Original on/off/on pickup switches. One volume and one tone control (black witch hat knobs) on separate jack plate.

Cosmetics:  This guitar shows lots of vintage wear – the hardware is pitting, there are lots of small scratches & dings on this instrument.  The headstock logo is wearing off but this instrument is solid & ready to be played and loved.  This instrument has really awesome checking that is happening everywhere. Mojo abounds!

Playability: The action is set low and the short scale neck makes fretting a breeze, especially for folks with shorter fingers. Tone is classic Fender: bright, snappy and surfy.  We set this guitar up with 10’s and it plays great.

Mods/Repairs: N/A

Weight: 7 lbs, 5 0z.

Case:  NO case but we will ship it with a gig bag!
