1966 Fender Mustang Dakota Red with Original Case


Summary: The Mustang was created as a mid-line model between the student grade DuoSonic and the professional Telecaster. This CBS era example is a nice playing vintage guitar and it comes with the original vintage hardshell case! This guitar  includes an aftermarket vibrato bar.

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 divits and wear but they still have some life left in them – most of the fret wear is on the first 3 frets.

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 has great character with checking on the aged finish. There are several dings & nicks around the edges of this instrument and some pitting is happening on the bridge plate, however, this is all consistent with a well-used and loved guitar from the 1960’s. There are a few noticeable dings on the top and one ding is ¾” long.

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.

Mods/Repairs: N/A

Weight: 8 lbs, 1 0z.

Case: Original grey hardshell case with orange lining.
