Fender - Mustang [1966]

AED. 19,990.00

Fender Mustang Model Solid Body Electric Guitar (1966), made in Fullerton, California, red lacquer finish, alder body, maple neck with rosewood fingerboard, gig bag case.

This is a VERY well-played but original 1966 Fender Mustang, made less than two years after the model's debut in 1964. The Mustang was Fender's classiest student guitar, basically a Duo-Sonic with the new "Dynamic Vibrato" tailpiece and a floating bridge. The model was instantly successful and has proved a timeless favorite with countless garage bands from the 1960s and '70s until today.

The features of the instrument are typical for this year. The body on sports a red lacquer finish with a lot of wear nut not much fade. The pickguard is laminated plastic with a white pearloid top layer. The neck is the smaller of two sizes offered on this model with an "A" width of 1 1/2" at the nut and has a short 22 1/2" scale length. This smaller "student" neck was a catalog option but in practice did not prove popular on the Mustang, making it a relatively rare feature.

  • Maple neck with Rosewood fretboard
  • Double cutaway body
  • White pickguard
