In the 1965, The Fender® Mustang was introduced as a student model, but the Mustang nonetheless soon found its way to into professional hands and onto concert stages worldwide -- especially into the 1990's emerging world of indie rock and grunge music.
The Fender® Mustang's small offset style could be seen in the hands of noisy rock royalty like Kurt Cobain of Nirvana, Buzz Osborne of the Melvin's, and Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth; but was not limited to the land of misfits and angst. This guitar also found a home with powerhouse players like John McLaughlin (Miles Davis, Mahavishnu Orchestra) and Adrian Belew (Frank Zappa, King Crimson, the Bears).
The 2015 edition of this Fender® Mustang celebrates this quirky guitar's 50th birthday in the style of a Limited Edition American Shortboard Mustang. This shortboard Mustang not has an understated clean and cool look that features an ash body with laminated walnut “competition” stripes. That detail pays stylishly crafted homage to the originals.
This instrument features a maple "C" Shaped neck finished with a hand rubbed oil that makes this guitar extremely comfortable. The Large 70's Style Headstock is laser engraved for an even cooler, worn-in look. The Hardtail design does a great job of keeping the body resonating beautifully and helps maintain tuning stability.
The easy neck, small body, short scale, and handsome look could make this the perfect guitar to play curled up on the couch or cranked at the club!
This guitar is in on trade and it is in great shape. The neck is straight, the frets are still crowned and the truss rod is functioning properly. Included with the guitar is a hardshell, tweed case.
