Fender '69 Reissue Mustang, old candy apple red, made in Japan 2010-11. There's a disarming charm about a Mustang, and this one certainly has plenty of charisma. The short 24" scale, light body and slim neck mean you're never fighting to keep it in line; it's a very cooperative little player. The single coils dole out a thick, fast attack with a sweet round body and quick decay; it's perfect for angular riffs, spacey ambient lines, or jarring rhythm parts. The old candy apple finish is classic and always looks great on stage, especially combined with the sleek offset lines of the body. This is one of those guitars that takes a bit of playing to get used to, but once you're there, you're hooked; it's just so much fun to play!

Cosmetic condition notes: minor finish wear. The biggest mark is a dent on the top edge of the body, up from the bridge, aside from that it's just a few dimples, mostly concentrated around the edges near the strap pin and electronics. Few other very minor marks here and there. Overall: very good condition (8/10).
Playing condition notes: Action is low, intonation is good, neck is straight, truss rod works. All electrics tested and working properly. Frets have some minor wear, 7.5/10 for life left. Cute!
