Fender '69 Reissue Mustang Yellow-White Anime Graphics 2004-052004
Fender '69 Reissue Mustang, yellow white, crafted in Japan 2004-05. Here's something a little different for you. The pickguard and pickup covers on this have a custom vinyl decal applied, which would be removable fairly easily if desired. The graphics feature a character called Haruna, a magical girl who fights evil creatures with a pink chainsaw (only in Japan right!?) in a show called Kore wa Zombie Desu ka (english: Is This a Zombie?). It's certainly striking, and if you're the kind of performer who enjoys who thrives on the 'love me or hate me but you can't ignore me' approach, this might be a winner for you. It's also a very good guitar, which helps! The yellow-white finish looks amazing, and the plonky, warm signature-Mustang tone is instantly charming. The Mustang tremolo is very user friendly, and the short scale and skinny neck combine for a basically-effortless playing experience. This is cool, and for the right player, it's a superb and eye-catching gig machine.
