Fender '73 Mustang, fiesta red with comp stripe, made in Japan 2012. The first thing that struck me about this one when I picked it up is the weight: Mustangs are generally light, but this one is especially so. That's awesome frankly, as it lends the guitar an extra serve of natural resonance and a generous dollop of attack and low end to the tone. It's super punchy plugged in: sizzling highs and a honky midrange with an immediate, percussive low end.It's perfect with a bit of overdrive and a slapback delay. The neck is slim and quick and features some outrageous birdseye grain in the maple; it's luxurious for both hands and eyes. The finish also rules, right? Fiesta red is a little closer to a ketchup orange than the more common candy apple, it certainly has a Miami Vice kinda charm to it. Comprehensively cool.
