Fender '73 Reissue Competiton Mustang, fiesta red, made in Japan 2012. This poor girl needs a more attentive lover; it's barely been gazed upon in five years since birth... the condition is remarkable, it could basically pass for brand new. The finish is superb: a fiesta red Mustang looks great; add in a competition stripe and a matching headstock and it looks supremely bad-ass. The neck features a bit of flame through maple too, adding to the sense of visual overachievement. The signature Mustang tone is certainly there: big, round attack with heaps of bass and spank, short sustain and a sweet bashfulness that's perfect for surf, indie and punk. The short scale and skinny neck mean that it basically plays itself, all you have to do is work on your guitar-solo-face. She's a sweet player with heaps of charm and attitude, so please... take her home and give her a good workout playing some equally charming tunes!
