Fender '73 Reissue Competition Mustang MG73-CO Old Candy Apple Red 2007-10
Fender '73 Competition Mustang, old candy apple, made in Japan 2007-10. This is quite the style-master, it's very cool indeed. The old candy finish is darker and richer than standard CAR, and combined with a cream racing stripe, this really does ooze cool. Mustangs have found a lot of fans over the years, owing to their slim necks, lightweight slim bodies, practical vibrato system and general awesomeness. The swampy thick tone has a heap of natural bass and attack and a charming short sustain; it's perfect for surf, grunge and punk, among other things. There's a lot to like here, it's sure to look absolutely perfect on stage. You might need to buy a new car to match though!
