Fender Japan '69 Mustang MG69 Sonic Blue 2010
Fender '69 Reissue Mustang, sonic blue, made in Japan 2010/11. There's not a lot that needs to be said here: having seen the pictures, you're likely either in love or you don't really get it. Mustangs have a certain stanky charm: the short scale, super slim neck, quirky trem and lightweight body make them an absolute breeze to play. The tone is thick and snappy with a heap of attack and not much sustain, there's a tasty moody darkness to the timbre that balances the jangle nicely. These always look best in the summery hues; surely the rosewood/tort/sonic blue combo is a breezy delight. Just add a big spring reverb and riff yourself into those warm summer evenings instantly.
