Fender Japan '69 Reissue Mustang MG69 Rebel Yellow 2010
Fender '69 Mustang, rebel yellow, made in Japan 2010/11. Oh boy, that's very yellow. Very very yellow indeed... I think Fender found a way to bottle the actual sun and spray it onto a guitar. Rebel yellow was a non-catalog finish in 2010-ish when this was made, as it was for the past few decades, so you very rarely see it, especially on a Mustang. Aside from the loud looks, this is a sweet little friend that's in superb shape. The classic combo of a short scale, super light body, slim neck and cheeky vibrato system always add up to a fun time; this is an effortless player that's super smooth in the hands. The immediate, thick, spanky attack balances warmth and roundness with grit and sparkle for a tasty tone time all around. If you like it, don't count on seeing another one anytime soon!
