(SOLD) Fender Japan '69 Reissue Mustang MG69-65 Yellow White 1999-02
Fender '69 Mustang, yellow white, crafted in Japan 1999-02. Between a light body, slim neck, short scale, easy switching and a sensible trem, the Mustang has got to be the quiet overachiever and easiest player of the offset family. This one is looking awesome with a few miles on the buttery finish, it's got a nice dash of subtle play wear without being 'beat up'. There's a slick clean spank to the tone with a nice mix of sparkle and thump, the neck pickup is especially appealing. If you're after a guitar that'll get along perfectly with your several fuzz and reverb pedals, the defined attack and effortless playability of this will surely send you into sonic ecstasy all too easily. Such fun!
