(SOLD) Used Fender Mustang '69 Reissue Competition Blue
Fender Mustang, '69 reissue in competition blue, made in Japan 2004-05. These metallic finishes with the racing stripe really do look awesome, it's got an appealing retro aesthetic. This one has barely been touched in 12ish years, it could almost be new. The retro style white-button locking machine heads are a nice touch, and a previous owner has stained the board to a darker ebony-style look; it's a pro-job so it's very tidy with no bleed. Mustangs are pretty addictive to play, they're super slinky with a quick decay and big round tone; this is a classic example and is hard to put down. The slim neck is effortless in the hand and the body is very light, you're never working hard to play it. Your new favourite!
