Welcome to Monster Music NY!
Introduced just before the CBS takeover of Fender, the Mustang was part of a redesign of Fender's line of student level guitars which included the Duo-sonic and Musicmaster. The Mustang offered somewhat more sophisticated electronics than earlier student guitars and also featured a 24-inch scale length. In its earliest era, the Mustang was available in a shorter 22 1/2-inch scale length, but these guitars are very uncommon. Since being discontinued in 1982, the Mustang has been reissued a number of times, and has found some popularity among alternative and indie rock players.
This guitar has definitely seen it's share of the stage & road, but plays better than any Fender we've had come through the store, definitely one of "the greats". Body was refinished, most likely a DIY job. Neck has a few nicks in it. All electronics function just perfectly.
Monster Music has been in business for close to 30 years, so please bid and buy with confidence.
