Summary: Originally released in 1964, the Mustang was the third in Fender's student series-following the Musicmaster and Duo-Sonic-but the first offset to be featured in the range. The original Mustang was a dual-pickup, 22-fret, medium-scale guitar and it has an offset waist like a Jazzmaster and was the first of the student models to feature a vibrato system. The 1966 Mustang did get the larger headstock typical of the CBS-acquisition era, an additional patent number on the headstock and “F key” tuners with white plastic knobs that had a squarer shape. The blue models had three-ply white pearl pickguards, solid black pickup covers and black pickup switches. This 1966 Mustang has some cosmetic issues but is still in good vintage condition and it plays and sounds great.

Body: Solid double cutaway, finished in a gloss Daphne Blue.

Neck: Maple with a Rosewood fingerboard, 24” scale length, 1 5/8” nut width, 22 frets, white dot inlays, larger headstock.

Pickups/Hardware: Two single coil pickups, master volume/master tone controls, on/off slider and in/out phase switches, floating bridge and “Dynamic Vibrato” tailpiece, F key white tuning keys, pearl pickguard.

Cosmetics: This guitar has various nicks, dings, and scratches on the body and the back of the neck and headstock. There is tons of finish checking on the neck and body. The frets have light divots. Overall, this guitar has some cosmetic issues, but it still plays and sounds fantastic.

Playability: Our in-house guitar tech has inspected, setup, and restrung this guitar with a new set of 10’s. The neck is straight, the truss rod is fully functional, and the action has been setup low and comfortable. The frets are in great shape with no major grooves or divots from use and it plays beautifully up and down the fretboard with no dead spots or choking out.

Weight: 7.445 lbs.

Case: This guitar ships without a case but we professionally packaged it and it will be fully insured.
