Fender Mustang 1965 Shoreline Gold Guitarsmith Custom Guitar + SD Parallel Axis Humbuckers

Out of stock

Here for sale is Fender Mustang from 1965 that features the original 1965 body and matching neck and was restored and refinished by us here at Guitarsmith Custom, in Fender 1965 custom finish option Shoreline Gold.

This Fender Mustang from 1965 appears to have been red from the factory. When the guitar came to us the original finish had already been removed and painted yellow. Rather than going for the standard finish restoration in red white or blue which were the only finish options at the time. In the Fender brochures they state the custom finish options were not available on Mustang’s, Musicmasters or Duo Sonics. There were exceptions to the rule however and if you were lucky enough to get a custom finish Mustang back in the day this is what it would have looked like. We decided on restoring this guitar to 1965 custom Fender finish option Shoreline Gold, that is period correct and it looks wonderful on this Mustang.

This Mustang features the original tuning keys. The guitar was already routed for dual humbuckers and we wanted something special under the hood! The bridge and neck pick ups are a set of Seymour Duncan Parallel Axis Humbuckers with the bridge being the distortion version and the neck being the original version. This pickups are known for their spectacular sound. The guitar features original vintage Fender Mustang tuners. It has the new Seymour Duncan 500K pots with the highest quality components and smooth action and an orange drop capacitor and features genuine Fender Mustang bridge, tremolo assembly, tremolo arm, control plate and control knobs. It has a switch craft input jack and slider switches.

This vintage Mustang also benefits from a modern Fender bridge assembly and a Fender bridge for modern tuning stability with a shiny and new appearance. The tremolo function on the bridge is working and is controlled by official Fender Mustang tremolo arm as we have only used official Fender hardware on this guitar no expense was spared. You can select the bridge only, neck only, both pick ups together or in or out of phase, and adjusted with the volume and tone control knobs.

This ’65 Mustang has an absolutely superb neck which has all the feel and beauty of a vintage Fender neck from the golden era. It has a nice C shape profile with a 7.25” fretboard radius. The frets have plenty of life left in them and this guitar features the highly coveted ’60’s Rosewood which has amazing texture and resonance. The classic Fender and Mustang logo’s are there. The guitar also has a Fender ‘F’ stamped neck plate on the back like the original. This Fender Mustang is amazingly light weight and weighs approximately 3.235KG which is nice and light

This is a truly stunning vintage Fender Mustang from 1965 and is highly desirable in the Shoreline Gold finish with the Seymour Duncan Parallel Axis humbucker pick ups. A wondrous guitar to play, hold or even just look at from our new Guitarsmith custom department.
