1 in stock

2,370.00

Here for sale is Fender Mustang from 1966 that features the original 1966 body and matching neck and lovingly restored by us here at Guitarsmith. The guitar has been professionally refinished in Sonic Blue which really pops and has a brighter radiance than the standard blue Mustangs.

1 in stock

This is accentuated by a custom made vintage correct White Tortoise shell pick guard with a stunning marbled tortoise design. The guitar has been hot rodded with Seymour Duncan Hotrail bridge pick up. The pick up has been installed upside down to fit the original pick up cavities so no extra routing was required. The pick up still functions the same, so if you wanted to make it vintage correct you could do so. The guitar also features a neck pick up from the Fender Kurt Cobain Mustang, which is a highly sought after part and sounds fantastic. It is a great combination and is a pairing Kurt Cobain would love as he often had the Seymour Duncan Hotrail installed in his Mustangs and Stratocasters. We think he would have dug the Sonic Blue finish too with light blue being his favourite colour for guitars and cars!

The guitar also features an official Fender Mustang control plate and Fender control knobs as well as a Fender white pick up cover for the Kurt Cobain Mustang pick up. The original cover is not included. 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. The pick up selectors are made by Switch craft and all the classic Mustang sounds are there although hot rodded! 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. The guitar also features the original vintage Fender tuning keys with the white plastic ends and there is still plenty of life left in them yet. There is no routing on the guitar. The body has a couple of slight dings here or there, under the paint the most notable being a round ding on the back of the upper horn. For a vintage 1966 Fender Mustang this guitar is holding up exceptionally well and with the upgrades looks almost like a new guitar.

This ’66 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 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 one. This Fender Mustang weighs 3.425KG. The date stamp on the neck is 18 April 66 B.

This is a truly stunning vintage Fender Mustang from 1966 and is highly desirable in the Sonic Blue finish which you rarely see on a vintage Fender Mustang. A wondrous guitar to play, hold or even just look at!

Just to show a glimpse of the work that goes into refinishing a guitar. The sonic blue original paint was carefully removed before being primed for the shell pink #guitarsmith #fender #jagstang #kurtcobain #shellpink #restoration #guitar #hamburg https://t.co/lZS0ysiWDi https://t.co/fm5TrWkjcC
