Excellent condition featuring offset poplar body with Vintage White finish, multi-ply tortoiseshell grain pickguard, maple C shape neck with tinted gloss polyurethane finish, Indian Laurel fingerboard with white dot inlays and narrow tall frets, enlarged maple Fender style peghead with vintage gold Squier by Fender logo and black Mustang logo, six in a line vintage style tuners, two Fender designed Alnico single coil pickups, one volume control and one tone control with black knobs on elongated metal plate, on/off slider and in/out phase switch for each pickup, floating bridge with dynamic vibrato tailpiece, nickel plated metal hardware, and two metal strap buttons.
This awesome short scale Fender Mustang is cosmetically excellent, plays fantastic and really captures the vibe of the 1960s surf machine. There is one small indentation in the finish on the top below the bridge which is not very visible in the photos or in person. It is about the size of a pencil eraser and the guitar is otherwise extremely tidy. The on/off selector switch for each pickup is very useful and can be used to create a mix of different Fender tones. The neck profile is very slim and comfortable. The Fender dynamic vibrato tremolo system works very well. This series of guitars offers vintage feel and sound with extremely good playability and classic Fender looks for a fraction of the price. This is our favorite series offered by Squier. A gem of a guitar shipped out safely and promptly from our little shop here in Clarksville, Tennessee, to your front door.
From the manufacturer: While small in stature, the Classic Vibe ‘60s Mustang® packs a punch of incredible tone courtesy of the dual Fender-Designed alnico single-coil pickups. Small hands will appreciate the short 24” scale length and slim, comfortable “C”-shaped neck profile with an easy-playing 9.5”-radius fingerboard and narrow-tall frets. This Mustang is faithful to the original with a vintage-style tremolo system for expressive string bending effects and floating bridge with barrel saddles for solid string stability. This throwback Squier model also features 1960s-inspired headstock markings, rich-looking nickel-plated hardware and a slick vintage-tint gloss neck finish for an old-school vibe.
