Fender Mustang

Dual pickup solid body electric

The Fender Mustang first went on sale in 1964, and has been a feature of the Fender line for most of the last half century. Maybe not as well known as the Stratocaster or Telecaster, but still the instrument that millions of 60s and 70s student guitarists learned to play on.

Part of a series of student solid bodies, Fender initially described it as meeting 'the demand for a low-priced guitar with tremolo', and like the single pickup Muscimaster and non-tremolo DuoSonic, it was available with a regular (24") or 3/4 (22") scale neck - 'for adults or young musicians with small hands'. 24" is still on the shorter side of 'regular', but this makes for a very easy playing guitar that has won it many fans amongst more accomplished guitarists too.

The following description is taken from the 1969 Fender lovin' care catalogue

Fender's popular Mustang meets today's growing demand for a fine low-priced guitar with tremolo. The Mustang may be classed as either a ž or regular size guitar since it is available with either 22 ˝ or 24 inch neck. Two adjustable high-fidelity pickups are standard on each guitar with three-position switch forward on each. The middle position turns the pickups off and tone changes are made on either side of the off position. Eight different tone selections are available, plus the normal tone and volume controls.

Both the 22 ˝ and 24 inch necks are reinforced with an adjustable truss-rod which maintains perfect neck alignment. The bridge channel features Fender's new individual barrel-type bridges for each string. Each bridge varies in size to conform to the fingerboard curve and is adjustable for length. String height may be adjusted by lowering or raising the bridge channel at either end. The new patented Fender easy-action Dynamic Tremolo working in conjunction with the Floating Bridge has extremely smooth action, returning to tuned pitch without variance.

All chrome parts are case hardened and heavily plated to retain their beauty after long use. Available in re, white or blue finishes. Left-hand models available by special order.
