1965 Fender Mustang, Daphne Blue, Short Scale - USED


(USED) From 1965, this Fender Mustang might not be a collector piece, but it plays and sounds great, having had some necessary maintenance over the years.  The color upon release was just deemed "blue" but many refer to it now as Daphne Blue, and this one has oxidized to a mellow greenish blue.  These are very short scale at just about 24" and this one has a 1 9/16" nut and 2 3/16" string spacing at the saddle.  Includes original Dynamic Vibrato and mother of pearl pick guard.

Condition is very good with very little fret wear (we believed they've been leveled and re-crowned at least once) and some dings and scratches consistent with a 60 year old guitar that has seen regular service.  There is some rust on the barrel saddles and oxidization of the screws.  The original pickups were recently re-wound and a previous set of tuners replaced with new period-correct Fenders.  Includes original hard case.
