2007 Fender Mustang ’65 Vintage Reissue MG65 Olympic White w/ Gray Bobbins, Japan CIJ

$1,399.99

+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2007 Fender Mustang ‘65 vintage reissue model MG65 in 100% original condition and in perfect working order. Easily one of the best Mustangs ever offered by Fender, the MG65 is a discontinued, upper tier model, designed for the Japanese domestic market and uncommon outside its country of origin. The MG65 features USA-spec CTS pots, vintage spec gray bobbin pickups with cloth-covered leads, and Schaller-made Fender "F" tuners. The tonewood complement is also faithful to 1960s Fender spec, with a slab poplar body, maple neck, and thick slab rosewood fretboard.

The pair of gray bobbin pickups can chime with the best, delivering a detailed sound that has sparkle and kick. The three-way on/off/on pickup switches can also produce the Mustang's signature cutting out-of-phase sound when in their innermost or outermost positions. Weighing 7lbs 4oz, this Mustang has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 11-49 strings, low action, and spot-on intonation.
