2011 Fender Mustang ‘69 Vintage Reissue MG69/MH Candy Apple Red, Near-Mint, Japan MIJ

$1,449.99

+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2011 Fender Mustang ‘69 vintage reissue model MG69/MH in near-mint, 100% original condition and in perfect working order. Produced exclusively for the Japanese domestic market and uncommon outside of its country of original, this “Made in Japan” Mustang boasts a Candy Apple Red gloss finish with matching headstock and a pearloid pickguard.

There's plenty to love about this Mustang, from the lightweight and resonant body to the pair of stock single coil pickups that deliver plenty of snap and twang. The crisp, clear voice of the instrument when strummed acoustically translates well through the pickups. Of course one of the most fun sounds on the Mustang is the out-of-phase setting, engaged when both on/off/on pickup selector switches are at their innermost or outermost points. The quack and spank of that particular setting is unique to the Mustang, and there's plenty of tonal range between the two pickups, with meatier sounds when the neck pickup is soloed and more aggressive twang at the bridge. This Mustang weighs 6lbs 10oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 11-49 strings, low action, and spot-on intonation.
