$1,399.99

+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2017 Fender Traditional ‘70s Mustang in near-mint, 100% original condition and in perfect working order. An FSR (Factory Special Run) model, this Traditional Series Fender Japan Mustang is discontinued, featuring a custom color Flamingo Pink gloss finish. This model was designed exclusively for the Japanese domestic market and select international territories, uncommon outside of its country of origin.

Effectively capturing the finer points of a classic Mustang, this guitar delivers the goods tonally, and the crisp, clear voice of the instrument when strummed acoustically translates well through the pickup pair. 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 singled out. Lightweight at 6lbs 12oz, this Mustang has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 11-49 strings, low action, and accurate intonation.

The Flamingo Pink gloss finish (suspiciously close to Shell Pink in its presentation) is extremely clean, with wear limited to a couple dings on top at the bass-side waist just north of the pickguard. The neck profile retains its smooth ambered gloss.

A gigbag is included.
