2021 Fender Ben Gibbard Mustang Natural


+ shipping

Out Of Stock
Up for sale, a 2021 Fender Ben Gibbard Mustang in like-new, 100% original condition and in perfect working order. This Mustang was designed in collaboration with the Death Cab for Cutie frontman to recreate the look and feel of the modded ‘70s Mustangs that are his go-to workhorses on tour, with a couple player-friendly modern tweaks including a hardtail bridge, custom-voiced pickups, and a chambered ash body for increased resonance and reduced weight.

Weighing 7lbs 9oz, the tonewood complement yields an acoustic response with good midrange heft and woody chop balanced by the articulation inherent to the one-piece maple neck. The vintage-inspired single coils have plenty of jangle and sparkling cut in the bridge position, while the neck pickup has more warmth and sweetness, retaining a defined overall character, and this Ben Gibbard Mustang is outfitted with a three-way rotary pickup selector switch. This Mustang has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 11-49 strings, low action, and spot-on intonation.
