The Limited Edition Shortboard Fender Mustang is a high spec custom shop version of the 1960s classic.
Fender launch a fantastic looking limited edition Shortboard Fender Mustang.
As part of the 10 for ’15 limited edition range, and to celebrate 50 years of a classic, Fender has announced the launch of a limited edition custom shop version of the classic Fender Mustang.
Each Custom Shop Limited Edition instrument is only available for a short time, which makes them eminently collectible and adds to their investment value. Crafted with many features reserved only for certain artists and master built instruments, they are just what the name suggests; they are highly anticipated limited-edition models that sell out very quickly. In that sense the limited edition shortboard Fender Mustang is sure to add to the classic status of this 1960s legend so if you are interested you better hurry up.
The Fender Mustang was launched in 1965 as part of a Fender design re-vamp of its student range of guitars, the MusicMaster and Duo Sonic. The Mustang was produced up until 1982 when it was sadly phased out. However, the Fender Mustang gained cult status in the 1990s when it became the instrument of choice for a number of alternative rock guitarists which included a certain Kurt Cobain. The Mustang was therefore re-issued in the 90s due to the surge in interest in the instrument.
Now, to celebrate 50 years of this great guitar, Fender have launched the custom shop limited edition shortboard Fender Mustang, which we are sure will lead to a fresh surge in demand.
What can you expect from the limited edition shortboard Fender Mustang?
The 21 fret maple neck has a rosewood fingerboard and a modern C profile hand rubbed oil finish.
Fender has gone for an amazing natural look for this re-issue, which really allows you to appreciate the ash body with walnut competition stripes. The neck is maple with a 21 fret rosewood fingerboard. The neck itself has a modern C profile with a nut width of 42.8 mm and a scale length of 610 mm.
The bridge of the limited edition shortboard Fender Mustang is a 6 saddle American strings-thru-body Strat style bridge which provides rock solid tuning stability.
In terms of electrics you have the classic single coil soap bar style pick-ups which give the guitar a real retro feel. Both pick-ups are SB-90 single coils which should deliver a great tonal output. The pickups are accessed through a 3 way toggle switch and there are master volume and tone controls.
The Mustang is a true classic with the looks and sound that you would expect from such an instrument. With the limited edition shortboard Fender Mustang the custom shop has created an instrument which is highly desirable and sure to sell.
