This 1966 vintage Fender Mustang has just emerged from decades of obscurity in the attic of a hoarder’s house. I was really excited to pull it out of the box but found that it was completely unplayable! That’s ok, all the good guitars I get are completely unplayable at first.

1966 Fender Mustang

I’m really excited to get this one cleaned up and making music again! This video is just the first step in the process. Do you have a vintage Fender Mustang that you’re interested in selling? I’m always looking to buy clean vintage Fender guitars like Mustangs, Jaguars, Jazzmasters, Telecaster, Stratocasters and more! You can send pictures and information to me here:

    Great video. I have a 1964 Mustang that my parents bought when I was 13. Sometime in the late 70’s I believe the guitar was refinished. In addition to refinishing the body the head stock decal was replaced. Since I was not directly involved with the refinishing I am not entirely sure why. But as they say “it is what it is”. Also the switches were replaced and the whammy bar is not original. I am in the process of trying to locate an original 1964 decal. I just located a set of white switches(the replacement ones were black). I believe the original ones were white. The body is Olympic White.

      Thanks Steve! That sounds like a cool guitar! If my memory serves me, white switches weren’t used until the 1970s or so. I think you can find replacement decals on eBay. Good luck in the guitar restoration! Cheers! –John
