Vintage 1966 Fender Mustang Red Slab Fretboard
Posted on May 30 2020
This vintage 1966 Fender Mustang in original Red finish came through the shop a few years ago. It's a rare example with the thick slab Rosewood fretboard. I'm always a vintage Fender guitar buyer but I especially love the Mustang guitars. Please contact me here to sell a vintage Fender Mustang guitar.
Check out a few other vintage Fender Mustang guitars that have come through the shop:
The Fender Mustang debuted in 1964 as a quality electric guitar at an affordable price. Leo's team packed it with cool features like the offset waist body shape, tremolo tailpiece, and two pickups with phase switchable wiring. Fender introduced the veneer Rosewood fretboard in place of the slab in 1962 but a few short scale Fenders escaped the factory with slab Rosewood fretboard between August and November of 1965. This is one of those rare guitars with a slab Rosewood fretboard made in September of 1965.
All parts appear to be original to the guitar except for one slider switch. The neck and frets are in near factory condition and the guitar plays like a dream (edit: sold!)
