Vintage 1966 Fender Mustang restoration Part 1

This 1966 Fender Mustang electric guitar was just found in the attic of a hoarder - can you imagine? We don't know how long it's been there but they estimated 30 years or more. It's just come in and it's not exactly playable. No surprise there! Most guitars are unplayable after that much time. I'm always looking to buy vintage Fender electric guitars in any condition. This video shows the process of how I bring these guitar back into playing condition. 

Fender's Mustang model debuted in 1964 with three cool colors: Red (or Dakota Red), White (or Olympic White), and Blue (or Daphne Blue). The three colors were standard options although they were custom colors for the non-student level guitars. It features a 24" scale length neck, two student level single coil pickups, on/off/phase invert switching options, and a cool tremolo tailpiece and bridge. 

I'm a big fan of the Fender Mustang. Do you have one you're looking to sell? I'd love to check it out. Click the red Contact Me button in the right corner of your browser to send me a message about your guitar. I'm looking forward to seeing it!
