Fender Mustang Sunburst, 1973

Introduced in 1964 and built until 1982 as a student model, the Fender Mustang has also been used by a number of touring professionals, including Adrian Belew, Kurt Cobain, David Byrne, John Frusciante and of course the late Johnny Winter. Here we’re looking at a Fender Mustang in Sunburst finish, built during 1973 at the Fender Fullerton plant, almost halfway through the period of CBS ownership.

❌SOLD❌  Fender Mustang Faded Mocha, 1975

The Fender Mustang appeared in late summer 1964 as an improved version of the Duo-Sonic, meaning that it had the Fender Dynamic Vibrato added. It came in three colours, for the US Flag – Red, White and Blue. As time went on, more colours became available. Though it was intended as a ‘Student’ level guitar, it found favour with a number of hot players, including the late great Johnny Winter, Adrian Belew, David Byrne and Kurt Cobain.

❌SOLD❌  Fender Mustang Dakota Red, 1965

Appearing in 1964 as part of a revamp of Fender’s entry level line, the Fender Mustang Dakota Red was the lowest priced model that included a tremolo tailpiece. The Mustang was also available in Blue and White. In 1965, following the sale of Fender to CBS, the Mustang – along with other models – received some immediate rebranding. The serial number plate and the tuning machine casings were stamped with a letter F.   On the Mustang, the headstock was also enlarged, a change also applied to the Stratocaster.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Jaguar Olympic White, 1965

The Fender Jaguar appeared in 1962, and while it was based on concepts and parts used on the Jazzmaster, there were a number of design departures. Like the Jazzmaster, the Fender Jaguar used an offset-waist body with comfort contours, and shared the same bridge and vibrato tailpiece design. And, the Jaguar sported the same Rosewood fingerboard, which by this time was a curved veneer rather than a ‘slab’ with a flat bottom.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Telecaster 63 NOS Custom Shop Candy Apple Red, 2007

❌SOLD❌    Fender Telecaster 63 NOS Custom Shop Candy Apple Red, 2007

This Fender Telecaster 63 NOS is based on Fender’s 1963 specs. It is in complete and all original condition, and in good shape – there are a few dents and small chips around the edges of the nitrocellulose lacquer body finish. It is unusual for players to keep the ‘Ashtray’ pickup cover on. Though its purpose is to provide some shielding for the bridge pickup, it can get in the way of palm muting, and most of the time it is removed, set aside, and lost. Not here!
