❌SOLD❌ Fender Mustang Dakota Red, 1965

❌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

❌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!

❌SOLD❌ Fender Mustang Refinished Black, 1965

❌SOLD❌ Fender Mustang Refinished Black, 1965

This Fender Mustang guitar is in good playing condition and sounds great. The original grey hard shell case is included, with some graffiti it has acquired over the years. The Mustang features a trem system using a rocking bridge and elevated string bar tailpiece, the springs being located under the chrome bridge plate. Overall, this design shares several elements of the Jazzmaster / Jaguar trem bridge.

❌SOLD❌ Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster Sunburst, 1999

❌SOLD❌ Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster Sunburst, 1999

Here we’re looking at an early American Deluxe Stratocaster, dating to 1999 with the ‘SSS’ three single-coil configuration – or so it seems. The Vintage Noiseless single coils are actually two stacked coils in the stock cover. This rosewood-fingerboard example is in very nice condition, and the most visible wear is that the ‘noiseless’ logos has worn off the pickup covers; this happens fairly quickly. It is equipped with locking tuners, which speed up string changes and can slightly improve tuning stability through fewer wraps on the post. At this time, the locking tuners did not have staggered posts.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Stratocaster Hard Tail Black, 1975

❌SOLD❌ Fender Stratocaster Hard Tail Black, 1975

The Fender Stratocaster Hard Tail Black was produced in tandem with its much better known brother, but it was never as popular as the trem bridge version. This version appealed mostly to players who wanted the extra sustain, snap and ‘spank’ from a fixed bridge – as with a Telecaster. The Fender Stratocaster Hard Tail was finally discontinued in 2010 due to low sales. Here we have a Rosewood fingerboard Fender Stratocaster Hard Tail dating to 1975, and built at the Fender plant in Fullerton, California.
