The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

Fender Mustang Sunburst, 1972 (No Longer Available)


Instrument Categories: , , , ,

The Fender Mustang was added to the Fender program in 1964 and was aimed at starter and intermediate guitar players. The model evolved from the Musicmaster and Duo-Sonic student models and had a similar body shape, short 22.5″ or 24 inch scale length neck and pickup(s).

As an entry model, the Mustang used a Poplar body paired with a Maple neck and Rosewood fingerboard. By late 1967, Indian Rosewood had replaced Brazilian as the standard fingerboard material. Consequently this 1972 model does not require CITES documentation for shipping across borders. The pickguard is a pearlescent multi-layer. The pickups have black covers, and the bridge / trem assembly is a simplified version of the Jaguar / Jazzmaster units. The tuners are Schaller style with creme plastic buttons. All the hardware is in very good, clean condition.

Dating to 1972 and built at Fullerton California, this 24 inch scale Fender Mustang example is in overall excellent condition.  Fret and fingerboard wear are light and the guitar appears to be largely original. The neck pickup switch had failed and was replaced.

The Fender Mustang is supplied with its original grey rectangular hard shell case.
