The Fender Vintera '60s Mustang PF Electric Guitar is a rendition of the legendary model favoured by many a musical pioneer. From stalwarts of the underground scene to later grunge luminaries, the Mustang has been the instrument of choice for those who may have started on the fringes of mainstream music, but ultimately went on to influence generations thereafter. Each Vintera '60s Mustang us built with the same unabashed spirit at its core, and even features a deluxe gig bag to encourage you to get out and change the world too!
Cool Mustang body
For those who know, the Mustang needs no introduction. However, for those yet to make its acquaintance we're more than happy to oblige. Boasting one of the most desirable playing feels one could hope for, the sleek double-cutaway body shape is the stuff dreams are made of. Resting snugly against your body whether played in a seated or standing position, the bevelled edges and shapely curves enchant any and every guitarist. Lightweight and a joy to perform with, the Mustang's alder body is protected by a coating of gloss polyester to ensure that the vibrant paintwork ages in style.
Sleek neck profile
Married to the body via bolt-on construction is a supple and supportive thin "C"-shape neck, set along a generous 24-inch scale length. Finished in gloss urethane, the hand is afforded freedom of movement whilst minimising feelings of stickiness or tackiness. Rather than using the scarcely available rosewood as on the original model, Fender instead opt for Pau Ferro for tonal as well as visual resemblance. Navigating your way around the 21-frets at your disposal is easily done thanks to the white position inlays.
Smooth Vintage-Style Pickups
Making their home on the Vintera '60s Mustang are a pair of specially designed vintage-style single-coil Mustang pickups. Control couldn't be simpler thanks to the intuitive layout that incorporates a master volume pot, master tone pot, 2 slider switch and a three-way pickup toggle switch. No unnecessary fumbling around to find the tone you want, simply make some minor adjustments and you're in tonal nirvana! Vintage style Jazz Bass controls knobs are oversized and add to the pawn shop chic of the Mustang setup.
Hardware and finish
In keeping with the elegant aesthetic, the hardware is finished in nickel/chrome, whilst the body finish is complemented by a 4-ply aged white pearloid pickguard. Vintage style tuning machines reside on the headstock, where you'll find the period-specific Fender Mustang logo (naturally). The 6-saddle vintage-style Mustang tremolo affords precise vibrato control so that you can infuse your performance with subtle inflections. Everything down to the last detail has been pored over with steadfast dedication to ensure that you receive and instrument of the highest quality.
