JAPAN IMPORT

Here's a real beauty from Fender Japan. With its 3 tone sunburst offset body & white pearloid scratchplate the MG-69 Mustang is a real head turner.  It's a '69 reissue of the ever popular Mustang. This lightweight medium scale guitar is nice looking, sounds good and very easy to play thanks to it's slim neck & bright responsive pickups.

Prices have gone up significantly in Japan over the last couple of years but this is still a very competitive price for a Japanese made Fender in this condition


For a 25 year old guitar it's in fantastic condition with just some light scratching here and there that I could see and a couple of tiny dents. It looks to have only been lightly used and it plays very nicely. The pickguard screws have dulled over the years and there is some very slight pitting on the chrome parts

About the Fender Mustang...
Originally built as a student guitar by Fender USA back in the 60's the most notable thing about the Mustang is the shorter 24" scale which is the same as the Musicmaster, Duo-sonic & Jaguar. They have proven very popular over the years as a "surf" guitar & again with grunge bands like Nirvana. They continue to be popular today. The shorter scale & lightweight body also makes them popular with players with smaller hands. Two single coil pickups, both with in/out phase switching & a dynamic vibrato system mean that they are a little bit different to the standard Strats & Teles. The 60's reissue models have a simple "slab" body but the later MG-69 & MG-73 models have a contoured body and sometimes also have metallic finishes & colour matched headstocks.

All in all it's an excellent guitar from Fender in Japan that is not so easy to find here in the UK

Hard Case

 

As said many times, all my guitars come shipped in a new black hard case which is included in the price. I find this is the safest way to avoid damage in transit. This case is a nice new fitted one from Thomann in Germany.  Alternatively, if you are collecting the guitar and, like some buyers have cases coming out of their ears, that's no problem, I'll adjust the price (usually around a £50 discount) and I can usually find you an old gigbag to take the guitar away in. The only hard and fast rule I have is that I won't ship a guitar in a gigbag
