2002-2004 Fender Japan Mustang MG-77 Vintage Natural & New Hard Case


This guitar has now sold


This 70's reissue Mustang from Fender Japan is in pristine condition. I just couldn't resist it when I saw it for sale. Most Mustangs have a Rosewood fretboard which makes them impossible for me to import at the moment but in the 70's Fender produced them with a Maple fretboard. These have been reissued in very limited numbers by Fender Japan over the years but they are very rarely seen in Japan, let alone in the UK

With it's 24" scale and very cool looks, this offset body Fender has long been popular, firstly as a Surf guitar but later on with Indie bands. They are easy to play & good to look at. This particular guitar, although built in 2002-2004 has clearly hardly ever been used. There are no dings, chips or dents that I could find anywhere on the guitar. As is quite often the case with guitars I import from Japan, the protective film is still on the pickguard. There is no noticeable fretwear and everything is original and works exactly as it should

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 can be upgraded to a very nice tweed one but these are an additional £12 each at present.Please contact me before purchasing if you would like this. 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 £30 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
