Fender '65 Mustang Reissue Guitar

Small and fast -- like a sports car! Fender is proud to reissue the '65 Mustang guitar (1965 was the first full year of Mustang production). Originally designed as a 'student model,' the Mustang was nonetheless destined for greatness, and has been seen slung over the shoulders of great players such as David Byrne, John Frusciante, Kurt Cobain, Todd Rundgren, Graham Coxon and Adrian Belew, to name but a few.

This reissue comes in great vintage colors (Daphne Blue, Olympic White and Dakota Red) with highly period-correct detailing. Features include a Poplar body, C-shaped Maple neck with 22-fret Rosewood fingerboard, 4-ply pickguard with classic control plate and pickguard gap, chrome hardware, Fender/Gotoh vintage-style tuning machines with white buttons, floating bridge with 'Dynamic' vibrato tailpiece, 2 Mustang single-coil pickups with on/off slider switch and in/out phase switch for each pickup, 'F'-stamped neck plate and vintage correct headstock and bridge plate logos. A classic revived, and a real beauty at that!

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (31 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Not one of the better Fender models."
Sound: Eh...heard better. Feature: This was my second ever electric guitar...bought it new in about 1966 or so. Switches and tremelo all broke or became useless over time. Not a real nice guitar. Ease of Use: Pretty high action.... Quality: Cheap Fender...that's what you buy...that's what you get. Value: Buy a Strat or a Tele...I did. Manufacturer Support: Never used. Probably should have, but I was a teenager.... The Wow Factor: For Nostalgic purposes ONLY. Overall: Not too awful for a new guitarist who wants a Fender and has limited funds...but I'd buy a Mex Strat instead. MUCH better guitar.
Style of Music: Classic Rock

"This was originally a beginners guitar. If you are not used to low action ~ Don't waste your money."
Sound: The original was awsome, especially with slinky's. Very fast. However the slinky's take away from that "Bite". With the right amp combo (I had a Fender Champ), and fuzz tone it was great for those "60's" sounds. I own a Jazzmaster, Telecaster, Stratocaster, Les Paul Studio, Jaquire and a Hoffner. I can't get the strings close enough to the neck. Unfortunately Nam took my "neck" hand and messed it up. I'm hoping to get to play one and will buy it if the tech's are willing to adjust it to my satisfaction. Does anyone know if it has a truss rod? Feature: Bought it used without tremelo rod. Ease of Use: The action was increditably close. Quality: The original was. I don't know about the re-issue. Value: I could be mistaken, but didn't this start out at around $699.00? Manufacturer Support: The woman I talked to on the phone at Fender didn't seem to know what she was talking about! All she kept saying is: "You need to buy the guitar first and then call me back if I have any questions". Very un-professional. If she didn't have the answers she should have passed me on to someone who did. The Wow Factor: D. All the above. Nostalsia stands out for someone my age, who grew up in 1960's Southern California. Overall: If it stands up to the original, it would be my last guitar. I would have to hear the pick-ups to see if they squeal in front of my amp.
