Today, Lawman Guitars is Presenting..
A beautiful 1965 USA Fender Mustang Guitar in Olympic White with the Original Fender Orange Plush Hard Shell Case....
I am dating this to 1965. It has a late 1965 serial number on the neck plate...see pics
I especially love the really cool Olympic White color. Its been around, has some dings and scratches, but no breaks or anything other than superficial things…The white has turned into the awesome cream color you want to see on these cool guitars... You cannot replicate that look. With the Original Tortise look pickguard, this is the color combo you want in one of these. It was Fenders most popular…I love the look!
This fantasic Fender Mustang guitar has dings and scratches as you would expect from a guitar of this vintage. The wear is all player wear and not abuse. Its worn in all the right places…see pics... The pickups sounds massive and the action is low and set up great. It appears to have the original nut. Original Pickguard, tailpiece, knobs, Fender F Tuners and everything. We even have the bridge cover and whammy bar.... This is a time capsule that some lucky guitar player or collector will love to own. Check out the pics of this beauty. Its awesome!
Heres some info I found regarding the use of the two Pickup Selector Switches..
Each pickup has its own switch.
The switches are 3 way sliders.
The middle position is off, and the outside positions are on.
So if both switches are in the middle both pickups are off, and you shouldn't hear anything through the amp.
If one switch is off and the other is in either on position you'll get that pickup by itself--it doesn't matter which way you slide the switch out of the middle position--it's the same.
The only time the on position matters is when both pickups are on.
If both switches are on and they are both closer to the neck or both closer to the bridge--then the pickups are in phase with each other.
If they are both to the inside or both to the outside--then the pickups are out of phase. So there are two ways to have the switches so the pickups are in phase & two ways to have them out of phase--again it doesn't matter which way.
So here are all the settings..
Both pickups off
Bridge pickup on & Neck pickup off
Bridge pickup off & Neck pickup on
Both pickups on in phase
Both pickups on out of phase.
Here's what Reverb has to say about these cool guitars...
Introduced just before the CBS takeover of Fender, the Mustang was part of a redesign of Fender's line of student level guitars which included the Duo-sonic and Musicmaster. The Mustang offered somewhat more sophisticated electronics than earlier student guitars and also featured a 24-inch scale length. In its earliest era, the Mustang was available in a shorter 22 1/2-inch scale length, but these guitars are very uncommon. Since being discontinued in 1982, the Mustang has been reissued a number of times, and has found some popularity among alternative and indie rock players.

This cool Fender guitar has a full 24 inch scale neck. The nut measures 1 11/16 inch. Very manageable neck with a nice round C profile. The action is set whisper low for really fast playing. Our Techs do a great job!
As cool as the guitar is, the original case is also fantastic. It’s the Original Fender Orange Plush lined Hard Shell Case …The latches, handle and hinges are all correct and still operating, thou they can be glitchy. They still work but have to work with them... The cool Fender Orange lining is still there and in good shape. Even the neck restraint strap is still with the case..What a time capsule this guitar and case is… Its old. I would get a modern case to travel in. This cool vintage case belongs under your bed to keep it together.
This guitar is being sold as-is no returns as its vintage and used. However, I have been hand picking my customers guitars for close to 20 years now and they have all loved the instruments I found them. This cool Fender will certainly not be an exception.
Thanks for checking out our cool guitars …
