Fender 65 Mustang Classic Guitar Review :: Fender Electric Guitars Reviews
Small and fast—like a sports car!
Fender is proud to reissue the Fender 65 Mustang Classic Guitar. Originally designed as a “student model,” the 65 Mustang Classic Guitar 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.
The Fender 65 Mustang Classic Guitar 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, four-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, two 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!
