It was my first electric guitar, bought in 1966. It was all I could afford. I wanted a strat but they cost over $200 (remember this is 1966). If stolen, I would not buy another Mustang, I would buy a USA Strat (or a Gibson Les Paul). The Mustang was a student guitar in its day, and it still is. In addition to the Mustang, (and a Takamine Acoustic), I also own a Hamer 2004 Artist Korina with P-90 pick-ups. The action is not as good as the Mustang. The tone is fuller and darker, but not as clear as the Mustang in the treble range. I prefer the Hamer's sound. The Hamer is not a student guitar; you can hear the difference when you play the Hamer and Mustang back to back. The Mustang's best feature is its playability. If you can't play fast on a Mustang you are never going to be able to play fast.

Where Obtained: Sam Ash in 1966
Features:
The is a USA made guitar, its production date is march 1966. the body is alder, with a Dakota Red finish. It has a rosewood finger board, low fret bars, 22 frets and 2 single coil pickups. The Vibrato bar is unusable because once used,the guitar needs to be retuned. Interesting set up with 2 slide switches, a volume nob and a tone nob.
Playability:
Best action of any guitar I own, has .010 strings. Fast Fast Fast
Sound Quality:
I play it on a Fender Hot Rod delux. Crystal clear, but a bit trebly. It hums (but its a single coil). It is a Rock and Roll guitar.
Durability:
Well it lasted over thirty years. Still tunable, just don't use the vibrato.

I dislike my guitar at the moment, but it does its job well for what i use it for, i am currently saving up for a better amp a jackhemmer pedal and an ESP EX.
Price: $0.00
Where Obtained: a blind man
Features:
US made, Naple neck and i have no idea what the body is made from. it has 21 frets and 6 strings, it has 3 controls, 1 volume, 2 tone and hs S/S/H pickups i dunno what the electronics are, what pickups are used but its nice
Playability:
Its ok but it's not as good as maybe ans ESP. i like it tho, koz it works and sounds ok sometimes
Sound Quality:
I use a sunn st-15 and i play metal and punk music on it, it gives an ok sound with my amp, but im looking into a bigger amp koz when i make it as loud as i need, it distorts it, so im gunna get a bigger amp so that i can use the same volume, but it'll sound cleaner. i've only used it on stage and it is ok
Durability:
Well its ok for this, but the strap locks are terribe and it keeps coming off (big problem!!)
