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.
Price: $145.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Sam Ash in 1966
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.
Best action of any guitar I own, has .010 strings. Fast Fast Fast
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.
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.
Where Obtained: a blind man
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
Its ok but it's not as good as maybe ans ESP. i like it tho, koz it works and sounds ok sometimes
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
Well its ok for this, but the strap locks are terribe and it keeps coming off (big problem!!)
