Vintage 1965 Fender Mustang Stripped Natural With OHSC
We just took in a super cool piece of Fender history: this 1965 Mustang. It was originally Daphne Blue at birth, but at some point the finish was stripped off so it's just raw, natural woodl (a popular thing to do in the decade known as the 70's). It's super cool with a unique vibe and plenty of vintage appeal. The original hardshell case is included too.
The Mustang first debuted in 1964, towards the tail end of the "pre-CBS" era. It was an effort to upgrade the student line of guitars, and became a gateway to more grown up Fender models like the Strat, Tele, Jazzmaster and Jaguar. Originally a 22.5" scale, it soon changed to a 24" scale which became more popular. Over the years, the Mustang has gained status as a cult favorite, and used by players as diverse as Kurt Cobain, Adrian Belew, Frank Black and Bilinda Butcher.
