Vintage 1966 Fender Mustang Dakota Red with OHSC
Truetone Music has been selected to take in a special collection of instruments from a very special long-time customer and friend of ours. A collector of only unique, rare, vintage and high-end guitars & amps, he amassed a serious collection of these years. For the first time, these pieces are available on the market for the first time.
One of the more interesting pieces is this 1966 Mustang in Dakota Red. These are rarely seen, especially in this condition, and intact as an all-original vintage piece.
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.
