Retrofret Stock # 7843. Fender Mustang Model Solid Body Electric Guitar (1966), made in Fullerton, California, serial # 115433, Daphne Blue lacquer finish, alder body, maple neck with rosewood fingerboard, original grey hard shell case. This is a very attractive and extremely well-preserved 1966 Fender Mustang, made less than two years after the model's debut in the second half of 1964. The Mustang was Fender's classiest student guitar, basically a Duo-Sonic with the new "Dynamic vibrato" tailpiece and a floating bridge. The model was instantly successful and has proved a timeless favorite of countless garage bands from the 1960s and '70s until today. The body on this example sports a lovely blue lacquer finish with some yellowing and fade and the pickguard is laminated plastic with a white pearloid top layer. The serial number dates to early 1966 with the pots coded to the 42nd week of 1965. The early Mustang remains an American classic and still a great deal in an original 1960s Fender guitar!Overall length is 39 1/2 in. (100.3 cm.), 12 1/4 in.
