Fender Traditional 70s Mustang MADE IN JAPAN - California Blue / Rosewood
California Blue pocket rocket from Fender. Made in Japan limited edition Mustang model featuring a 70's inspired spec including a matching headstock.
The Fender Traditional Series introduces the Fender Traditional 70's Mustang MADE IN JAPAN, here in California Blue with a matching headstock and Rosewood fingerboard. Made true to the 1970's spec vintage Mustang guitars, this limited run model is a must have weapon for your vintage collection as well as a highly capable writing, gigging and recording guitar.
For the body, this Fender Mustang features a lightweight Basswood shaped into the famous compact, double-cutaway stance. As menacing as this makes the Mustang look, it's real purpose is to increase fret access across the length of the short scale neck and give the player that effortless feel on stage.
The 70's style neck is of a 'U' shape profile and constructed using high quality maple. Complementing this is a genuine Rosewood fingerboard, a choice tonewood used for decades due to it's balanced, rich tonal spectrum and natural EQ qualities that often bring an extra dynamic to an instruments sound.
For the pickups, the traditional Mustang arrangement is present in the form of two Mustang Single Coils housed in the bridge and neck positions. In addition to a single tone and volume knob, the unique Mustang on/off slider is also present while a phase slider switch is also in place so players can toggle between 'in' and 'out' of phase voicings for different sound responses.
