Here's a great example of a Fender 1966 Mustang in Dakota Red. Some scratches & checking, but all original with the OHSC as well! All original but no tremolo arm. Will need a re-fret soon.
Originally released in 1964, the Mustang was the third in Fender's student series-following the Musicmaster and Duo-Sonic-but the first offset to be featured in the range. The original Mustang was a dual-pickup, 22-fret, medium-scale guitar and it has an offset waist like a Jazzmaster and was the first of the student models to feature a vibrato system. The 1966 Mustang did get the larger headstock typical of the CBS-acquisition era, an additional patent number on the headstock and “F key” tuners with white plastic knobs that had a squarer shape.
