    Alright folks - time to do something I don't want to do, but should do as I have a chance at a dream vintage purchase. Up for sale is the best Mustang I have owned/played that has been put together with super specific parts. I love this, but have come to the conclusion that I am simply too big to rock a Mustang on the stage... and I'm sure you'll agree with me that this needs to be front and center.

    Neck is from a (16 APR 71 B) 1971 Fender Mustang. It's massive. Biggest 24" scale neck I've seen from Fender. Dark rosewood board. It's rad. New nut, medium jumbos, and era correct tuners. Looks like there used to be a second string tree that was professionally corrected.

    Body is a gold sparkle warmoth that is routed for 2 humbuckers. A small sliver of wood was glued in as an anchor for one for one of the pickguard screws (necessary for the vintage guard). It's lightweight and looks bad ass. Has small cosmetic damage by the super tight neck pocket from my own stupidity.

    Pickups are old Gold Lace sensors. These are Lace's variant of a vintage strat pickup. They sound delicious, are noiseless, and slightly more robust sounding than the typical Mustang pickup. Wired like a normal Mustang.

    Trem unit is a Patent Pending one with an original gold string retainer.

    Bridge is a Mastery. Way better than the modified mustang bridge it started out with.

    Pickguard and control plate are mid 60's.

    No case and no trem arm.

    Price: $800.00 PPG + Shipped firm. I love this guitar, I've put WAY more into this (including some trial and error with buying inferior bridge/trem setups).

    Like a bit over .9" at the nut and and around an inch at the 12th fret. Makes this thing real mean! (Keep in mind, this is a 1971 Fender Mustang we're talking here, so giant relatively speaking).
