This is a vintage 1967 Fender Mustang electric guitar. This particular 100% all original example, serial number 199456, is in near mint condition and includes the original salt and pepper hard case, original case key, the original coil cable and the original vibrato arm/whammy bar. Arguably the best color combo for this model, the beautifully preserved Olympic White finish is complemented by the incredibly crisp tortoise-pattern celluloid pickguard. This completely intact near mint example would be a great candidate for players and collectors alike. With a super sheen finish and no evidence of even the slightest weather-checking on the body, the only cosmetic blemish was ironically caused by the original coiled cable within the case. Otherwise, this Mustang would be considered perfect.
Serial Number: 199456 (F plate)
Neck Date: OCT 67
Potentiometer Codes: 137-6642
Weight: 6 lbs. 14 oz.
This ’67 Fender Mustang features: the original nitrocellulose Olympic White finish, a slab poplar body, a Maple neck, Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard, a large-profile headstock with the gold transitional Fender logo, “F” tuning machines with plastic buttons, (2) grey bobbin single coil pickups, dynamic Fender vibrato bridge and tailpiece, and the original Salt and Pepper hard shell case.
As briefly mentioned, this example is in very excellent, exceedingly fine, 100% all original condition. It is in perfect working condition, with no evidence of neck wear nor buckle rash. All electronics were lightly serviced to reduce scratchy pot noise, and now function perfectly. It includes the original tremolo arm as well. The black marks along the treble cutaway horn are from the coiled cable “melting” through the original finish to reveal the sunburst undercoat. This is all too common, and it the only cosmetic blemish on this otherwise pristine guitar.
