You're about to witness a piece of history - a 1966 Fender Mustang in the iconic Daphne Blue, accompanied by a non-original Fender case. This guitar is a genuine work of art, harking back to the early days of Fender. It's in good condition and operates perfectly, with some expected signs of wear like scratches, dings, and finish checking. At one point, it underwent some modifications, including non-original tuners, but the original tuners have been lovingly restored. The ferrel holes were slightly enlarged as a result. Taking all into consideration, I'd rate its condition at a solid 7.5 out of 10.
Most impressively, almost everything on this guitar is original, except for the frets, nut, pickguard, and switches. There are no cracks, repairs, or underlying issues to note. The vintage '66 Fender neck has a feel all its own, truly unique and exceptional. It's straight and provides an outstanding playing experience. The original frets are in remarkable condition. Importantly, there's no buzzing or dead spots to worry about.
The case, while not the original, does its job perfectly and is in excellent condition.
For a closer look, be sure to watch the video provided. This guitar is more than an instrument—it's a piece of Fender's legacy.
This 1966 Fender Mustang, with all its history and character, is a treasure for collectors and players alike. Don't let this opportunity pass you by.
