    Hello again,

    Recently, I've been GASsing for a Fender Mustang. Don't care what year, if its a RI, ect....

    I know they've been discont. by Fender, but I've got a feeling that there are most def. a couple new ones floatin' around.

    ANY BODY know where to get one (for under 1K)?

    Response is greatly appreciated.

    Click on inventory, then scroll down to used Fender. I noticed one on there this morning when I was pervin' on some mighty sweet tele pics.

    I am not in any way affiliated with the seller, yadda yadda yadda.

    You might want to play around with one before you buy. I've got a '67 that sounds nice, but IMHO it doesn't play nearly as well as a Tele or Strat. The smaller scale neck is no problem, but I think the spring loaded tailpiece defeats my bends in a strange way and I just don't seem to be able to dig in and make it sing like a T or an S. I know people that love them, so check it out for yourself :)

    Meh...

    The one on the site was overpriced. 900 is too much for a 60's 'stang. I've seen 'em go for 600. In PERFECT condition. Too bad I didn't have my wallet on my persons THEN, eh?

    Thanks though!

    I thought $900 for one in that condition, with the right case, was a great price. I want to shop wherever you've been going, because I haven't seen ANY vintage mustang's in any condition for for under $750 in three or four years. I remember the good old days, when I saw one for $350 and thought "$350 for a Mustang? That's ridiculous!". They ain't so cheap any more.

    I just sold a '66 white and a '73 candy apple red with racing stipes to a buyer for Hollywood Vintage Gear. I am sorry that we missed connections on this. timing is everything, eh?

    What about the reissues? I've been looking at them, they go for about £400 new (these are the sonic blue models with the racing stripes), they seem to be harder to get hold of as of late.... Unless you're a bass player that is.
