Fender Classic Series '65 Mustang
We're proud to reissue the '65 Mustang, (which was the first full year of Mustang production). The Mustang was originally one of our 'student models' but was destined for the big time; seen slung over the shoulders of icons like David Byrne, John Frusciante, Kurt Cobain, Todd Rundgren and Adrian Belew to name just a few! This reissue's got great color and cosmetic options, as well as a heightened level of period-correct detailing (body wood, logos, etc.). Available in Daphne Blue (504), Olympic White (505) and Dakota Red (554).
Small and fast-like a sports car! Fender is proud to reissue the '65 Mustang guitar (1965 was the first full year of Mustang production). Originally designed as a "student model," the Mustang was nonetheless destined for greatness, and has been seen slung over the shoulders of great players such as David Byrne, John Frusciante, Kurt Cobain, Todd Rundgren, Graham Coxon and Adrian Belew, to name but a few.
This reissue comes in great vintage colors (Daphne Blue, Olympic White and Dakota Red) with highly period-correct detailing. Features include a poplar body, C-shaped maple neck with 22-fret rosewood fingerboard, four-ply pickguard with classic control plate and pickguard gap, chrome hardware, Fender/Gotoh® vintage-style tuning machines with white buttons, floating bridge with "Dynamic" vibrato tailpiece, two Mustang single-coil pickups with on/off slider switch and in/out phase switch for each pickup, "F"-stamped neck plate and vintage correct headstock and bridge plate logos. A classic revived, and a real beauty at that!
