Years ago (1982 or so), a friend was looking for a cheap guitar and he says I found him this for $40 from a friend of mine. Of course, I remember none of this and am shocked I'd let one pass thru my fingers........ This is the way he got the guitar and has done nothing to it - who ever had it before him screwed up the finish - poor thing!

Recorded a few tunes with it too. Since then, I've been on the lookout for one of my own....... The pups were designed FOR the Mustang, not sounding like any other Fender pup. There's a MID growl that's incredible!
