    Best Mustang reissue

    Fender Classic '65 MustangPublished on 12/24/11 at 12:27
    I think Mexican made. Original bridge and control set with the tone switches. Two single coils. Alder body I assume. Rosewood finger board. This is about as close to spec as you are going to get to a 65 original mustang. In fact it's really the only mustang model I know of that's anywhere near vintage spec. So props to that.

    UTILIZATION

    I want to say right now that I think these are still overpriced. My dad had a 68 mustang and the truth is they were made back then as beginner guitars. They were made to be very cheap to produce, so these should truthfully be closer to half the price that they are. I blame the "kobain factor" but you can call it what you will.

They were made to be very cheap to produce, so these should truthfully be closer to half the price that they are. I blame the "kobain factor" but you can call it what you will.

    Still this is a well made guitar and I don't have any big complaints about the playability. Tuners are good and all the hardware is solid for the price. The wood seems decent enough. I've never been a fan of the glossy finishes Fender does but that's a preference thing.

    SOUNDS

    I play in a surf rock act sometimes and I bought this just for that. The pickups sound pretty darn good for what they are. A set of vintage repros is pricey so most players will probably stick with these and I think they are nice. Not too muddy and not too bright. They have the mustang vibe down pretty well. It's very spanky in its own way. Perfect for what I'm doing. I use tons of reverb.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Despite all the praise I've given this guitar, the truth is that it's overpriced. But people really want these and the market commands the price. It doesn't have enough bells and whistles to cost a grand. That doesn't mean it's a bad guitar. There's beauty in simplicity.

    The guitar is trslgre and shape the go gnrale trs handy.
    Handling microphones be somewhat subtle to see Drout dpart but will be overcome.

    SOUNDS

    The style of music is oriented rock or Funck.
    Trs a good sustain.
    I play on two apmplis lamps, a config Marshall JFX1-JMP1-20/20-baffle1960 for blues and rock and a Fender "The Twin - Red Knobs" the same as for Popa Chuby its plain more jazzy.
    The sound remains the trs Fender "twang" of the great tlcaster ml mdiums trs dominant.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 3 months.
    I prfre is the facilties and lgret games. the quality of stringed instruments is superb. The sound of fender MODELS Japanese is better than any Mexican fawn.
    What EHJV a little is the lack of power of the microphones.
    The ratio quality price is excellent. This cute pluttrserve the study with the original pickups may lower cot, by simply changing the pickups to be a real bomb.
    I do it again this choice without hsit.

    Fender Classic '65 MustangPublished on 01/06/08 at 03:59
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Good for the features I think we made it around. Mine was more a DiMarzio Tone Zone S in position bridge. Channel super comfortable, the bridge does not displease me more than that, because of some opinion after some can not get used to it. I find it so bizare that ca.

    UTILIZATION

    Channel super comfortable as I said just before. But that is a short scale is very lightweight application adaptation time, but nothing too serious. We have access to acute is good, but my personal crazy I never fingers. It's a guitar very well balanced, not too heavy, and super nice as you know already I guess.

    To compare the gameplay with a Fender Start, I would say that the Mustang has its own little character it has, and must be taken differently than if a stratum, it is unique and that's its charm fai.
    slight negative by the selectors that his May super well done nothing serious

    SOUNDS

    This guitar is truly magical. By adding a tone zone in bridge, that's exactly what I wanted. I was looking for was the sound of live and loud nirvana. In ba done.
    Its very round, warm mids with a cry and bass as'en pee on it, just be a slight lack of highs sometimes. I change the micro bridge because even if it has a very good clear sound rendering, and rendering adequate distortion, even when it lacked the precision of the potato. Now it's really nickel. The neck pickup is delicious: round, precise, and this little fender its type that everyone loves. I play a Fender 212R (see that even with the transistor carément it sounds good) and a distortion pedal of Amt Electronics Tube Platinum (a PGA so).

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a week. And really all I like about this guitar. What I like most is it has its grain as well as in plain distortion, even with the tone zone and it keeps his personality so much better now. I do not avai try before you buy, I just trusted Mr. Kurt Cobain who lionized the mustang and he was right. The value for money could be better but I think is appropriate.
