Amazing Guitar!

(5.0)
fullspectrum on April 14, 2014 (updated April 15, 2014)
Blues Alternative Rock Classic Rock Heavy Metal

To start off with I have everything from a 2011 Gibson Les Paul Custom to American Stratocasters to Japanese Kurt Cobain Mustangs. The quality on this guitar is very good and in my opinion is on par with the quality of the Japanese Mustangs of which I am very happy with. Actually some things are nicer on this guitar like the fretboard which is a darker rosewood.

This guitar is pretty much flawless and I am VERY picky with fine details. One thing that always turned me off cheaper guitars was the poor finishing of the truss rod hole area. They would leave debris or finising wax in there and clear coat over it and it just looks like crap. Not so with this guitar!

As for playability, she plays like butter and the pickups sound very clear. The neck has a nice feeling "C" shape to it with a bit of chunk to it but not too much. Mine also has a bit of weight to it and feels heavier than the Japanese Cobain Mustangs which I like. It feels solidly built. Overall you just can't go wrong with this guitar. It looks stunning especially sporting the p-90's which makes it somewhat unique for a Mustang.

On a final note, if you can't find a Mustang Case for this guitar you can use a Stratocaster Pro Series tweed case with some "massaging" or pushing in of the foam at the top and bottom of the case. I have the Fender Mustang case as well and I prefer the look of the Fender Pro series tweed case with its plush orange lining. It has a bit of room on the sides with the Mustang inside but still fits snug. This "mod" does work... it just takes about 5-10 minutes of pushing the foam in where the headstock and the bottom of the guitar contact the inside of the case. This guitar looks drop dead gorgeous sitting in this case.

My favourite guitar by far

(5.0)

The modern player Fender Mustang is by far my favourite guitar. For the price, you get so much back and I've never not enjoyed playing this guitar. Considering it's associated with grunge music mainly, I've managed to use it for a few different styles of music including blues-rock, so it's really durable. Most of all, i love how compact and small it is, it's like a small, sleek battle tank. All of my friends are jealous too I might add.

Fender Modern player Mustang will not stay in tune

(1.0)
trackerdan on December 5, 2013
Professional Blues R&B Jazz Rock Classic Rock Folk Country

I purchased this guitar a few weeks ago from my local GC. After a couple weeks of trying to get this beast to stay in tune, I have given up and I am ready to take the guitar back and get a refund. The original Mustang would never stay in tune and neither does this one or any of the other Mustangs with the same vibrato bar I would imagine. This guitar sounds and plays phenomenal; but it completely tanks because of that old school vibrato bar. You would think after 50 years they would have figured it out? It's just sad.
