Vintage Guitar Magazine Spotlights the Fender Competition Mustang

Vintage Guitar recently re-posted an online piece on the Fender Competition Mustang that was originally published in their July 2006 issue.

The article talks about the heavy influence muscle cars had in the creation of the entry-level model introduced in the late ’60s.

“The Fender Mustang already had an automotive connection,” said Vintage Guitar. “But the introduction of the Competition model in ’69 solidified the relationship (competition, racing, Shelby). And of course, its racing stripes were very similar to those found on Shelby Mustangs.”

Competition Mustangs replaced regular Mustangs around 1970, but were discontinued around 1973. The Mustang still exists today in the form of the Classic Series ’65 Mustang, and the signature Kurt Cobain Mustang.
