Fender '65 Mustang Electric Guitar

Fender

PURE '60S MUSTANG STYLE
A must-have for Mustang fans everywhere. The Classic Series ’65 Mustang authentically evokes the very first full model year of Fender’s most popular student-model guitar, which later went on to great pro-level success in the hands of artists such as David Byrne, John Frusciante, Kurt Cobain, Todd Rundgren and Adrian Belew, to name only a few. It’s ideal for those who aspire to original-era Mustang sound and style, with a poplar body in great mid-’60s finishes, shorter scale length, dual pickups with versatile switching and much more.

AUTHENTIC FENDER TONE AND STYLING
Pure and simple, this instrument features classic Fender tone and styling, evoking and honoring the timeless Fender mainstays that came before it and contributed crucial DNA. From the quietest chord to the loudest note, from the rear strap button to the top of the headstock, it’s the very essence of classic Fender design.

24" SCALE LENGTH
This classic shorter scale was originally offered during the 1960s on Fender classics such as the Jaguar and Mustang guitars. Originally adopted to appeal to those already comfortable with the slightly shorter scales of guitars by other makers, the 24" scale remains a classic Fender design element still offered today.

7.25" FINGERBOARD RADIUS
The fingerboard radius describes the amount of curvature across the width of the fingerboard. This instrument has a 7.25" fingerboard radius, with a more pronounced "vintage-style" curvature typical of Fender guitars from the 1950s, ’60 and ’70s. It’s the way to go for those who grew up with vintage instruments or simply prefer the feel of greater fingerboard curvature.
