Mustang ´69 thoughts

Post by supersonicjazzmaster » Wed Oct 30, 2019 1:07 pm

Hi everybody,

here someone is selling a 69 Comp. blue, faded to green. Nice!

https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-anz ... 18-74-4831


I think about getting it...
What do you think about?
Pickups original?
The screw which fixes the trem arm is not to move... ? (the seller told me)
The trem bar is not the original?
The saddle looks strange?

Thanks!

The nut is very strange. A portion of the fretboard has been removed to accommodate that larger nut.

Vibrato arm is... wild, but if it works then fine.

Can't see the bridge very well on my phone but it looks like parts are missing.

But there's a lot i like about it. Probably not worth the asking price, maybe a few hundred € less

Thanks for reply.
I was in contact with the seller.
The guitar is sold for 1800€ (plus the original grey case) to Spain.
I am not unhappy at last... I was sceptic about the nut and trem bar...

it looks kinda cool, but 1800 is too much. Bridge is weird.
