NGD 1965 Fender Mustang Dakota Red - LEFTY PIC HEAVY

Post by lokalfuz » Fri Oct 16, 2015 11:22 am

Here's my latest eBay snipe. I originally bought it so I'd have a beat up Mustang to swap parts off if I needed to, but I instantly decided I could never do that to this guitar. There's a reason this had so much play wear… because it plays f'n amazing! Super smooth neck, low action, warm pickups. Man oh man, she's a good one. Question though: I'm not sure about the decal on the headstock. Looks too fresh to be original to the guitar, and some of the patent/design numbers are different or in different places when I compare it to my other Mustangs. Could this be because it's a '65, which is the earliest of my other four? I included a picture of my '67 in Dakota Red (her squeaky clean sister) for comparison:

Great score. I never figured those had anything other than the simple "Fender" decal and until I saw the picture of your 67 , thought you supposed a fake due it not being that.

Too cool Lokalfuz. Did you get a case with this one too? The decal looks ok to me, spacing of Pat numbers and all.

If you ever get bored of these old 'Stangs you know where I am ;P

cool, how do the necks compare? I'd guess the 67 is a bit fatter and a tad wider at the nut, or?

No OHSC with this one, unfortunately. I'll definitely look your way if I ever need to sell one or two ;)

The '65 is thinner for sure, most of the finish is wore off so it plays like butter. But that's not to discredit the '67's neck, I like them both, just in a different way!
