Spotted on Instagram. For real? My inner Death Cab fangirl rejoices.

The hardtail that looks like a Mustang vibrato is something I've been working on as a mod for one of my guitars, so I'm super stoked to see them do that. I'd be glad to see it on all those Mustangs that have hardtail strat bridges.

The rotary switch is a really cool idea, wish I had thought of this!

Fuck, that’s cool. As usual - I learn who another guitarist is only through their sig. gear :D Still tempted to see how difficult it is to unlock some sort of secret vibrato achievement on that guitar; wonder how much routing is under the hood.

A signature Mustang guitar? We've entered uncharted realms.
This made me watch their Rig Rundown. I figured the techs would have done it but Ben and the bassist did it themselves. Kudos to them.
I'm sure some Fender dealer in '64 looked at the new Duo-Sonic II and thought, "That's not a Duo-Sonic. That's a Mustang".

It's a Mustang with a non-standard bridge. We are getting ever closer.
