1969 Fender Mustang

1969, bronco, duo sonic, guitar, music master, Mustang

This mustang has been in the family for some time. It was given to my uncle as a “box of parts”. The body was terribly routed out. The neck is straight but the wood is discolored under the clear. Anyway for a long time it sat with a red acrylic finish, a custom white pick guard, and two tele thin line pickups. My uncle had chandler guitars make a custom pearloid pick guard and he wired in 3 Kramer dual rail pickups with 3 mustang switches that make them single, off, or humbucker. The pick guard was made to standard size and it didn’t quite cover the routing. So fast-forward 10 years, strip the body, burn everything with a torch, and have custompickguards.com cut out my design pick guard, now it’s a smoking little guitar. No pun.

 

And this is how it looked before.
