From Our Research Team:
Small is BeautifulThe Squire Vintage Modified Mustang® solidbody electric guitar is proof positive that small is beautiful. Originally intended by FENDER® as a student model, the Mustang quickly took its place at the table with the rest of the adults, being played to perfection by such guitar giants as John McLaughlin and Adrian Belew - who used the Mustang's shorter 24" scale and pickup-switching tone mojo to their advantage. OK, so the Mustang's an icon. But what's even cooler about this Squire is that it's an amazingly affordable icon. See just how incredible small can be - with the Squire Vintage Modified Mustang®.
Squire Vintage Modified Mustang Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
Grab your piece of electric guitar history
The Squire Vintage Modified Mustang has quite a backstory. Sporting a reduced body size and shorter scale, the Mustang was originally one of Fender's "student models" when it was introduced in August of 1964. To put Fender's timing in perspective, the Beatles were beginning their second visit to the US, and Fender was intent on capitalizing on the guitar mania that was sweeping the nation's youth. The Mustang may have been aimed at younger players, but this little guitar had other ideas, and was headed for the big time. Today, despite its original "student" designation and delightfully downscale price, the Mustang's reputation as a serious axe is bolstered by its mpressive roster of guitar greats, including Adrian Belew, David Byrne, Kurt Cobain, John Frusciante, Todd Rundgren, Thurston Moore, and John McLaughlin (that's right - it's a Mustang you hear Mr. McLaughlin playing on most of his trendsetting Miles Davis sessions). 'Nuff said.
This Mustang is spec'd for your playing pleasure
Squire has spec'd their Vintage Modified Mustang with a pair of Duncan Designed Mustang pickups, routed through dual pickup switches. this arrangement puts you in command of an arsenal of in- and out-of-phase single-coils sounds. You get a superb array of tonal colors, from crisp and clear to warm and chunky. You'll also appreciate the Mustang as a lead instrument. First off, bending strings on this baby is effortless. The Mustang's distinctive slinkiness is facilitated by a 24" scale - noticeably shorter than the Strat's 25.5 inches - and even a tad shorter than the Les Paul's. Add to this 6105 frets and a 9.5" radius rosewood fingerboard, and you'll soon discover lead-playing abilities you never knew you had. And when it's time to whammy, there's a dynamic vibrato tailpiece with vintage-style tremolo arm standing by. Comfort? The Mustang's diminutive offset-waist body fits you like a glove, whether you're seated or standing.
