Small is Beautiful

The Squier 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 Squier is that it's an amazingly affordable icon. See just how incredible small can be - with the Squier Vintage Modified Mustang.

Grab your piece of electric guitar history

The Squier 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

Squier 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.

Squier's Vintage Modified series: hot mods of classic Fenders

Squier's tapped into something really cool with their Vintage Modified series - hot mods of classic Fenders, all sporting top-shelf materials and components, with primo fit-and-finish. If you're a guitarist or bassist, you'll likely agree that vintage Fender guitars and basses are heavily lusted-after items, so it's great that Fender, in their infinite wisdom, have set their Squier subsidiary free to create hot-rodded and affordable versions of the classics.

  • Lightweight offset-waist basswood body and short scale length give you enhanced playability

Squier Vintage Modified Mustang - Sweet deal

I was recently robbed of all my music gear, which included my Fender Jagstang. I wasn't in a financial position to get another guitar of that price, but I had to have some sort of guitar again! Glad I went with this...for a $ guitar, I absolutely love it. Stays in tune, pickups are high quality, controls all work well and feel good, and the bridge is really similar to the vibrato on my Jagstang (RIP). The bridge did buzz slightly on arrival, but a little adjustment to the action fixed that. All in all, great guitar for a great price.

Best sound for Squier!!

When I bought this guitar, I was kind of skeptical, but I got it out of the box, and it was great. Good paint job, great pickups, tremolo was amazing and the shorter scale is great for beginners and masters alike. This is my favorite.

Really Good For A Squier

I have recently been on a musical kick involving The 1975 and have had a fascination with the Mustangs that the vocalist/rhythm guitarist uses. I took a look at current Fender models, but they were not the original layout, like the Squier is. I'll admit, I was a bit hesitant ordering a Squier guitar, but this one holds its own! It looks beautiful and sounds wonderful! People voiced their concerns about the vibrato. It's not great by any means, but it gets the job done. I also do not plan on really using it, so it was of little concern to me. However, my guitar does not seem to hold tune very well, assumably due to the combinations of a cheap floating bridge and basic tuners. In the future I may replace those to solve this issue. But overall, for $300, it is a pretty great guitar if you want to get that vintage Mustang sound and feel. And as usual, Sweetwater did a wonderful job! I ordered on a Friday and received it that following Tuesday. It was completely set up and even in tune when it arrived! They never disappoint.

'Stang!

Sweet little guitar, just needed a new bridge. Pickups sound very cool! Quality is awesome, tremolo system is horrible, just pretend like it's not an option and you won't be disappointed. I love it, great clean or dirty!

Great guitar but still not a real Fender

I was very enthusiastic when I ordered this guitar. I have the Fender Mustang Bass (made in Japan) in Vintage White and love it! For reference I have smaller hands and like the short scale guitars as I find them easier to play. So I wanted a matching Fender Mustang guitar in the same color but unfortunately they don't currently produce one for sale in the US, only one in Olympic White. So when I saw the Squier in Vintage White I had to have it. Unfortunately they are not the same color, the Squier is much more of a yellow while the Fender is more of a cream color. The build on the squier is solid but don't expect Fender quality. Mine had a small nick on the base of the neck and on one of the tuning pegs. Not a big deal but you expect a new guitar to be blemish free. It sounds good although I might upgrade the pickups at some point. The neck feels good and it plays nice. So now for the worst part, the bridge it's terrible, if you buy this guitar I would highly recommend replacing the bridge with an authentic Fender Mustang bridge. While playing the high E on mine won't stay in the notch on the current bridge despite adjusting the height. Even with these short comings I liked the guitar enough to keep it. It's not the right color, Fender/Squier need to fix that, it had a few dings... but for the money it's still a great guitar. So if you want a mustang but don't wanna shell out almost $1000 pick up the Squier. You still get a lot of guitar for the money just don't expect it to be as refined as a Fender.
