Fender Japan Rare Model 1966 Reissue Mustang Factory Vintage White 1997 CIJ


This is a Mustang we don't see often. It's a CIJ-era Vintage White 1966 Reissue Mustang (O-Serial CIJ 1997 -2000). The main Fender Japan Mustang run reissues were MG65, MG69 and MG73. Very few ’66 Mustangs were ever built. The ones that were built were solely for the Japanese domestic market, so you won’t see too many outside Japan. Alder was used for these guitars, which makes them a little heavier, but they feel good! Very sturdy. To be honest, aside from the tonewood used and the MG-66 designation there aren't many differences between this and the MG65. It’s true to the vintage Fender ’65-66 spec, with the slab alder body, 7.25 radius Indian rosewood fingerboard and white button tuners. This one plays beautifully, very resonant and responsive with a good balance and plenty of Mustang attitude. It's has been played so if you like sterile Mexican Fenders this stang it aint for you. However if you are looking or a fantastic vintage spec Japanese built machine in an awesome factory colour with plenty of subtle vintage ageing then look no further! Neck is dead straight, truss rod fine, plenty of life left in the frets and no mods, breaks, repairs or routing. Structurally and electrically sound. A good solid slab of alder for this one giving a total weight of 3.5kg. There is some light playwear commensurate with the year: all the plastics have yellowed nicely, some scuffing on the body, a few bumps and paint nicks etc, light discolouration of the white etc. although nothing too harsh. Complete with original period correct Fender Japan softcase and original tremolo arm.
