    FYI, I recently (3 weeks ago) purchased a new Competition Mustang Reissue. I love it!! A really fun guitar to have around.

    My favorite Mustang player was Lowell George, the original lead player for Little Feat. He used to play slide with a Craftsman spark plug socket, and was a great and original slidemaster!

    sparklejet,

    congrats on the competition. i started restoring a '65 mustang around Jan 2002 and finished it in Nov 2002. when I got it, it had been spray painted white over the original dakota red. so i stripped it clean and resprayed it surf green. I bought new plastic in white (i.e. covers, pickgard, switches) put it all together and it looks and sounds great. When I sprayed it I put about six layers of white, but only three layers of green, so when it checks and wheres in it should look pretty sweet. it's funny i put a lot of time into getting the surface perfect, but i can't wait for it start looking used. the neck I left completely original, scars and all.

    p.s. i just checked out that site, put it in me favorites, arrr!

    hey,

    it's funny how i ended up buying a mustang, because up until a few weeks ago, i'd never even seen one in person. don't know why, i just never had. i walked into a small music shop near my house, and they had 2 brand new reissues! needless to say, within 20 minutes i bought one!!

    that sounds like a cool project! i know what you mean about wanting to restore something, yet somehow have it still look "old." i haven't been taking my mustang out to gigs yet - i'm not sure if i really want to. tone wise, the stock pickups just can't compare to some of my other guitars, and i'm hesitant to replace them.

    but nothing beats occasionally rocking out with the mustang...people are always like "damn!" love it.

    and yes, that site is a pretty good one, for mustang/jaguar/jazzmaster discussions. you'll get any answers you need there!

    later,

    joe

    mustang/jaguar/jazzmaster ..........all 3 are fun guitars with nice sounds...but i think personally i like the jazzmaster best--nifty kinda haunting sounds.

    I have always liked em but shy away from the bridge. How do they hold up? Look flimsy to me. Not Fender`s best design?
