Up for sale is a sweet 1971 Fender Competition Mustang in Competition Orange. This example features a MAY71B neck stamp, a pair of original grey bottom Mustang pickups with original pots and switches, original bridge / tremolo unit and hardware, original tuning keys and neck plate as well as original body routes. The pickup leads have been cut and then re-soldered at some point and there is evidence of touched up solder joints on the pots and wiring. The body finish has a slightly darker shade of orange than we typically see and has an interesting matte sheen to it. In general, depending on exposure to UV and the life a guitar has lived the shade of Competition Orange can vary greatly from instrument to instrument. The finish on the body of this guitar for all intents and purposes appears original, but also gives us a few question marks as the sheen is different than typically see as is the shade of orange. Nonetheless, a super cool vintage Mustang! Pro setup in house and comes complete with its original hard case.

We want you to be happy with your purchase and we try to represent the condition of all used and vintage products as accurately as possible in our listings.  Every used guitar shows some signs of play wear and vintage models even more so.  We call out all areas of damage or unusual wear, and describe the overall condition based upon what is "normal" for the age of the instrument.  Expect to see minor dings, finish checking, or other evidence of normal use and aging which may not be captured by photography or explicitly mentioned in the listing. 

We recognize that everyone has their own personal standard of what constitutes acceptable wear and tear.  If play wear is especially critical for you, please contact us at the Shop for a complete in-hand description and to answer any questions you may have.  Your satisfaction is of paramount importance to us.
