Fender Mustang

The original Fender Mustang was introduced in 1964 as part of the Fender Student model range, which incorporated the Musicmaster and Duo-Sonic guitars. However, the Mustang would be discontinued in 1982. This was until a host of alternative rock bands, like Nirvana, decided to start using them and Fender decided to re-release the guitar in the 1990s. Demand was high and the Mustang appeared on stages and shop floors everywhere. Fast forward to today and the Fender Mustang is the dark horse of the new Offset guitar Lineup.
