Trying to figure out 2.) if it's competition or not


If that neck is original to the body, then it was a Competition Mustang. All 1969-73(or 74?) Mustangs had the stripe.


I can only assume it is, however, it is always possible they are not. I'm hoping it is a legit Competition, b/c frankly the racing stripe is badass..lol.

But, there are some specks of powder blue under the paint job; and from what I've seen, the blue coloring of the Comp Stang is darker than that.

I guess it's possible that some of the very early 69's may have come in the old colors, but it's been my understanding that they switched from slab to contoured bodies and from the three original solid colors(Dakota Red, Olympic White, and Daphne Blue) to the competition scheme around the same time. If contoured, solid-colored 69 Mustangs exist, I haven't seen one.

its def a mustang, and yea, it would be grand if you could turn it back into a compstang. i would actually suggest using 800 grit wet sandpaper and mineral spirits and sanding away, perhaps the original finish is still under all that crap and it could look kinda cool if you could somehow maintain most of the original paint.
i would suggest a total restoration of the thing, but... i guess at the same time it could be sort of a head ache granted that black plate thingy in the back and if you really wanted to take the time to fill and do that to it all.

Yeah, I was thinking of how to approach the saw hole. My best guess would be to somehow find the same wood and cut a circle and glue and sand.

And, would it be too much to try to do gold plated hardware?

Maybe you could just leave the hole and just put in a fleshlight, it would really help with the rock faces.

Yes, but bear in mind that it's only 1.5" thick, so your cock would have to be pretty short...

Just cut a hole in the pickguard to allow for that extra hand in playing

You'll get those special harmonics that way.

Well, after scraping a few layers of paint off the inside volume/tone pot opening, I have found the original color is Competition Orange. Apparently, the guitar has been at least the striped coloring, previous to that green, somewhere in there powder blue, and what looks like red, though the red could be from a paint reaction to the orange.

Hi Everybody, Thanks for letting me onto your website. I joined to ask for help with some clues on figuring out specific on a 69 Fender Mustang I've been sitting on for 20 years. But, I can't seem to figure out this uploader . As soon as I am approved to upload I will get pics up here.
