I'm learning this. The Spiderman Mustang kinda blew my mind.

I'm hoping to pull the trigger on an OTM compstang, so I'm lookin' through a lot of the Japanese store's stocks. My mind is being repeatedly blown. I knew that Fender Japan had a lot of things that Fender America didn't (and vice versa to be fair).... I didn't realize the extent.

i really haven't looked thru there stuff in YEARS but i remember they had a jazzmaster with a built in speaker, don't remember what it was called but i thought it was the coolest thing with strings. and they had a baritone called "the bottomaster" with a built in fuzz unit, all blacked out, hh jag style, but like 4-5 years early.

I agree. Looks yellow on the neck and white on the body.

I bet it's just white binding but they sprayed the neck tinting over the binding like dumbasses.

Lacquering the side of the binding is quite common dude, even with tint. I dig it

Doesn't lacquer always get put on over binding? Guess they could have matched it to the body lacquer at least.

Also, is it just me or is that blue totally fowl?

yeah, it's just laquer sprayed over the binding. i think they actually did this on vintage fenders too, my jag has traces of it. because it's nitro most of it has worn off over the years.

HEYO

I like it but the f-hole kinda throws the look off in my eyes. I know there's no better place for it, it just doesn't go with the design of a Mustang to me... it doesn't follow any lines in a sleek manner apart from mirroring the angle of the control plate, which is an odd thing for an f-hole to spend it's time doing.
I'd like to see a square-edged bound 3TS Mustang done solid, like those '60s double-bound Custom Teles (like if that sunburst thinline icey posted had a solid guard and no f-hole).
The bound neck can stay any day though.

Was thinking that myself about the f-hole. Some other design might work better. An f-hole work mainly where the basic guitar shape isn't that far removed from a traditional acoustic shape. The further it strays from this the less the f-hole suits. I always think it seems very lazy and unimaginative for makers/designer just to slap on an f-hole roughly where it should go. I went to a instrument museum in Edinburgh and there was massive variation in some of the designs of the sound holes. Also the middle points of the f-hole are meant as markers for the position of the bridge so when the don't line up at all it always looks wrong to me.

It's not like a tele thinline follow the exact design of the standard tele so I'm sure they could move stuff about a bit without totally fucking it. Something along these lines might make more sense?
