this beautiful work horse destroys the 65 reissue and the 1990's reissue mustangs
those guitars seem horrible and completely different in sound and feel
although the 65 reissue was a beautiful guitar and a huge improvement from prior mustangs

i love this guitar front to back

here are some more pictures of it
also my 1975p3 univox and ltd. edition twin reverb amp / pedal board

Probably a '66 - the F plates began in December 1965 (http://www.guitarhq.com/65strat.html). However the pearloid fret markers look a bit 1970s, it could be a mutt. You will be able to get a date off the neck heel, most likely. Looks damn cool.

Looks slab, worn slab but slab. So body could be from 1964 to around 1967 or newer Japanese beat up special.

Bridge is 1970s or Japanese.

f-plate means it's not earlier than late 1965, but they had them in the 1970s too.

Possibly a parts 'stang.

It comes with the other pickup too?

The dots look quite similar to the ones on the neck I just got from Nick and that's a '65. Looking at the photos the strings look really close to the edge of the fretboard, it could just be the photos or an A width neck.

It's a great looking guitar. I've always wanted a black and a sunburst Mustang.

The neck has white Kulson style tuner pegs isn't that pre 70s
The pup is dated 1966
Highly highly doubt any of its new
I had a long convorsation and the seller is reputable

I purchased this 850$ shipped

Including case and original pickup to replace hot rail

I will post more pics tonight maybe will help
In better dating it

Does any one use or like a sd hot rail on bridge position


How will his compare to a jap 65 ri ?

You'll be way happier with that beauty than a reissue. As for the pickup I tend to mainly use the neck pickup for cool Fender tones so I personally think it's cool to have something really different in the bridge position. I have a lil '59 single coil sized humbucker in my '65 Mustang.

That's a good price for that guitar. Especially compared to UK prices.

Any idea what that scar on the front is from?
My guess is a bucking bronco sticker.

It will stay as is , I love the way this looks and the sticker contrasts the chrome hard wear and black paint also,the pick ups contrast the paint and wear

I fully agree with Thomas. I never had a S/H guitar until I got my Jag-Stang. Believe it or not, I'm getting a good sound by combining the bucker (normal position) with the neck pup (out of phase). The bucker provides clarity while the single coil adds warmth. Perfect base for effects. I'm now a believer in the "put a bucker in the bridge" theory.

I have always wanted to try a lip stick pick up in bridge on a mustang the lip stick on my silvertone 1448 just gets a really unique tone with fuzz

But I'm pretty stoked that there is a hot rail already installed
