I love that all these years later you kept your jag-stang. How many of us did not?

I did not. I had a Fiesta red one.

Yep, the tuners might be a worry. Looks like there aren’t any better ones available that don’t require drilling. Or did someone find any?

Ok, I took the Duo Sonic apart completely, cleaned it, de-coroded it, fixed a few poor connections (it was not used for over 20 years), and now it.. well, would love to say it rocks, but actually it surfs. It has this somewhat mellow surfy sound when played clean. Whoa, what a surprise. The tuners are doing fine so far, but that might be coincidence as I did the worst stringing job ever. Yep, now it really needs a Bigsby.

first post here (thanks for adding me!). here are my current offsets (though I've had a few others over the years I've sold.. Jazzmaster, Jaguar and Mustang alike). I love the 24" scale - it just feels the most comfortable to me. Lefties as everyone knows are hard to find, and I'm really thrilled with the Jaguar especially. the new Mustang is among the nicest MIJ guitars I've ever played.

Hello, long-time lurker, first-time poster here.

Here's my trio of Mustangs -



Presented in order of purchase those are -
    Harley Benton MS60PB
    Squier Bullet Mustang
    Squier Vintage Modified Mustang




The Harley Benton was stock when I bought it. I've added a "Bigsby" style tailpiece, a roller bridge and a set of Artec P18 pickups. The stock pickups were okay but I had a hankering for a guitar like this featuring lipstick pickups. It plays and sounds great, especially on the neck pickup which I tend to use exclusively on this guitar.
I got an amazing deal on it via eBay it and it's actually a very well made & playable guitar, I gig with it a lot.
Cosmetically, I've re-painted the headstock and added a custom (vanity) logo. Came up with the idea of calling it a Twangylectro, inspired by the lipsticks, also added a pair of "tasteful" pearloid-capped control knobs.
Having bought that one and modded it to my requirements, I thought I'd scratched my shortscale itch, but then I saw & fell in love with the surf green Bullet.

The Bullet has been modified by the addition of a set of Vanson P90 style pickups, a pearloid pick guard (I love pearloid guards) and a "half-tele" style bridge. I've also painted the headstock to (almost) match and added the custom logo (which is a play on my name and the word 'Mustang').
These are astoundingly good guitars for the money, I bought mine brand new at list price from a guitar shop in London. Don't grudge a penny of its cost.
I'm not a huge fan of humbuckers and especially dislike the look of the exposed polepiece ones that the guitar came with (although they do actually sound very good in spite of my dislike). The P90's sound amazing, this is one of the best sounding guitars I've ever owned, the volume balance from string to string is just perfect. The brass saddles on the Wilkinson bridge really make it ring.
There's a lot of love out there for these little guitars and I'm very much a fan, the surf-green finish is just gorgeous.

I've only had the VM Mustang for just over a week now. Still getting used to the idiosyncracies of the bridge and trem' system.
A previous owner had apparently written on it with a Sharpie, then tried to remove that using some kind of solvent. Hence the stickers. They had also hand painted the priginal tort' pickguard, so that had to go. I have indulged my love of pearloid with the replacement. I'd love to have this re-finished in surf-green but the sonic blue (or what's left of it) is also very nice.
Other than that, I'm going to keep it stock. It plays and sounds great, I have no issues at all with the 'Duncan Designed' pickups, they can sound really fruity and full voiced as well as that trebly Mustang spank. I'll take the thing out for a gig, as is, soon.





Prior to discovering the wonderful world of shortscale guitars, my electrics are Telecaster and a late 90's Danelectro U2 reissue, I also have an Italia Modulo Typo3.
I'd LOVE to get a Jaguar (Fender or Squier, the surf-green VM Jag is pretty much a pin-up for me) just a matter of having the funds when one becomes available.
