the fact that fender actually offered poo brown as a stock color speaks for how bad the late '70s were for guitars.
also, that guitar in present shape is worth about $400.

As will I. With a rosewood neck, there would be too much poo-colour to take in. With the maple, they complement each other nicely.

As was said though, $700 is stupid cash.

I love poostangs! I used to own a Mustang just like this one, except it wasn't missing any parts. I sold it because I prefer my RI Japanese Mustang.

i don't think the price is all that outrageous. it's half the price of a jap 77 RI. and speaking of poo brown paint, there's nowt wrong with this-

It definitely has a seventies vibe. If you buy it, replace the padding in the case with shag carpeting.

The guitar is missing the bridge because the old one had a Gibson style bridge and I haven't got around to ordering a new one.

my 78 is a great playing guitar. I think the era is just hit or miss. and mustangs actually came in more colors in the late 70s than ever before; sunburst, natural, walnut, wine red, antigua, white and black. and it's also the only time the mustang came optional with a maple neck.

maybe i should've just left the words "for guitars" off that sentence. sure you had a lot of options, but few of them are appealing. that being said, i do love the look of shad's old tuxedostang.
i'll admit '70s fenders aren't as bad as people say they are, but their quality control certainly was. you pretty much have to hunt for the good ones. i've played a bunch of '70s strats that had all the functionality of a boat anchor.

sure a cool guitar, that I'd like really. but with the missing parts, and the swapped parts ... dunno, that dude should at least go down the price of a replacement bridge + trem. I wouldn't compare to what a 77 RI costs, as these are not officially imported and 20-30% of the price is shipping. I'd compare to what you usually pay for a actually working 70s stang around where you are.

See now I like the brown on the Telecaster there, but I can't get on with it on the Mustang.
