The color really changes a lot based off of lighting. A LOT. It is kind of crazy. It can go from dark blue, to green, to light blue, to teal, etc depending on the amount of light and if it is yellow or white light.

My only complaints on it are it was advertised as used, but in mint condition. There are a couple small (smaller than a dime) scratch marks by the bottom on the back and by the tummy cut. Not a big deal at all, but not mint. It also has poly checking. (Those lines that go with the seams and grain that you can see at an angle. Some of the pictures show it.) Also not a big deal, but something I would have recommended the seller to mention to avoid dicks trying to get money out of him. I am not bothered by them. If I had paid the $900 plus I see these sometimes go for, I would have been mad, but for $600, no biggie. (Especially with a Fender hard case. I LOVE those things.)

I am pretty thrilled with it. Pretty light weight since I have been mostly playing my Jaguars lately. Stock pickups are pretty nice. Smile

It also has a great resonance and sustain to it which impresses me.

I am kind of a Japanese Fender junkie. Most of my (too many) guitars are Japanese Fenders. I like their necks and finish quality. I have tried several American Fenders and for whatever reason they just don't feel right to me. (And often cost two or three times as much new.)

Don't get me wrong, they sound and feel ok, just not two or three times the price ok. Smile

Unbelievable. If you ever consider selling down the road, let me know.

This looks to be almost my perfect Mustang. Am jelly!

I'd take this thing over it, but, this is almost perfect!

Totally understandable. Smile I would likely do the same although I really like Japanese neck shapes. Smile

I can't immediately think of a Japanese Fender I didn't like. (I own three)

That colour is like aged nitro LPB, really nice. I think I like that better than the Fender LPB (Cobain Mustang)

If that came LH I would insta-buy one.


bravo
