I'm sure Fender just use that guitar builder, none of them ever seem to look right.

Strange.. the only Mustang currently listed on the Fender UK site is the Squier VM. The Classic Series 65 and Pawn Shop versions etc have all gone.

CAR is incredible looking. I think because it looks even darker than it normally does. Looks closer to the TVL Jazzmaster to me.

Great. I just bought a fiesta red one, too. But LPB is the rarest of MIJ colors. I'll have to get one. I've decided.

Worth is always a tricky question but new MIJ Mustangs have been that price for a while now.

As far as UK prices go, I thought they were pretty good value. I am sure the "Classic 65" Mustangs were more expensive.

Might seem pricey to you 'Mericans though.

the 65 reissues were priced around £799 last I saw. They were like £500-550 around 2008/9 iirc.

The '65 RI used to be $699 here. You used to find them used for $400-450 easy. Then one day they became $939 and now you can't even buy them anymore.

That LPB Comp Stang, I've actually been looking for it to show up anywhere. I look for it all the time on various used websites. If I have the money, it's absolutely a guitar I will need to get.

Nah dude, my best guess is that FMIC just came in and took everything over, changed the names of the MIJ guitars, and moved everything to a different factory

Pretty sure they will still make Fender Mustangs in Japan (tho could be wrong)
