Here's my latest eBay snipe. I originally bought it so I'd have a beat up Mustang to swap parts off if I needed to, but I instantly decided I could never do that to this guitar. There's a reason this had so much play wear… because it plays f'n amazing! Super smooth neck, low action, warm pickups. Man oh man, she's a good one. Question though: I'm not sure about the decal on the headstock. Looks too fresh to be original to the guitar, and some of the patent/design numbers are different or in different places when I compare it to my other Mustangs. Could this be because it's a '65, which is the earliest of my other four? I included a picture of my '67 in Dakota Red (her squeaky clean sister) for comparison:

It looks like a newer decal but that's no biggie, the guitar looks great!! My 60s Fenders have quite pronounced metallic parts on the decals, like your other one.

Thanks guys. I've been on a lucky run the last year and a half or so. I just figured with lefty stuff, the well can run dry for long stretches, so I'll build my savings back up once it does.
