A friend just got a Fender Mustang RI with P90s and he loves it. I got wondering, any of you have a good estimate of the % of Fender Mustangs with P90s?

Love the one yer playin',

They've been making Mustangs since 1964, I think.

There were two other models with P90s besides the current ones, one was Chinese, the other American with a laminated wood top. There probably weren't that many of either one of those made.

Say 1%?

(actually considering some of the current Mustangs are Duo-Sonic IIs, if you count all the Duo Sonic IIs and Musicmaster IIs, you'd probably get something like 0.something%)

The Chinese ones were part of the Modern Player range:



The American ones were part of the limited edition "10 for 15" releases that came out in 2015:

It was the "Shortboard" mustang.

There was also a "Longboard" strat:

Thanks, FM. My Mustang is a '65 and I know for sure there were 0% Mustangs made with P90s. Of the reissue Mustangs, aka "fakir Mustang" (No, I truly respect the RIs most of which have improvements over the vintage Mustangs) I'm just curious that I'd not noticed the P90 models and, as you and Bear Boy suggest, it seems not too many were made...maybe 1% of all RIs?

Other estimates?

Which makes a lot of sense, since Mustang bodies are longer, and Strat bodies are shorter (and wider).
