Lefty build. Oil finished

Some more pics of my freshly modded Mustang with modern TOM bridge, locked tremolo, lowered switches, fully shielded, 500k pots and Duncan JB humbucker   .    

Sorry to double post but I have a little update. I am starting to realize that fender short scales are an addiction....   I was loving messing around with the squier mustang I posted and had an itch

Here is a picture of my 1978 Fender Mustang.  I got this brand new from the factory with the hard case.  I still have the cover the the bridge as well.  It is my first proper electric guitar.  I got it when I was 21 years of age.  I have many other electrics.  Les Pauls, Strats, Teles, and others.  I'm getting a noise and it is cutting out.  I need to spray some contact cleaner when I get a chance.  Mustangs are very cool guitars.

Upgraded the 71' Musicmaster to a Bridge Humbucker, this thing is "teh kurtz on Stereoids" - it's a 1988 Peavey P-12 Nitro III humbucker wired with a 3-way switch to give it three different sounds.  So now I have something akin to an "old school Mustang", a interesting pingy weird thing, and then full blown humbucker that sounds pretty much Nirvana circa 93'. - taking it to the band I'm working on next week, might have to see how she does on some In Utero era stuff.

Just received this 2018 mustang prototype from Jim at southpaw guitars. This was the first of a batch of mustangs Fender japan is doing for southpaw. I believe he’s getting 6 in total but the rest won’t be available for a few more months. I’m not sure exactly which model this is (69 or 70s). It has contoured body and a U shaped neck. I’d prefer slimmer profile but this one is still pretty comfortable. It’s just a tad fuller than my 2016 Japanese jazzmaster. Matching headstock is a great touch. Honestly the candy red on this one is just amazing. So much depth in the flake and the color goes from a deep metallic blood red to a bright electric red in direct light. It really just looks great. Pickups are clear and bright. Pots are wired backwards so tone sweep is nonexistent and volume is just slightly better. Easy fix though. Overall fit and finish is superb. Fender Japan just does it right.

Just got the Squire classic vibe Mustang it’s fantastic, always wanted a Fender KC Mustang but never could afford it so I went ahead and got this, I dropped in a Dimarzio tone zone in the bridge, a fender patent tremolo, hipshot locking tuners, new dunlop volume and tone pot .. next for the neck pick up is either this Dimarzio injector Or or Seymour Duncan Dumbucker which I got for free... I know this sounds dumb.. but i think the injector would sound sooo much better than the dumbucker but i hate the fact its vintage white and not white like my tone zone... what do you guys think? I dont know how to upload pics yet!!! Soo i could use help with that too hahah
