What an ugly piece of #### this is. But I have to admit, if this wasn't so much, I would buy it. And rip that stupid TOM out, and those ridiculously ugly pick-ups.

For future users

This is an 1969 Fender Mustang in great condition with a case. Not a re-issue but the real Curt Cobain item! Looks all original although some of the body paint might have been freshened up (color looks a little brighter than on headstock). Serial number is 232538. Plate at bridge reads "Dynamic Fender Vibrato- Pat. No. 324148".

I agree with Mango, though I would defiantly bring it back to former glory. I can tell the body has been refinished so I wouldn't feel bad scraping it all off. Antiquite Mustang pick-ups and new tops for the knobs and that TOM looks like #### on that guitar, so replace that too. It probably has no vintage value, but it would make a cool project, and end up with a fine looking Mustang.

Agreed.

If I was to buy it, it would definitely be a resoration project.

It seems odd that someone would favout a tele neck pickup over the Mustang one - even I don't agree with it, and I will defend tele's to my dying day.

The knobs I have no problem with. What are they from? They look very familiar...

Also, the comp stripe looks hideous, that fugly grey/green has gotta go.

It's a shame when great guitars get butchered by people with more ideas than sense.

But, maybe sonically it is just fine...

Yup, that's EXACTLY where I know them from.

I sold the ds-1 a couple of weeks ago, that's why it didn't register right away

Cheers lads :D

those knobs are from radio shack! i have the same ones on my russian muff

If the knobs are common, I might grab some for my 51. The tele knobs don't look quite right. I had jag knobs on there, but they were the wrong size thread and wore out :(

Yeah robb they came in a pack of four. They are called something like "general project knobs" they will probably fit most pot shafts and have a set screw

Cool I will go for it. We don't have Radio Shack here, but I'm sure any electronics store will get the job done...

I was wondering, are they excally still making the 'competition mustangs' ?

ON: I like the guitar, but the tele pickup and the knobs are :-hateit

No, I'm pretty sure the aren't making comp stangs anymore. The RI's seem to be sans comp stripe.
