Fender Mustang 1969 Orange Competition

#286663 - September 1969


This guitar was originaly painted blue (from factory) then repainted orange (from factory too!). I've been told it was happening when Fender was lacking some models sometimes.

I've been balancing between restoring chromes and keeping them just as they are many times... But I definitely like it like that, with its rust and history.
