Pickguard suitable for Fender ® Mustang ®

Overview

Introduced in 1964 as a student guitar, the Fender ® Mustang ® was produced until 1982, when it was replaced with the Fender ® Bullet ®. Displaying an offset shape that was typical of Fender ® guitars released at the time, the Mustang ® featured two single coil pickups, each with its own “control switch”. These allowed each pickup to have their phases switched, or the pickup removed from the circuit thanks to the 3 positions (pickup in phase/pickup off/pickup out of phase) - this allowed a fairly wide combination of tones with a pretty simple 2 switch control setup.

Hole configuration

The pickguard has a twelve hole mounting pattern, with eleven holes around the edge and one central hole, and is available in three and four ply models currently. This is in keeping with that which would have originally been on offer.

As always, it is worth checking our technical specifications to make sure this pickguard will fit your guitar.

For your information, this plate does not fit a Squier® Vintage Modified Mustang ®.

Background

Favoured by rock and alternative bands, the guitar achieved cult status and was first reissued in 1990. A Kurt Cobain® Signature Mustang ® was introduced in 2012, based on the look of Cobain’s heavily modified Fender ® Mustang ®. It differs from the original, mainly because of the Seymour Duncan® JB® humbucker in the bridge.

Reissues have been released as recently as 2016 with Fender ® debuting the “Offset Series”, which includes a new Mustang ®. Be aware though, whilst superficially they are similar to the originals, the controls on this new range do differ, as do the pickguards.
