Owning a guitar over 30 years, for me at least, is a little goofy. It's been kinda like
having a wife of sorts, or an on again-off again relationship with an object. I've had a
lot of guitars, but this one, my first "good" guitar, never got stolen, sold, or
My brother bought it for $110 from a
guy in Kensington, MD in 1972, never learned how to play, and so I got it. The $75
'Stang was the first guitar I owned that was easy to play. The small neck fits my hands
Rockin' with the 'Stang in the late 70's
with Scotty Decker and Andy Operchuck
Anybody who's hung up on the "All
Original" Mustang concept get over it. I gave up years ago. Mustangs were never worth
more than $300 until recently. Let's face it, it's not a Strat or Tele and never will be.
About $800 to $1200 for a mint pre-CBS is the going rate. I have a really clean stock
white '65 pickguard with two custom wound Joe
Barden's if I get the urge to go back to Leo's idea.
Also, not being a Nirvana fan, I never heard of
a JagStang until last year. Looks like Mr. Kurt Kobain had some cool ideas and got Fender
to mix it up a little. I don't care for the lead humbucker but the rest looks pretty cool.
Where's the damn toggle switch.
