Profile of Fender Classic Series '65 Mustang

1965 was the first full year of production for what was originally a student model, the Mustang®. The model was destined for bigger things though, and was eventually seen slung over the shoulders of artists including David Byrne, John Frusciante, Kurt Cobain, Todd Rundgren and Adrian Belew to name only a few. This reissue Classic Series ’65 Mustang has great color and cosmetic options, and many period-correct details (body wood, logos, etc.).
