Char is a guitarist who has had a huge impact on the history of Japanese rock and continues to be at the forefront of the scene today. A beautiful used item has arrived!

The CHAR MUSTANG, based on the iconic OLYMPIC WHITE color MUSTANG that represents his career, is a new MUSTANG that is packed with Char’s unique ideas.

This model will be released as a MADE IN JAPAN model that is easy for more people to pick up.

Fender first released the MUSTANG in 1964. In the same year, Tokyo held the Olympics for the first time in Japan, and Char’s guitar career began right around that time.
More than 50 years later, the 2020 Tokyo Olympics have been decided. Inspired by this, a project was started to embody Char’s idea of ​​creating a new MUSTANG that is easy for beginners to pick up, made in Japan, in a color related to the Olympics, and returning to the original concept of the ‘student model’ that MUSTANG has.

The model’s specification concept was ‘MUSTANG with the functionality of a STRATOCASTER’. A synchronized tremolo bridge was newly developed to match the body thickness of the MUSTANG, which is thinner than that of a STRATOCASTER. The playability and ease of handling unique to the MUSTANG are intact, while the arming of a STRATOCASTER is now possible.

Also, at Char’s request, the back panel of the body has been deliberately eliminated to create a simple style. In addition, a three-position toggle switch is used to enable more intuitive pickup operation.

The position of the control knob has been changed to a position closer to the strings so that the volume can be controlled with a feeling similar to that of a STRATOCASTER, and the pickguard also has an original shape unique to the CHAR MUSTANG, which is not found in the previous MUSTANG.

Regarding the sound of the CHAR MUSTANG, which has undergone various improvements, Char also praised the clear sound image in the low position, saying that the 5th and 6th strings in particular ‘sound better now.’

The condition of this particular guitar is that it has small scratches and playing marks, as well as dullness and rust on parts, but no dents or deep scratches that would detract from its beauty, making it a beautiful pre-owned guitar. Of course, there are no problems with the electrical system or playing, and about 70% of the frets remain without dents, so it is a guitar that you can use as much as you want. This guitar is infused with CHAR’s attention to detail, born from his many years of experience with Mustangs! Don’t miss out!
