Just dug my guitar out of the closet after 12 years and Im picking up where I left off. I need an outlet to let off steam! Anyhow, I jumped back in with both feet! I couldnt find my strap for my Tanara accoustic, so I went to the music store to get a new one and made the mistake of looking at the electrics. This one jumped out at me and demanded that I take it home! Its an old student guitar. :D

Yes, I see that is a genuine Fender Mustang, and not a reproduction or re-issue. Isn't that nice? Torino red, probably. :D

Gawd, that sure is hot! Now you will enjoy playing, if you can live with the short scale and other features, I have one too.

Welcome to the forum let us know how it plays, and goes - you know what I mean. :wink: Ask questions if you need, cheers! :D

Thanks for the welcome! It is an underrated guitar for sure, hardly a toy like some would say. Sounded cooler to me than the new Fenders did so I couldnt let the opportunity to by it pass. So far Im enjoying the short scale although id say I have average sized hands. Relearning some basic cords and tabs and learning some new ones. Just gotta get this rythmic thing down!

Ah, well, it happens to all of us. A couple of months ago I went in to buy some picks and saw a Fender strat on the wall. You know the rest.

Welcome to GN. It's a friendly and helpful place.
