Great guitar after setup and pulling thicker strings ...!

Jürgen665, 31.10.2012
Already since last summer I had an eye on Squier's new Vintage Modified series thrown. Among other things, the classic offset models Jazzmaster, Jaguar and Mustang were reissued here as affordable 'Made in Indonesia' variants.
Since I am a great Sixties and also a small alternative fan, I did not come to drumherum to order one of the new guitars.
In the end, it became the Mustang, as it was the most appealing to me and I always wanted to have a real shortscale guitar.
At the big 'T', I ordered myself, full of expectation, the Mustang in Fiesta Red. A day later, the DHL driver rang the bell and handed me a large package, which I hastily opened.
As for me, I liked it very much once, only the 10er workpieces had been rusted and the rust had a bit on the two uppermost cords, which I had to thoroughly polish before the new cable. Something like that should not happen!

Application:
Here, the Indonesians have done all the work. The guitar is effective and has no major flaws. The finish looks great and powerful red.
Only two smaller dark patches I discovered after some time on the upper side of the frame. But this does not bother me. Firstly, they are really very small,
Hardly bigger than two dust grains and secondly it would have been uncanny if one could not have found anything on this cheap guitar!
The neck is, because of the scale, very short, thick varnished and you have the feeling a small baseball bat in the hand to have - nevertheless TOP processing, horny head plate!
This matches the initial high string position. I have been playing around the instrument for a long time, but it was not possible to get a lot out of it, without it screeching. Above all the bridge was an ÄRGERNIS!
After a long time back and forth, I have come up with the good idea of ??simply trying out 11-string strings instead of the previous 10 ... Bingo !!!
Now the Mustang is much more playable at a time and the entire construction with bridge and strings looks a lot more stable! So take absolutely 11er! I think the guitar was designed for it.
With teners the train is simply not strong enough to stabilize the bridge optimally. Especially since the train is weaker anyway because of the short scale, than with a 'big' guitar.

"Out-of-the-Box", the Mustang was not really well adjusted, but you can actually expect this, even with the price, for example, at Epiphone, where every instrument has been almost perfectly adjusted Cardboard.
The mechanics recall vintage clusters, have plastic buttons and do their duty well.
The built-in single coil pickups are waiting with a big name: "Duncan Designed"! These are officially authorized Korea replicas of Seymour Duncan.
Instead of using a single switch, you can select the pickups using two sliding controls. The special thing is that they can also switch "out-of-phase", which opens up further sound possibilities.
The supplied tremolo arm was once tried by me and then put aside. I do not want to stress the moody bridge with the thing even more, although I actually quite gladly at the Jammerhaken shake.

Sound:
I tried the Mustang on my Fender 70w Hybrid Amp, as well as on Guitar Rig 5 on the PC under different settings from 'Surf' to 'Grunge'.
What can you say ... the sound is just great! The "Duncan Designed" PUs hold what the great name promises! It twangt und twangt !! If you activate both PUs at the same time, you can create a pure TeleSounds.
Out-of-phase, it is even more glassy-twigged, ideal for cool Sixties Instrumentals - you feel clearly reminded of the Lipstick PUs a la Danelectro.
I actually expected the Mustang to sound Strat rather, but I was wrong.
I definitely feel more like a telecaster. The sound is clear, transparent, hard and dry. Few mids, lots of treble and bass.
Distorted, he also makes a good figure and is, for example, by a Tubescreamer still very enforceable.
The neck PU alone can blush very well and you can even create Hendrix sounds, just not so sweet as on a Strat. The bridge PU is more like the Jingle-Jangle direction, but can also sound good and hard.

Conclusion:
If you adjust the guitar a bit and pull thicker strings, at least 11, then you have a great instrument!
The look is appealing, the processing neat, the sound sensational.
I've talked to Amis who found the Squier Mustang the Fender Original equal, the pickups even better!

Edit 01/13: Have now an orig. Fender Bridge on it - optimal!

Tr s good guitar, fid the original!

Mickaël'eure, 01.11.2013
I am really surprised at the quality of this guitar, as well as these microphones! If you want a Fender Mustang at a lower price go direct on it! Obviously it is not the sound Mustang "copied-pasted" but it is not far.

In its clean it is a pure marvel, as in its crunch or light distortion, but not more! For more ennervé sound, do like me, buy a micro-double coil to replace the micro bridge (I personally bought the SJBJ Jr, a SH-4 single-coil format to avoid having to break the wood).

Another thing to finish, plan another set of rope, type 10-46 because the spagh ... pardons, the ropes of origins are really mediocre and never remains, I say never granted!

That's all, do not hesitate to buy it, it's Fender quality!
