A mixed bag, good guitar for the money.

Blackrod, 30.04.2017
I fancied a short scale guitar so bought this offset bodied Mustang as I am a Fender fan. Positives are It is a solid guitar, 2 pickups, can be in or out of phase with one another, comfortable body, nice feeling neck, most importantly it sounds good, nice cleans and handles overdrive well.

Negatives are all sortable, it needed a setup, truss rod adjustment, saddle adjustment and cutting the nut a little deeper. Now plays really well and is stable with 10 gauge strings fitted.

The whammy arm is not the most elegant and not as smooth as other trem systems but this this is a mustang quirk not specific to this particular guitar.

All in all I would recommend it for a slightly punky guitar, although clean it sounds are a lot better than I thought they would be.

The sonic blue colour with tortoise pickguard is nice aesthetically too.

It's good fun and has a quirky vibe which is different to the Tele that is my main guitar.

Another cracker from Squier...

11.06.2016
A Mustang was never a guitar high up on my "wants" list though I have a Lead 2,its successor,for many years now and used it quite a bit at one stage. The Mustang however just never struck me as anything other than the Strats slightly uglier poor relation so I never really considered one...but I had just purchased the VM Jazzmaster (also reviewed) and was impressed by it enough to consider the Mustang especially given the excellent price/quality balance of my VM Jazzmaster....and so placed the order for one in Sonic Blue
First impressions were very good,well put together body and neck,both well finished with a nicely grained fingerboard and nice looking maple neck.In fact the walnut skunk stripe looks exactly like that on some of my 40+ years old Fenders!
Note this is a 22 fret neck unlike the "classic" 21 fret Fender with a slightly shorter Gibsonish scale length...it also has the flatter modern fingerboard radius and is very comfortable to play.
A nice touch is the reproduction of the "modern"(for the time!)squared white plastic tuner buttons which while a bit fragile seeming work very well indeed using the standard VM Kluson style mechanism...and it sets it apart nicely from its Jag and Jazz stablemates.Squier have also reproduced the "Mustang" typeface with the little speed lines as well!....the logos do not seem to be transfers but printed on,presumably a cheaper option but they look clear and fresh.
The nut needed a little fettling to avoid wound strings sticking but tuning stability is top notch...once the basic set up was done I changed the strings to Fender pure nickle 10's...
Pickups are Duncan Design and are very nice....delivering a good Fenderish single coil sound,no squealing,nice out of phase...when I changed pickguards I noticed they were labelled "bridge" and "centre" so they are probably pretty similar to the Duncan Design Strat pickups used on other Squiers...I wonder if the polepieces are flush on top?...certainly the plain plastic cover has no adverse effect on tone as I half expected...
The pots and wiring are understandably budget..thin wires,small pots but work just fine.It will be interesting to see how well the slider switches last for but they feel quite solid and work perfectly...its a quirky system,some of the options aren't really much more than curiosities but its nice that its been retained rather than just fitting a three way...
Onto the bridge and trem....oddly I found this more tempremental than the JM to set up...more variables for a start!..and a lot of allen keys involved!...firstly I removed the base plate and set the springs to the highest notch on the posts to give a touch more stiffness.I set the tube the strings and trem arm are in as low as possible without jamming the strings when the arm is bent down...so far so good,its a clever system and I like it!
The bridge was a bit trickier to get right...there a bit of a balancing act due to the shorter string length behind the bridge and this eventually meant that setting the saddles low so that the strings were just above the front of the bridge then setting height on the internal screws in the bridge posts worked best...again,the screws are sloppier than on Fender guitars so need locking with nail polish after you are happy with action and intonation...
The trem arm is held by a grubscrew so can be set to turn yet stay where its left...I did bend the arm to have it a bit lower....
The trem is incredibly soft and very sensitive..in fact you can add mild vibrato just by pushing on the tube so I may try stronger springs sometime but it returns to pitch reasonably well,though is not as stable as the Jazzmaster or Strat systems...
Its worth mentioning that neither the Mustang or Jazzmaster come with any sort of manual...I suppose theres plenty of information on the internet but theses are trickier than Strats or Teles to set up and should include some sort of guidelines,even just a single page in black and white like flatpacked furniture would help!
I put a proper celluloid Troy Neagle Pickguard on this,the stock guard is just printed plastic and does not do the sound or appearance these justice but is understandable on cost ground
Again,the Mustang was not the undersized toy I half expected but a really practical instrument that has a good solid sound and is very comfortable to play.The trem is quirky and only comfortable with old school use but could possibly be set up with stiffer springs if needed.Somehow Mustangs seem to have less charisma than almost every other Fender type but they are well worth considering..Kudos to Squier for making such a good job of these!
