    Born in North America and weighing in at 7 pounds 6 ounces and finished in a glorious #56.

    I purchased this for my plan of having a hybrid Fender short scale using the Shell Pink Mustang body and mating it with the maple fretboard neck from my Duo-Sonic because I think the pink and maple go together really well and I really prefer the small 1950’s headstock with the spaghetti logo.

    I will still bring that plan to fruition but I may wait a while longer to do it because I have to say that for me, these Pao Ferro fretboards are fantastic. I love this thing. In the future, I will be looking for used 2017 MIM Offsets in different finishes.

    The color is way better than any of my photos depict. I’ll shoot some better ones tomorrow in natural light.

    The last 4 Ensenada Fenders that I’ve bought have been fantastic and this guitar is no exception. I think the quality coming out of the factory in Mexico is top notch and the QA has been spot on with all of mine.

    I will end now by saying this. I think that if Fender made a Road Worn version of this Mustang with a nitrocellulose finish, they would fly off the shelves at $850.00... even with the hard tail bridge. (but I would want the two slide switches included)

    Wow...nice indeed, sir! That shell pink Mustang is on my short list, but I’ll have to wait awhile since I just recently made a guitar purchase. Enjoy!

    Another interesting finish for these Mexican built hard-tail Mustangs.
    It’s called “Faded Mocha” and is an exclusive from Chicago Music Exchange.
