    This caught my eye: P90s, 24” scale length, pau Ferro, not too expensive.

    Looks cool!

    For some reason I have always digged the shape and size of the Mustang. About 35 years ago I had a real 1965 black Fender Mustang for some years. In black light (UV) it was suddenly light green!

    At last I got enough of its shaky tremolo arm system and the thinness of the body and asked a luthier to make a clone of it with a strat thicked body and TOM bridge.

    For some reason I never bonded with it. Until I found the P90 pickups. They made it alive. But it was humbuckers that made that guitar sing. And dance!

    In fact it is all I need, if I sometime have to sell the other 4 electric solid bodies away.

    John MacLaughlin played In A Silent Way with a Mustang!

    I have one of these in a bright red. It's a marvelous little player. Fit and finish are very good. Nice frets, sweet tones.

    Nice. When I was a teenage in the 70s I bought a used '65 Mustang... years before the vintage guitar thing. Traded it for another used guitar. 59 Guild CE-100. Who knew?

    I'd put flatwound strings above those P90s and see what tones came out!

    I’ve always liked P 90s even before I knew what P 90s were. Back in the day, a friend’s brother had a casino with P 90s and I thought it was just great. I missed out on a Ernie Ball/musicman But had P 90s and I kind of kicked myself about it for quite a while. The P 90s with the short scale should be an interesting mix. Yeah, throw on some flats. Very interesting combination.

    This is the charm of the Fender JA-90 Telecaster. Not to mention the jazz tone standard bearers like the Gibson ES-125.
