1978 Fernandes FMT-50 Fender Mustang MIJ Japan (Black)
1978 Fernandes FMT-50 Mustang
Made by Tokai in Japan in 1978, the Fernandes FMT series were super classy Mustang's made to exceptional quality! Maple neck, rosewood board and i believe possibly a Sen (ash) body. Spec wise, they have 22 frets, Kluson style tuners, medium C shaped neck and a 24" scale length. This one just had new strings put on there and is ready to go!
With the poor quality coming out of the Fender factory in the 1970's, buying a Japanese guitar from this period can be a much better choice. The Japanese factories were producing high quality instruments throughout the 1970's, whereas the cost-cutting measures that CBS had implemented on Fender had a huge impact on the quality and consistency of their instruments. If you're after a vintage Fender-style guitar from the 1970's then you'll save money and gain quality in buying a Japanese guitar like this!
