GREEN MEAZZI HOLLYWOOD MUSTANG

-

One of Italy’s lesser-known ’60s offerings, the Mustang has a unique voice, thanks to its three single-coil pickups with global volume and tone knobs. The maple neck has 22 medium-jumbo frets and the feel of the larger Fender Jazzmaster, while the fully intonatabl­e bridge has a mute that fits the palm. This was perhaps Italy’s answer to the more traditiona­l-looking Stratocast­er. The open tuners have tulip-shaped buttons, much like Hofners of the period, and the chrome whammy bar is inscribed with the guitar’s name.
