The Fender Ben Gibbard Mustang is a significantly-upgraded signature guitar, built for the Death Cab for Cutie guitarist. Its foundation is a chambered body constructed from increasingly-rare Ash. This ensures light weight, increased resonance, and an attractive grain pattern, visible through the Natural finish. Vintage-Inspired Mustang pickups provide the tonal signature – controlled via a 3-way rotary knob – while a hard-tail bridge provides outstanding intonation.

FENDER BEN GIBBARD MUSTANG GUITAR WITH CHAMBERED ASH BODY
Since the late 1990s, Ben Gibbard has been a prominent voice in indie rock as singer-songwriter for the platinum-selling band Death Cab for Cutie. His melodic, personal songwriting style and the band’s powerful sound helped pave the way for generations of musicians to follow.
Ben’s modified ‘70s Fender Mustangs have been his preferred touring choice for years. The Ben Gibbard Mustang recreates his modified touring workhorses and adds some bold new enhancements.
Featuring a chambered ash body design for increased resonance and reduced weight and a one-piece 22-fret modern “C”-shaped maple neck with 9.5” radius fingerboard and medium jumbo frets, this guitar is a comfortable and versatile stage performer. Electronics include a set of custom, vintage-inspired Ben Gibbard Mustang pickups and a stage-ready 3-way rotary pickup selector switch. What appears to be a vintage-style Mustang bridge is actually an innovative modified hardtail setup, providing rock-solid stability, intonation and sustain.
Includes strap locks and a Fender gig bag.
