Playing guitar since I was 8, about 10 years now. Took some lessons as a kid, I'm not too bad but lots to learn still. Can nail some of my fav chords tho! Bam! I have been looking for a "new" vintage guitar, saw one on an auction and am here looking for advice.

Online Auctions

Is this a good guitar? How cheap do you think I can get it for?

Hard to know if its good without playing it...Fenders from that era were quite variable. It looks fantastic, though. Price would be in the 3-4K range I would guess.

Welcome to GC Jamie. When I was a young fellow I had a '65 Mustang in Olympic White. A great guitar and wish I still had it. I am no expert but I think 3-4K is too high. I have seen nice 60's Mustangs go for 3K or even less. The one you are looking at appears to be in decent shape but without playing it you can never tell. The experts will probably mock my estimate but I think a '72 is worth about $1500.00, maybe a bit more (or less). Depends if someone wants it really badly. Good luck. Nice choice.

You are correct, I thought it was a jaguar.

The bar should be there could be in the case or lost

Hi.

FYI, no guitar is worth more than a couple of grand if your income is still five digits...
