Purchased at auction.
I don't know if the previous owner was a fan of CHAR or not, but in a paperback book titled "The Fender Mustang that Plays" (Ai Press), a Japan-made mustang was modified and adjusted by Mr. Shirado of Kanda Shokai, who gave it to CHAR. Mr. Shirado of Kanda Shoukai presents CHAR with a modified and tuned Japan-made Mustang, and CHAR makes a comment about it. The book has a scene in which Mr. Shiratsuchi of Kanda Shokai presents CHAR with a Japanese mustang that has been modified and tuned, and CHAR comments on it.
The bridge piece was left as normal (in fact, it has a KTS piece), and the instrument maker who requested the modification advised him not to put the string guide through the string guide to keep the tuning correct. It was set up so that the string guide was not passed through.
Perhaps it was because the string guide was not used, but the string height was high and I felt it was very difficult for me to play.
So, I put a KTS piece that was originally attached to another mustang, put the string guide through it, and set it up as close as possible to the modification method described in the library (I also changed the height of the pegs).
(I changed the height of the pegs.) If I set the arms down too far, the bridge would move, which would make it crazy, but I was able to get it to the point where normal arming would not cause it to go crazy. (It is a locking peg, so it would be better if it were not out of alignment at all...)
) Furthermore, the string height has been lowered to make it easier to play.
(I think CHAR didn't like it so much...).

Unfortunately, I have given it away now.
I think it's recent.
