I have bought a Sakai Mustang and, looking for some info, I stumbled upon your blog (http://guitarz.blogspot.com.es/2011/08/japanese-mustang-wannabe-with.html)
The most relevant thing is that it looks shortscale, but it is not. It has very light thin body and an big ugly head. The tremolo seems to be mounted like a Stratocaster one, and it works perfecly. It came to me also with a bridge cover, but it looks ugly on it.
I don't know wich year was made... maybe if I unscrew the body from the neck I can find something... Unlike the original Mustang, it has only two positions for each pickup. It doesn't look like it, but it's a great guitar :)
