Fender American Performer Mustang - Penny / Rosewood
The Fender American Performer Mustang features a short 24" scale, that famous compact body design and a pair of Yosemite single coil pickups.
A real favourite amongst the alternative ranks...here we have the Fender American Performer Mustang. Born in Corona, California, this American made cult classic delivers iconic looks and player friendly appointments.
Originally launched in 1964, the Fender Mustang has always been a standout model within Fender's alternative selection of guitars. Used by bands and guitarists often after something a little different from the norm - the Mustang really bucks the trend!
Staying true to its roots, the American Performer Mustang features the iconic downsized Mustang body paired with a 24" short scale neck. The neck itself is constructed of maple, carved into a highly playable Modern C shaped profile, and is topped with a rosewood fingerboard with a 9.5" radius maple fingerboard and set with 22 jumbo frets.
Rocking a pair of Yosemite Mustang single coil pickups, the tones on hand are rich and expressive with good amounts of single coil snap and bite. With their flat-staggered pole pieces, the pickups deliver an increased output that is balanced perfectly thanks to the applied shellac coating, which lets the coils breathe whilst also controlling feedback.
The pickups are wired through a 3-way toggle switch and master volume / tone controls. Fender have also seen fit to install the Greasebucket tone circuitry, which allows the tone pot to reduce high frequencies without adding bass...great for preserving the fundamental sound of the guitar.
Another welcome addition is vintage modern Mustang bridge that features grooved saddles, now your strings will stay where they belong...no matter how hard you hit them.
The Fender American Performer Mustang is a great addition to the Fender range, giving players access to an American made Mustang that delivers classic look and contemporary appointments, perfect for the modern day guitarist.
