Fender American Performer Mustang, Rosewood, 3 Tone Sunburst

First introduced in 1964, the 24" scale Fender Mustang was originally designed as a lower cost student model, but by the mid 1990s it had achieved cult status due to many underground and influential alt-rock bands extolling its virtues. As part of Fender's American Performer range - a selection of well made American models with accessible price tags - the American Performer Mustang updates the original design to create an authentic looking, but modern and extremely playable instrument.

Staying true to the original aesthetic, the wonderfully vibrant Alder body feels light and comfortable, while a fantastic urethane 3 Tone Sunburst finish ensures that the guitar not only looks the part, but is fully prepared for the rigours of the road, and years of ownership. The comfortable Modern “C” shaped Maple neck is finished in a smooth but tough satin urethane, which is perfectly complimented by the 9.5" radius Rosewood fingerboard; 22 jumbo frets further add to the positive and highly playable feel of this fantastic guitar.

Handcrafted in Corona, California, the two Yosemite Single-Coil Mustang pickups have been specifically voiced for each position, and their classic Mustang chirp, spank, and howl will have even the most ardent Fender Offset aficionado smiling. Sonic versatility is further enhanced by Fender's Greasebucket Tone System - a uniquely Fender design which allows treble cut without loss of gain or a “muddied” sound.

Other features include ClassicGear tuning machines, which combine vintage style with a modern 18:1 gear ratio, a classic vintage-style tremolo bridge, and fine detailing such as a 4-Ply Aged White Pearloid pickguard, synthetic bone nut, and classic white dot inlays.
