With roaring tones and the classic looks to match, the first-ever American Special Mustang is a stripped-down blast.

The American Special Mustang features an Alder body and is offered in two classic gloss urethane finishes, black and 3-color sunburst. The satin polyester Maple neck is carved into a comfortable, Oval “C” profile and is topped off with a slightly shorter scale (24”) 22-Jumbo Fret Rosewood fingerboard (Radius: 9.5”) to provide you with incredible playability up and down the entire neck.

The American Special Mustang comes equipped with a pair of roaring Atomic Zebra humbuckers with streamlined controls and a cool sonic trick up its sleeve in the form of a push/pull master volume knobs that splits the atom, so to speak – splitting both pickups will provide you with an expansive tonal range, allowing you to obtain a great single-coil tone from the inner coil of the neck pickup and the outer coil of the bridge pickup.

The nickel/chrome hardware of this Mustang includes, standard cast/sealed tuning machines, an Adjusto-Matic bridge and anchored tailpiece to provide you with rock-solid intonation and tuning stability. A deluxe gig bag is included with your purchase of the American Special Mustang.
