A major part of the backbone in countless famous bands, the Fender Mustang has been the bass of choice for many players since 1964. With its super playable size and features, excellent Fender appointments, and sweet rumbly tone, this bass is great for players in almost any musical scenario.

Super Playable Size and Features
A mark of the Fender Mustang is its shorter scale length. Shorter than its Fender bass contemporaries by about 4 inches, the 30" scale length of this bass has a different level of playability due to its size. With a comfortably shaped alder body, the double cutaway allows you to reach all the way up the 19 frets of the rosewood fretboard. The maple neck is cut into modern "C" for a supremely comfortable playing experience.  

Excellent Fender Appointments
From bridge to tuners this Mustang sports quality. Starting from the top, this bass has Fender “F” light-weight vintage paddle key tuners with tapered shafts. Their recognizable look and ease of use makes them a beloved Fender feature. There's a synthetic bone nut and white dot inlays lining the fretboard. The 4-ply aged white pearloid pickguard adds a cool look and a 4-saddle American Performer Mustang Bass Bridge keeps the strings properly in place.

Sweet Rumbly Tone
They may look familiar, but the electronics on this stallion have never been seen before the release of the American Performer Series. The signature pickup from this series, the Yosemite single coil, is featured in the Jazz Bass pickup at the bridge and the split Mustang Bass middle pickup. Those pickups are adjusted with individual volume controls and a master Greasebucket Tone Circuit, allowing you to manage the highs without overdoing it on the bass.
