Fender Player Mustang®, Maple Fingerboard
Since 1964 the Mustang model has been bringing Fender sound and style to the stage and the studio in the hands of trend-setting players ranging from Nirvana to The 1975. Upgraded with performance-oriented features, this new Mustang sports classic style with modern electronics in an ultra-comfortable short-scale form that's easy to play all night long.
While it may not be as iconic as some of Fender's other famous designs, the Mustang has become a model beloved by many for its short scale length, unique body shape, and tone. Originally introduced as a student guitar in 1964 and has experienced a renaissance since the 90s thanks to its popularity with grunge, indie, and alternative guitarists. This Mustang is part of Fender's affordable Player series, staying true to its legacy as a great quality, yet accessible guitar.
The main feature that separates the Mustang from other Fender models is the 24" scale length (distance between the bridge and nut). A shorter scale length means lower string tension making it easier to fret and bend the strings and also provides and warmer tone. This is great for beginners or experienced guitarists who want something different in their arsenal. Short scale guitars also pair with heavier gauge strings if you want a thicker tone without super-tight strings that could strain your fingers.
This guitar features two Mustang-style single-coil pickups with a 3-way toggle switch. In the neck position you get warm, smooth tones, in the middle you get spanky funk tones, in the bridge you get a brighter, more biting tone. The single-coil pickups provide clear and articulate sounds, but as mentioned earlier, Mustangs were beloved by grunge and alternative artists so they definitely handle dirt well!
