Iconic Short-Scale Electric Guitar with Legendary Fender Tone

The Fender American Performer Mustang electric guitar delivers the iconic short-scale design and legendary Fender tone that has made the Mustang a go-to choice among alternative, indie and punk rock players for over 50 years.

Playability and Versatile Sound

This updated version of the Mustang features a comfortable C-shaped maple neck and rosewood fingerboard with medium jumbo frets for great playability. The alder body produces a balanced, articulate tone. Two single-coil Performer Mustang pickups provide crisp, snappy tone that cuts through the mix. From bright, vintage-flavored cleans to crunchy overdrive, this guitar covers a wide range of tones perfect for any style. The 3-way pickup selector switch, master volume and tone controls give you flexible tonal shaping options.

Short-Scale Design

The Mustang’s 24″ scale length makes it easy and comfortable to play, especially for musicians with smaller hands or those who are transitioning from guitar to bass. The short scale also contributes to the Mustang’s distinctive tone, with focused lows and snarly overdrive when you dig in. Despite its diminutive size, the Mustang delivers impressive volume, projection and sustain.

Quality Craftsmanship

Part of Fender’s American Performer series, this guitar is built to exacting standards in the United States. Some of the upgraded features include a redesigned tremolo bridge for improved stability and sustain, new American Performer pickups wound to vintage-style specs, and narrow-tall frets for easy bending. The gloss finish polyurethane body coating provides smooth playability and enhanced durability.

Classic Style and Versatility

The iconic offset Mustang body shape with its deep double cutaway horns gives this guitar a bold, distinct look on stage. Sleek and stylish, the Mustang turns heads while also delivering versatility to handle any gig. From the garage to the stage, the Mustang pairs well with any musical style thanks to its flexible sound.

The Fender Mustang Legacy

First introduced in 1964, the Fender Mustang burst onto the scene as an innovative short-scale student model guitar. Named after the popular Ford Mustang pony car, the guitar’s offset shape, distinctive headstock and short scale length made it stand out. Unexpectedly, the Mustang gained a cult following among alternative and grunge guitarists in the 1990s. Kurt Cobain of Nirvana famously played a ’69 Competition Mustang in the “Smells Like Teen Spirit” music video. The Fender Mustang has since cemented its place as an underground and indie rock icon.
