What Fender has to say
Born in Corona, California, the 24”-scale American Performer Mustang delivers the exceptional tone and feel you expect from an authentic Fender, along with a unique feel and new player-oriented features that make it even more inspiring to play.
The American Performer Mustang includes the Yosemite™ single-coil pickups, designed for rich, expressive tones. With flat-staggered pole pieces to increase output and a shellac coating that lets the coil breathe while controlling feedback, Yosemite pickups produce dynamic sounds ideal for any musical situation. The American Performer Mustang also features Greasebucket™ tone circuitry lets you shape your highs without adding bass. The “Modern C”-shaped neck sports a 9.5”-radius fingerboard that’s comfortable for all playing styles, along with 22 jumbo frets for effortless and accurate bending. As a final touch, the vintage-modern Mustang bridge features grooved saddles that keep your strings where they belong, no matter how hard you play.
