The Fender Mustang Bass is a classic offset instrument, known for its elegant looks and playable 30" scale length. This Vintera '60s Mustang Bass adheres to the classic formula and comes fitted with the decade-defining features found on original models, including a period-correct "C" neck profile, rounded 7.25" fingerboard radius and the distinctive plate-style Mustang bridge.

Classic Fender Construction

Fender has relied on its customary tonewood combinations for the Vintera '60s Mustang Bass. Sporting an Alder body, this balanced-sounding material ensures robust lows, lively mids and crisp highs - a great tonal foundation for the punchy split single-coil pickup.

The Vintera '60s Mustang Bass' Alder body is joined with a bolt-on Maple neck, ensuring a crisp tone when playing finger-style or with a plectrum. The Pau Ferro fingerboard is another thoughtful design touch, adding some crucial lower mid-range warmth and providing a silky-smooth feel under the fingers.

30" Scale Length

Fender's Mustang Bass is unique for its short 30" scale length. Somewhat bridging the gap between an electric guitar scale and that of a conventional bass guitar, this shorter scale length provides a more manageable feel as the Mustang Bass' frets are closer together. And with less tension on the strings, you're also given a slightly looser feel and a deeper tone.

Vintage-Voiced Pickup

For authentic Fender tone, the Vintera '60s Mustang Bass boasts a split-coil vintage-style pickup that is voiced to sound just like the original. Punchy and growling, it has the tone that made Fender the choice of electric bassists during the golden era of guitar design.
