Fender Mustang Guitars

The Fender Mustang has got a short-scale length which makes bending a breeze! The pickups will vary from model to model but mustang guitars are known for giving growl and grit and players with a spanky right hand will find that these guitars bite back.

They've been upgraded and improved in the years since they were first introduced and offer a distinct look on stage and a distinct sound in the studio. Modern models have also had updated saddles and bridges.

Fender Mustang FAQs

What is the scale length of a Fender Mustang?

The Fender Mustang is a short-scale guitar with a 24" scale length.

What's the difference between a Fender Mustang and a Fender Duo-Sonic?

The Fender Duo-Sonic generally has a smaller traditional Fender headstock, compared to the larger '70s style headstock of the Mustang. A Duo-Sonic's waiste is also closer to the neck, meaning the upper frets are slightly more accessible (especially when sitting down). Finally, a Mustang often has slanted pickups, compared to the Duo-Sonic's straight pickup position in the bridge.

When was the Fender Mustang released?

The Mustang was unveiled in 1964 as a redesign of Fender's compact 'student' models, like the Duo Sonic. Fender ceased production of the Mustang in 1982 but it saw a resurgence in popularity with the alternative rock/grunge movement. It was reintroduced in 1990.

What's the difference between a Fender Mustang and a Squier Mustang?

Squier make great affordable/beginner-friendly guitars based on genuine Fender designs, including the Mustang. The company is owned by Fender, and they use different materials and components, and manufacture overseas - this makes them more affordable.
