Fender American Performer Mustang in 3-Colour Sunburst

Yosemite Soapbar Pickups, Greasebucket Circuitry

Written by

Cian Hodge

The Cali-born Performer Mustang is an elegant retro vibe guitar of pro quality. Fender have equipped the Performer range to deal with the rough and tumble of touring and years of ownership. 

Made in the USA, the Performer Mustang is kitted out with awesome Yosemite single-coil pickups, designed for rich, expressive tone. 

Body and Neck

The American Performer is built using a lightweight Alder body and sturdy Maple neck, cut in a streamlined ‘C’ shape. Players after modern playability combined with classic looks will feel at home on the Performer Mustang.       

Its 9.5” radius Rosewood fretboard is a standard Fender appointment. Anyone with experience of playing a similar American-made guitar will recognise the gentle curvature, in contrast to the retro aesthetic. The 24” scale length allows for extremely expressive string bends and vibrato. Finished with 22 Jumbo frets that make for an effortless playing experience.   


The Performer Mustang comes into its own thanks to the unique, crisp and soulful-sounding Yosemite pickups. Flat, staggered pole pieces increase the output of the Yosemites, while the shellac potting lets the coils breathe and keeps feedback under control. Suitable beyond just vintage music genres.

Under the hood you’ll find Fender’s Greasebucket tone circuitry. This lets you shape your highs without adding bass. The Mustang is way more versatile than the student guitar it was originally designed to be. 


Fender decided to alter the tremolo bridge with grooved saddles that keep the strings exactly where they’re meant to sit. The Performer Mustang holds tuning extremely due to the design update, as well as the synthetic bone nut and in-house made tuning gear.
