The Fender Mustang is a classic offset-style guitar first designed for student players. The shape proved so popular that it eventually made its way into the hands of thousands more musicians. The limited edition Traditional '60s model harks back to those original designs.
Made in Japan, this high-quality instrument boasts Fender's signature construction with the added bonus of distinctive tone-shaping switches, granting you access to a wide palette of sounds.
The Mustang Traditional '60s is made of a classic alder body and maple neck combo, featuring a comfortable 'U' shape profile that offers excellent support for your thumb when fretting tricky chord shapes. Its luxurious rosewood fretboard has curved 7.25-inch radius, which reduces the space in between strings and makes string bending incredibly smooth. The small 24-inch scale length also means there's less of a jump from one fret to the next, making the Mustang an all-round fast guitar to play.
The unique floating Mustang tremolo/tailpiece allows you to add gentle warbles to your sound. Its traditional bone nut ensures string stability for the longest time possible.
The Mustang is powered by dual single-coils pickups capable of capturing old-school '60s tone. Projecting focused lows and a potent mid-range, these particular pickups have a sparkly character that really shine with clean settings.
A special pair of slide switches control the sound of each pickup. You can turn each one on and off to tap into those distinctive out-of-phase tones akin to a Strat. Master tone and volume knobs provide greater overall balance, with the latter cleaning up nicely when using overdrive or distortion.
