Cool Mustang body
The Fender American Performer Mustang Bass upholds the classic style that has drawn in bassists since the 1960s. The sleek curves combined with scaled-down dimensions and slender depth establish a snug playing feel, which makes it ideal for those who like to move freely during performances. Built using alder, the lightweight feel of the bass is matched by a generous tonal palette with a bouncy mid-range emphasis. From strutting mid to low-end energy to tight and articulate highs, the Mustang Bass is perfect for tackling any and every musical style.
Sleek neck profile
Joined to the body is responsive yet sturdy maple neck, which is carved to the modern "C" profile for maximum comfort. The short-scale 30-inch length increases string flexibility along with a warmer response from each note. The shorter scale also makes this ideal for performers with a shorter reach who don't want to overstretch. The compact dimensions allow you to shift rapidly across each string, from fret to fret at lightning fast speeds. Paired with the neck is a sumptuous rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 19 medium-jumbo frets with dot position inlays. The 9.5-inch radius makes it a breeze to fret chord shapes, sail through scales and bend to your heart's content. The synthetic bone nut ensures that all strings remain stable and secure in their position, whilst the standard truss rod enables ready adjustment when necessary.
The American Performer Mustang Bass is equipped with a pair of Fender's Yosemite pickups, which comprises a single-coil Jazz Bass in the bridge and a specially designed split-single coil Mustang Bass pickup in the middle. The split single-coil has been developed based on schematics from Mustang pickups of the 1970s to give this setup a unique character. Boasting Alnico 5 magnets for a meatier response, whilst Formvar-coated wiring optimises definition to round out the response beautifully. At your disposal there are independent volume controls for each pickup, as well as a master tone pot with Greasebucket tone circuitry. Greasebucket circuitry allows highs to be rolled off without sacrificing gain to bolster low-end growl. Whatever style of music you're taking on from rock to funk, country to punk, the Mustang Bass is up for anything and everything.
The body is home to a 4-saddle American Performer Mustang Bass bridge with, which anchors each string securely to optimise intonation and sustain throughout the most demanding of performances.
