Fender Mustang basses have long stood at the forefront of the more avant-garde music of the last 60 years. The Mustang has long been the preferred weapon of choice for the punkier more alternative player looking for a workhorse that looks the part. The simple versatility of the Mustang with its reassuring balance of rock star looks and booming tone have attracted the wilder more alternative musicians.
The attention to detail on the Squier 60s Mustang Bass is breath-taking from the authentic pickups to the "C" profile neck, Fender has sought to bring back to life a golden era of smooth tone. Utilising Nato for the body keeps the bass very resonant while being supple enough to provide that low smooth tone so familiar to Mustang Bass players. The Maple neck is classically playable and Indian Laurel fingerboard will provide silky sustain when needed.
An Iconic Instrument
Recreating some of the iconic features Leo Fender himself designed is one of many reasons to own this bass. Fender has used the single-coil Mustang Bass pickups that sound gritty and growling, giving the Mustang bass the “Mid ‘60s era timbre not found in other basses. The 4-saddle bridge with threaded saddles means you can adjust and customise to make the Squier as playable as possible. The Vintage style tuners provide rock-solid stunning stability and accuracy and cap with a beautifully recreated vintage bass.
