A compact guitar with dual humbuckers and coil-splitting.

The first-ever American Special series Mustang model is a stripped-down blast, with a roaring HH pickup configuration, streamlined controls and a cool sonic trick up its sleeve in the form of a push/pull master volume knob that splits the atom, so to speak-splitting both Atomic humbucking pickups for great single-coil tone (inner coil of neck pickup and outer coil of bridge pickup). Further, the Adjusto-Matic bridge and anchored tail piece provide rock-solid intonation and tuning stability.

Other features include a maple neck with "oval C" profile and satin finish, rosewood fingerboard with 9.5" radius and 22 jumbo frets, three-way blade pickup switching, two vintage-style black plastic Jazz Bass control knobs (master volume and tone), four-ply tortoiseshell pickguard, and nickel/chrome hardware. Deluxe gig bag included.

Comments about Fender American Special Mustang Electric Guitar:

OK guitar for the 1 day I had it. Setup decent, Slim satin neck, Good pickups, Solid hardware and electronics. The BAD, When they put the rosewood skunk stripe in the neck it was sanded or set lower then the actual maple wood of the neck leaving a bump you could feel with your thumb. Quality control should have never let this one out of the factory like that.Musicians friend, As always, took care of it and I exchanged it for a Modern Mustang which I will review also. For this amount of money I expected better and received less. Your results may vary, Good luck!!!!
