OVERVIEW

A classic model with a shorter scale and single-coil tones.

Since 1964 the Mustang model has been bringing Fender sound and style to the stage and the studio in the hands of trend-setting players ranging from Nirvana to The 1975. Upgraded with performance-oriented features, this new Mustang sports classic style with modern electronics in an ultra-comfortable short-scale form that’s easy to play all night long.

Tonally flexible, the pair of angled single-coil pickups make every note and chord pop with authentic Fender tone. These low-output pickups have a balanced voice with bell-like upper harmonics, punchy mids and thick lows for a sound that easily cuts through a mix. Master volume and tone controls, along with a threeway pickup switch craft your sound.

Topped by a 9.5”-radius maple fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets, the “C”-shaped maple neck is comfortable for all playing styles and ideal for players with smaller hands, or those who use extended chord forms. The six-saddle stringthrough-body hardtail Strat® bridge increases sustain while the bent steel saddles add a touch of “cut” to your tone, and are adjustable for spoton intonation.

The 24” scale adds a bit of warmth and thickness to the guitar’s inherent tone, while granting a slinkier playing feel, making it easier to perform multi-step bends. The guitar’s smaller body is perfect for energetic stage performances and ideal for those with smaller frames while retaining Fender’s famous ergonomic design aesthetic.

A gloss polyester finish protects the body while the neck bears a satin polyurethane finish for fast, easy playability. The aesthetic appointments add a touch of classic Fender style to this modernized design for dazzling style under the spotlights. A cult favorite, the Mustang has evolved from a student-oriented model to the underground champion that laid the foundation for grunge and modern alternative rock.

Comments about Fender Mustang Maple Fingerboard:

Admittedly, I had wanted these exact specs for many, many years: Mustang body with an all-maple neck, hardtail bridge, 3-way toggle, AlNiCo V pickups... can't tell you how many times I had something similar in my Warmoth cart and (fortunately) didn't pull the trigger.

So when these new models were announced at NAAM, I pre-ordered mine (in Olive!) and it has not disappointed. The look and feel is impeccable with excellent build quality. Pickups are bright and punchy, sounding somewhere between a more traditional Mustang and a Strat. It has lots of oomph to drive an amp but still articulate enough for all my pedals and effects. Sounds great through my Fender, Vox, Marshall and a Yamaha amps, and I can't say that about most of my guitars.

I've had it for more than six months, the honeymoon phase has long since passed, but "Olive" still occupies close to 50% of my playing time. And that's saying something because I own 7 other electrics.

Great guitar, playability, tone and value--I highly recommend it to anyone who's remotely interested. And if you're worried about the scale length, don't be. Because it's fitted with a string-through hardtail and a set of 10s, it has a solid rock feel. You can't really tell the difference other than it's more comfortable to wield than a Strat or Tele.

...and there are zero mods on the horizon. I'm saving up for the P90 version instead.

      Comments about Fender Mustang Maple Fingerboard:

      Good Fender quality!! Plays nice right out of the box but I would eventually recommend a good set up.. Don't expect much and you won't be disappointed.. It's a simple fun guitar and shouldn't be confused with high end Fender's. The sound quality is good but the pickups are a little weak.. Toggle placement and short scale took a little getting use to. I would highly recommend this guitar for first time players or somebody who just wants to to have fun! This guitar is worth the price I paid for it..

          Comments about Fender Mustang Maple Fingerboard:

          Had this about a month now . For its price point it is a solid playing and sounding guitar .
          Needed a decent setup including filing the nut grooves , intonation and neck and bridge adjustment .
          The fret ends feel a little rough but not to bad . It's nice and light and quite comftorable playing .
          The action is super fast even with a set of 11-49 gauge strings on . Has the classic Fender vintage tone .
          Very pleased overall !
