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:

    Today was the day my brand new Fender Mustang in Olive Green showed up at my local Guitar Center. I ordered it at the store and was incredibly excited to see it. The entire store staff was anxious to see it as well and everyone kept exclaiming how cool it looked. It brought a smile to everyone's face!

    I always wanted a Mustang when I was younger and also wanted it to have a maple neck. Well the maple neck on this new model looks and plays fantastic. Extra smooth matte finish on a perfect C shape profile. The gloss on the front of the neck is clear and shiny.

    The feel of the guitar is so comfortable. Lightweight, balanced and easy to play sitting down. I play Pedal Steel Guitar and that was another reason why I wanted this guitar. I need a light, balanced and good sounding guitar to be able to pick up, play and sit down again at a moments notice. This definitely fits that need.

    And sound, well let me tell you, this little Mustang has a sound all it's own. I've played Fenders for decades and this is the first Mustang I have played. Even the guys at the store noticed the difference immediately when we played it. It has a clear, rounder sound not as harsh or brittle as you might think. The middle pickup selection is my favorite by far. Just the way I like it. I can imagine this guitar will work nicely with pedals and with reverb will be heavenly.

    For the price, the fit, finish and quality are top drawer. It is a cool guitar all it's own. I like it just the way it is and will not change anything. I hope this review will help any of you out there who have been thinking about getting one of these jewels. I recommend buying one. You will like what you see and hear.

    Great for anyone looking for a quality guitar

    Comments about Fender Mustang Maple Fingerboard:

    This guitar is a true joy to play. It is very simple to use with the three way toggle switch instead of the traditional sliders. The playability is outstanding as well with the shorter scale. I find this guitar to be very useable in all three positions with the tone control!
