Overview

With the American Performer series, Fender brings a whole new level of accessibility to quality, Made in USA guitars, with redesigned pickups, fresh hardware, colorful finishes, some subtle rethinking and a surprise or two. One of those surprises is the American Performer Mustang, a reimagined version of Fender's classic short-scale "student" guitar.

Fender American Performer Mustang contours

Slim, sleek and colorful

Although dubbed a "student" guitar, the original Mustang ended up being a favorite of many professionals. The 22.5" scale was comfortable and easy to get around, and the pickups and simple tremolo bridge brought a unique sound and vibe into play. For the American Performer Mustang, Fender provides finishes that appeal to both the traditionalist and the adventurous spirit. With 3-color sunburst and vintage white for the former and the new glittery, coppery penny and a subtle satin sonic blue for the latter, there's something here to satisfy any aesthetic yearning.

Fender American Performer Mustang electronics and finish

Magnets, copper and current

For the American Performer series, Fender revisited and redesigned the electronics, creating a new line of pickups, named "Yosemite." The Mustang pickup retains it original personality, and adds a touch of "attack dog" when you open the volume pot wide. Back off the tone knob, and Fender's unique Greasebucket circuit keeps the tone from getting muddy when you get mellow.

Fender American Performer Mustang headstock and tuners

Chrome and silver

When it comes to hardware, the American Performer Mustang carries Fender's ClassicGear split-post tuning machines and a freshly redesigned tremolo bridge for increased tuning stability and playability. The 9.5"-radius fingerboard is equipped with 22-jumbo frets for accurate intonation and easy, speedy fretting. With updates and tone like this, you'll want to be a student all over again, or start playing now.
