Fender American Performer Mustang Bass Guitar, Rosewood FB, 3-Tone Sunburst 019-8620-300
Built in Corona, California, the short scale American Performer Mustang is a unique and high quality bass designed to a retro aesthetic. As part of the American Performer range – a selection of high quality American built instruments with accessible price tags – Fender have crafted a great new design which is purposely equipped to deal with a life on the road, and years of ownership.
The compact, vibrant, and uniquely shaped Alder body sits comfortably on the lap, or strapped around the shoulders, while a gloss 3 Tone Sunburst Urethane finish provides an undeniably classic aesthetic. Likewise, the satin finished neck is of an exceptional quality, and features a “Modern C”-shaped profile that works well with almost any playing style. The Rosewood fingerboard’s radius is 9.5″, which when combined with the 19 Medium-jumbo frets, provides a modern, positive, and extremely comfortable feel.
Handcrafted in California, Fender’s Yosemite® pickups are specifically voiced for each instrument and position, and together with Fender’s excellent Greasebucket Tone Sytem, the combination of a Yosemite® split-coil Mustang Bass middle pickup, and Yosemite® single-coil Jazz Bass bridge pickup provide a highly usable sonic versatility. Other features include Tapered-Shaft tuning machines, which force string windings downward for increased sustain and enhanced tuning stability, a string-through 4-Saddle bridge for further tuning stability, precise intonation and increased sustain, and classic detailing such as a Pearloid scratchplate, and dot inlays. A deluxe gig bag is also included.
