About This Listing

Fender American Performer Mustang Bass, Rosewood Fingerboard, Aubergine

Born in Corona, California, the short-scale American Performer Mustang Bass delivers the exceptional tone and feel you expect from an authentic Fender—along with new enhancements and a special split-coil pickup, replicated from the original ‘70s drawings, that make it even more inspiring to play.

The American Performer Mustang Bass includes the Yosemite™ split-coil Mustang Bass middle pickup and a growling Yosemite single-coil Jazz Bass bridge pickup, designed for rich, expressive tones. With flat-staggered pole pieces to increase output and a shellac coating that lets the coils breathe while controlling feedback, Yosemite pickups produce dynamic sounds ideal for any musical situation. The American Performer Mustang Bass also features Greasebucket™ tone circuitry that lets you shape your highs without adding bass, preserving your sound. The “Modern C”-shaped neck sports a 9.5”-radius fingerboard that’s comfortable for almost any playing style, along with 19 medium-jumbo frets for effortless and accurate bending.

Product Overview
Crafted with features like a GreaseBucket tone circuit for taming high-end without making your sound muddy and a combination of passive Alnico V Yosemite Jazz and split Mustang pickups, the Fender American Performer Mustang Bass delivers a quality US-made instrument at a solid price point. The calibrated, shellac-dipped pickups deliver a wide spread of tone from smooth thumps to outright growls while the Modern C-shape maple neck and 30" make for some of the smoothest playing around.
