DESCRIPTION

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.

TAPERED-SHAFT TUNING MACHINES
Featuring vintage-style paddle keys, tapered tuning machines are wider at the top than the bottom, forcing the string windings downward and keeping them tight for increased sustain and enhancing tuning stability.

MEDIUM-JUMBO FRETS
Medium-jumbo frets make it easier to achieve wide, expressive bends that add your personal touch to your music.

4-SADDLE BRIDGE
This model features a four-saddle bridge for solid tuning stability, precise intonation and increased sustain. The string-through-body design enhances string-to-body vibration transfer for added sustain.

SATIN-FINISHED NECK
Featuring a “Modern C”-shaped profile that works well with almost any playing style, the neck also hosts a satin finish on the back, giving it a smooth, fast playing feel.

GREASEBUCKET TONE SYSTEM
This uniquely Fender tone system lets you cut treble without losing gain or “muddying” your sound, preserving your carefully shaped tone.
