Born in Corona, California, the Fender American Performer Mustang Bass delivers the exceptional tone and feel that you'd expect from an authentic Fender, along with new, player-oriented features — and a special split-coil pickup, replicated from the original 70s drawings, that make it even more inspiring to play.
The American Performer Mustang includes Fender's new American-made Yosemite split single-coil Mustang Bass pickup, and a growling Yosemite single-coil Jazz Bass bridge pickup, designed for rich, expressive tones, in the middle position. With flat-staggered pole pieces to increase output and a shellac coating that lets the coil breathe while controlling feedback, Yosemite pickups produce dynamic sounds ideal for any musical situation.
The American Performer Mustang also features Greasebucket tone circuitry to shape the highs without adding bass, preserving your sound. The modern C-shaped neck sports a 9.5” radius fingerboard that’s comfortable for nearly any playing style, along with 19 medium jumbo frets.
Replay Guitar Exchange is proud to offer Fender's American Performer Series Mustang Bass in Satin Surf Green. We like the feel of the necks, and the look and feel of the finishes. As always, feel free to contact our store for more details, or with any questions.
