The classic short-scale Fender with modern features.

Designed and built in Fender's Corona, California facility, the American Performer Series was created to deliver the exceptional tone and feel US-made Fender guitars are universally respected for. The American Performer Mustang, heir to the "student" guitar that became a favorite of beginners and pros alike, adds modern materials and features to its classic form and sound. Loaded with Fender's flat-staggered pole Yosemite single-coil pickups, it delivers extraordinarily even string response and incredible dynamic range. The Greasebucket tone circuitry preserves treble response without adding bass as you work the guitars volume control and the vintage-modern Mustang bridge brings a whole new level of performance to the instrument. With a 24" scale, it's ideal for beginners, players with smaller hands or players who simply like the feel and response of a shorter scale.
