At the heart of the American Performer Mustang Bass's design is its fantastic set of pickups. With the brand new Yosemite split-coil middle pickup, and Yosemite single-coil Jazz bass bridge pickup, you get dynamic tone and plenty of powerful low-end growl. These pickups have flat-staggered pole pieces and shellac coating for wide-ranging, heavy tone. These are excellent pickups that provide an extra layer of tonal versatility, and you'll only find them in the American Performers. Plus, the exceptional Greasebucket tone circuitry adds even more tonal layers to be uncovered. The American Performer also features a modern "C" shaped neck, 19 medium-jumbo frets, and a 9.5" radius fingerboard, which contribute to this bass's remarkable playability and rock-solid in-hand feel. Made in Corona, California, the American Performer Mustang Bass is a remarkable instrument with the wide-ranging tone and the unmatched playability you've come to expect from an authentic, USA-made Fender.

Why We Love Fender
It's hard to find a name more synonymous with guitars than Fender. Ever since Leo Fender burst onto the scene with his now-iconic Telecaster, Fender guitars have found homes in the hands of brand new guitar players and seasoned rock stars. When the headstock says Fender, you know you're getting a quality instrument.
