Overview of Fender American Performer Mustang Bass (Satin Surf Green)
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(TM) 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 and a shellac potting 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(TM) 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 jumbo frets for effortless and accurate bending.
