From Slaves to Thurston Moore, Kurt Cobain to Adrian Belew, the Mustang is super versatile. Want a clean raggedy tone? It's got it. Want to pump it through enough distortion and fuzz to melt everyone's face off? Done. Known for being able to beat the living daylights out of it, the Fender Mustang is comfortable, tidy and fearsome. "Workhorse" may be a term thrown around for a bunch of different guitars, but the Mustang will just go and go and go.
And what of the specs? 2 MP90 pickups means a load of mids. They were used on the Fender Modern Player series back in the day, and still do the job perfectly. The offset body is a classic, and is super comfortable. Having a bridge where the strings come through the body means the short scale size of the instrument won't be affected by intonation issues. It's a reliable piece of kit.
Oh, and the Burgundy Mist is such a great colour choice. Because looks are important, just not as important as the sound... probably.
Alt rock will never die, and neither will the Mustang.
Perfect for garage rock and other styles that thrive on nonconformity, the Mustang 90 offers a distinctive take on a classic model. With upgraded features, unique aesthetics and fat Fender sound, this spirited instrument is perfect for players that march to a different beat. A new take on an underground classic, it stays true to the rebellious spirit that birthed rock 'n' roll.
