The Mustang has been a stand-out Fender model since its creation in the mid-1960s. Initially made as a guitar for students, the Fender Mustang has become a much more widely known model than it was originally anticipated. The Mustang 90 is equipped with dual MP-90 pickups, offering a flexible, versatile range of superb Fender tones that retain the true, traditional Mustang sound.
The 2016 Fender Mustang 90 still has that recognisable, unique shape that came about when Fender gave some of their student guitars a remake in the 1960s. This classic model has a short-scale body that makes it much easier to play, even for smaller or younger guitarists as well as for the more enthusiastic performers onstage. The Mustang 90 features a solid alder body which is then treated with a gloss polyester finish.
A maple neck is joined to the short-scale Mustang body, shaped to the comfortable "C" profile. The neck is given a satin polyurethane finish for a slicker feel in your hand. Aboard the neck is a smooth rosewood fingerboard that provides a superb playing surface. There are 22 medium jumbo frets at your service on the 9.5 inch radius fingerboard, with white dot inlays to guide you.
Fender have kitted the Mustang 90 model out with two MP-90 pickups that give you a widened range of adaptable tones with plenty of grit as well as those spotless clean tones. The MP-90 dual pickups are fitted in the neck and bridge positions and allow for a modern audio take on the traditional Mustang tone.
Simple controls feature for Master Volume and Tone, while a 3-way pickup toggle switch allows you to shape the sound output to suit your playing needs.
HARDWARE AND FINISH
The lower bout of the Mustang 90 is fitted with a 6-saddle strings-through-body Strat hardtail bridge with bent steel saddles, improving sustain and tone. The bridge also works simultaneously alongside the Standard Cast / Sealed tuning machines at the headstock to ensure total tuning accuracy.
The finish of the Mustang 90 is accompanied by a 4-ply Aged White Pearloid pickguard as a protective yet attractive addition to the body. The Fender 2016 Mustang 90 with a Rosewood fingerboard is a stunning twist on a classic instrument.
