Fender's Mustang 90 solidbody electric guitar reintroduces one of the most popular offset-body styles with some modern updates that are a hit with the new wave of modern guitar players. The Mustang 90's 24" scale length keeps string tension low and is ideal for players with a naturally smaller frame. The duet of MP-90 single-coil pickups sounds absolutely massive when run clean or through your favorite fuzz pedal. And the Fender Mustang 90 solidbody electric guitar's electronics are an intuitive affair that allow you to focus solely on your music.
The Fender Mustang is one of the most identifiable and sought-after offset electric guitar body styles in the world. Its compact dimensions not only imbue it with plenty of character, but also help it remain lightweight and extremely comfortable for smaller players. This Mustang 90 carries with it the standard Mustang 24" scale length that maintains lower string tension for easy chording and a warm, stringy tone. One look at the Mustang 90, and you'll know this solidbody electric guitar was built for today's boundary-pushing guitarists.
The Mustang 90 separates itself from vintage Mustangs with a duet of Fender MP-90 single-coil pickups. Many players at Music Experience agree the MP-90s are a great addition to the guitar because of the way they maintain the clear and bell-like tones of traditional Mustang single-coils, while offering more output and midrange grunt for players wanting to work their amps a bit harder. And the Mustang 90's 2-knob and 3-way switch controls make dialing in your tones a simple affair.
Another aspect of the Mustang 90 that has been updated for the demands of today's guitarists is its neck. While this rosewood-on-maple affair does boast a vintage-style 24" scale length, the fretboard is designed with a 9.5" fretboard radius. Fender has been using this radius for a long time because it offers comfortable chording and unimpeded single-note playing and bending. The neck profile is a "C" shape that fills your hand in a very satisfying manner. And 22 medium-jumbo frets are a wonderful middle ground for all sorts of styles.
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.
This classic shorter scale was originally offered during the 1960s on Fender classics such as the Jaguar and Mustang guitars. The 24" scale remains an authentic Fender design element still offered today.
Two specially voiced MP-90 single-coil pickups contribute to the full-sounding voice of the Mustang 90, casting an already distinctive classic Mustang model in a whole new sonic light.
This instrument features a modern neck designed for comfort and performance, with a contemporary “C”-shaped profile (the shape of the neck in cross section), 9.5” fingerboard radius and medium jumbo frets.
This Mustang features a three-way toggle pickup switch, giving you either the bridge or neck pickup alone, or both.
This model features a hardtail six-saddle bridge for solid tuning stability, precise intonation and increased sustain. The string-through-body design enhances string-to-body vibration transfer for added sustain.
This Mustang model features a special neck plate engraved with a Fender “F” logo—a classic design element for Fender instruments.
