28% Off... the manufacturer's suggested retail price...

A no-nonsense take on the classic Fender Mustang, the Squier Sonic Mustang is teeming with alt-rock attitude! This guitar’s slightly compact offset poplar body is loaded with a pair of Squier ceramic single-coil pickups, producing bell-like cleans and an aggressive snarl when you stomp on your favorite distortion pedal. Next, the neck’s maple-on-maple construction and “C” shape deliver a feel that splits the difference between playing comfort and high-performance playability. Prefer an instrument with a slinky string feel? The Mustang’s classic 24-inch scale length offers a relaxed tension and reduced fret-to-fret travel distance — perfect for developing guitarists and players with a slightly smaller grip. Whether you’re after an attitude-equipped first instrument or looking for a bold new sound to add to your arsenal, the Squier Sonic Mustang is a short-scale powerhouse.

Fender Squier Sonic Mustang at a Glance:

  • Short 24" scale length
  • Squier single-coil pickups
  • 6-saddle hardtail bridge
  • Sealed-gear tuning machines
  • Chrome hardware

Dual Mustang-style ceramic pickups for single-coil sparkle 

Like the original Fender Mustang, the Squier Sonic Mustang comes equipped with clear-as-a-bell single-coil pickups. However, unlike the original, this Mustang lives up to its high-speed designation with a hot ceramic magnet design! This results in a pickup that seamlessly merges the clear character of the classic Mustang-style single-coil with a raw, biting response when pushed into dirtier territory. What’s more, Music Experience’s die-hard short-scale aficionados love how Mustang-style single-coil pickups tend to retain a sonically neutral character that perfectly pairs with pedal-heavy rigs.

Low-tension 24-inch scale length

While most Fender/Squier 6-string family models sport a 25.25-inch scale length, the Mustang family clocks in at a slightly shorter 24 inches. What does that mean for you? More relaxed playability up and down the fingerboard, with a shorter distance between each fret and slinkier string tension. Make no mistake, it’s still by all means a full-size instrument — as evidenced by the legions of alt-rock and indie players devoted to the Mustang family, including the late legendary Kurt Cobain — but it does offer a significant fingerboard advantage to a player with smaller hands or a musician looking for a snappier sound and feel.

Maple neck with a comfortable “C” carve 

The Squier Sonic Mustang’s maple-on-maple neck will surely please players of all styles and backgrounds, sporting a crowd-pleasing “C” profile. It’s more than substantial enough to accommodate players with slightly larger hands while sporting a lightning-fast feel for fleet-fingered runs. Up top on the fingerboard, this neck is loaded with 21 Narrow Tall in a modern 9.5-inch radius to provide slick, fast playability with no fret-outs.

Squier Sonic Series: suitable selections for emerging guitarists 

Ask any musician: whether you’re searching for your first instrument or a more affordable guitar option, Squier’s Sonic Series should be at the top of the list. Options ranging from classic Stratocasters to beefy Precision basses provide beginner musicians with all the essentials required to start their audial journey — without sacrificing sound quality. Likewise, a new, expanded library of color options and body styles ensures every musician can access the perfect instrument. Topped off with the same durable build and tonal capabilities as every other Squier instrument, the Sonic Series provides years of reliable and authentic performance to any player.
