Fender Mustang is a short scale solid-body electric guitar model. It was introduced in 1964 as an upgrade to the Musicmaster and Duo-Sonic (student-oriented Fender models). But since it hasn’t got much popularity it was discontinued in 1982. The Mustang featured an offset body design and shape, a separate on/off/phase reversing slider for each of the two pickups, and a new tremolo/vibrato system. Since this model targeted students, it was produced with either a 3/4 size, 22.5″ scale length neck, or a 24″ scale length neck.
However, the Mustang was reissued in the 1990s because at that time it became popular and gained almost cult status among alternative and grunge rock guitarists. This guitar model was used by David Byrne, Thurston Moore, Kurt Cobain and other.
