Iconic offset construction with a chambered design

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 it remains lightweight and extremely comfortable for smaller players. The Ben Gibbard Mustang lightens the load even further, with a chambered ash body that hangs comfortably from your shoulders for those long hours spent rehearsing and performing. Moreover, the Ben Gibbard Mustang boasts an undercover hardtail bridge masquerading as a vintage-style vibrato bridge, giving you a cool, classic look along with rock-solid reliability!

Two vintage-inspired angled single-coil pickups

The soul of any great Mustang is its angled single-coil pickups, and the Ben Gibbard Mustang proves is no exception. Its vintage-inspired single-coils serve up the clear, organic tones of Fender’s original Mustang single-coils, while offering a crisp, Strat-like tonality that further expands this instrument\'s versatile voice. A 3-position rotary pickup switch selects between the tubular-sounding neck pickup and aggressive bridge unit.

Neck designed for the modern player

Another distinguishing aspect of the Ben Gibbard Mustang its Modern \"C\" profile neck. While this hot-rodded Mustang does indeed feature a vintage-correct 24-inch scale length, its fingerboard is designed with a 9.5-inch 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’s Modern \"C\" profile fills your hand in a very satisfying manner, and 22 medium-jumbo frets present a wonderful middle ground for numerous styles.
