What we say:
Fender's recent Offset range celebrates models from the 50s that, at the time were designed as student models. Time has said otherwise though: guitars like the Mustang and the Duo-Sonic have been so integral to the sound of Alternative Rock, Post-Punk and Grunge that they have long been seen as legitimate choices for artists unafraid to stray from the beaten path.
Fender have gone for a pair of P90 pickups for this ’90’ edition of the Mustang reissues. Featuring the historic 24” scale length, the Mustang 90 will prove easy to play for anybody due to the decrease in tension across the strings.
A range of excellent grunge-retro finishes, including this Olympic White, match up with a pearloid pickguard to make a very cool ‘indie-rock’ guitar. The neck is a modern C profile with a Fender standard radius of 9.5” on the Pau Ferro fingerboard.
Those P90 pickups, or rather MP-90 models as Fender would have it, sound awesome! We have long espoused the merits of these pickups: with sparkle AND grunt you get a fantastic range of sounds that are just great, without resorting to extra circuitry like coil taps and so on. We are happy to see these here!
The Mustang 90 is at its happiest when bending notes with an octave fuzz maxed out or quietly jangling out delicate arpeggios. Players who want to carve their own path should check it out immediately.
