Fender Shawn Mendes Musicmaster in Floral
Undeniable '60s Fender Mojo
Designed in collaboration with singer/songwriter Shawn Mendes, the Fender Shawn Mendes Musicmaster Floral solidbody electric guitar delivers classic Fender tonality with undeniably unique character. Based on Fender's iconic offset body style, and dressed in a floral design by French artist Adolphe Millot, the Shawn Mendes Musicmaster inspires instant '60s nostalgia. The Tex-Mex single-coil Strat pickup in the bridge position yields high-output tonality with more bite and girth than traditional Strat pickups. And the Player Series Alnico 2 humbucker in the neck position yields voluptuous, vowel-like tone that also happens to take to fuzz pedals particularly well. Whether you choose it for looks, or for its unique tonal recipe, there's a lot to love about the Fender Shawn Mendes Musicmaster Floral solidbody electric guitar.
Short scale tonality and feel
While many of Fender's more popular models feature a 25.5-inch scale length, the Shawn Mendes Musicmaster Floral borrows the shorter (24-inch) scale length found on some of Fender's '60s originals. Many players agree that shorter scale length equates to "easier" playability, particularly for players with smaller hands. And around Sweetwater, we generally agree that the scale length has a big impact on a guitar's overall tonality — shorter scale lengths generally equate to girthy tone with denser harmonics.
Expanded sonic options via push/pull tone control
Whether you're playing clean or totally fuzzed out, you'll immediately notice that the Player Series Alnico 2 humbucker in the neck position delivers ample output and powerful sonics. And when you desire the lower output and snappier tone of a single-coil pickup, the Shawn Mendes Musicmaster Floral is ready. Its Master Tone control doubles as a push/pull control to split the humbucker for single-coil-style performance.
