Difference Between American and Mexican fenders

fenders-450American vs Mexican fenders

When talking of fenders, some love to have an American fender and others prefer the Mexican ones. Though both the American and the Mexican fenders almost play the same, they are different in various aspects, including their body, routing, frets and many other things.

One of the first differences that one can come across between American and Mexican fenders, is their price. The American fender is priced a little higher than it’s Mexican counterpart.

Another difference that can be seen, is in the wood that is used for making the fenders. The Mexican fender comes with a five to seven piece alder, and the American fender comes with a three-piece ash. The American fender comes with a more superior wood than that of the Mexican fender. The body of a Mexican fender has a polyester finish. On the other hand, the American fender has a polyurethane body finish.

Another major difference that can be noticed is the frets. While the American fender has 22 frets, the Mexican fender has only 21 frets. The American fender gives a more tonal range than the Mexican fender.

The Mexican fender has one-humbucking and two single coil routers; the American fender has three cavity routs.

When comparing the truss rod, the American fender has a bi-flex headstock adjustment, which gives the musician a convex and concave adjustment. On the contrary, the Mexican fender has a headstock adjustment, and the musician depends on the string tension for concave adjustments. While the Mexican fenders come with a standard four bolt neck, the American fenders come with a four bolt micro tilt, that allows for more string adjustments.

Both fenders come in a Synchronized Tremolo style, but the American fenders have stainless steel saddles.
