Fender has announced that as of March 20 2020 they have dropped support for Fender FUSE software, meaning for computer support for the Mustang I-V series amplifiers. However, Fender Consumer Relations has advised at least one customer that the software can still be downloaded from these locations:

Mac version: https://www.fmicassets.com/fender/support/software/fender_software/fender_fuse/mac/FenderFUSE_FULL_2.7.1.dmg

Windows version: https://www.fmicassets.com/fender/support/software/fender_software/fender_fuse/pc/FenderFUSE_FULL_2.7.1.exe

We’re glad that Fender has not abandoned their Mustang and Mustang v.2 owners. They’re great amps with plenty of life and music left in them. Stay tuned for more information.

  1. Hi Richard, I am about to purchase a Mustang IV v.2 Amp and I downloaded the “Fuse” software ignorer to purchase and run your patches. The current version of OS I am running on my MAC won’t run the Fuse Software. What are my options? Do you think I should still purchase the Mustang IV v.2 Amp or are there more updated options? (I plan on purchasing the amp tomorrow, Sat 7/11) Thanks

  2. Hi Bob, the first thing I can say is that my licensees think the M3 sounds better than the IV; guitarists seem to agree too. So my first advice is to hold out for a Mustang 3.

    Regarding FUSE: FUSE has always been flaky on the Mac. I recommend that you borrow a PC compatible to install FUSE and the patches. I know for a fact that FUSE runs fine on every Windows machine from Win 7 to 10.

    let me know if you need more. Thanks, RH

  3. Richard,
    I have Fuse (Windows) running on my Mustang 1 v1. Will your harp patch set work on a v1?
