Since its original release in 1964, the Mustang Bass has been one of Fender’s most enduring bass designs, finding its way into the hands of bassists ranging from The Rolling Stones to My Chemical Romance. This updated version of the short-scale underground hero adds the power of our venerable P Bass and J Bass pickups to the traditional Mustang design for flexible, thunderous bass tone with smooth playing feel and slick visual style.

Powered by a time-tested pair of pickups, the Mustang Bass PJ is packed with flexible tone that can match any sonic requirement. A punchy split single-coil P Bass middle pickup is joined by a growling Jazz Bass neck pickup in an unbeatable pairing that combines the best of both sonic worlds. Master volume and tone controls, along with a conventional three-way pickup switch get you to all available sounds. Not only is the 30 in. scale more comfortable for smaller hands, it reduces string tension, creating a looser playing feel that lends itself to nimble playing styles while adding a fat, “blooming” quality to the lower notes and sweetening the higher notes. Topped by a 9.5 in.-radius rosewood fingerboard with 19 medium jumbo frets, the “C”-shaped maple neck is comfortable for all playing styles.

This bass’ smaller body easily fits those with smaller frames while maintaining Fender’s classic stylistic appeal, and is also great for energetic stage performances thanks to its light weight. In a nod to its roots, this modernized instrument includes vintage-style Fender tuning machines and a vintage-style disc string tree, along with a four-bolt neck plate and standard four-saddle string-through-body bridge—all finished in gleaming chrome. Case sold separately.

This is my first Mustang and I'm really very impressed. The short scale is a welcomed change and I do find it easier to get around on the fretboard. This is my third Mexican Fender and the quality control these days is top notch, really on par with Japanese, which is high praise from me, and not much far behind USA. I read a review of someone knocking the pickups but I disagree, Its got that familiar single coil tone that everyone loves from Fenders. And I would have loved to have gotten a discount but I paid full price and it is a fair asking price. The sonic blue color has a cool retro vibe. I'm very happy with mine, no regrets.

Guitar is nice. No complaints there. But had to return the first one due to a scratch, and the second one came damaged (poorly packed by a store in non original box, no tags or paperwork... was "new"). I sent an email to GC and no reply so far. Bummer. I have you guys a lot of $ over the years, but unless someone makes good on this, I'm out.

    By Paul

    from Western NY

    Pros

    • Excellent tone with the PJ pickups
    • Great feel for guitar players
    • Great retro look

    Cons

    • No case included, Fender case is $$$ junk anyway
    • Pickup selector switch is noisy

    Best Uses

      Comments about Fender Mustang PJ Bass, Rosewood Fingerboard:

      I've been a guitar player my whole life, and I've owned 4 basses prior to this one - you know... just for sitting in w/ jams, maybe to record song ideas at home, etc - and they always just sat in the closet getting dusty because the long-scale wide frets were uncomfortable to play for me. This bass looks, feels, sounds spectacular and it plays like butter compared to others, I've already put it thru the moves again and again and so far this is turning me into a bass player! lol

      • Nice Action
      • Stays in Tune...Of Course...It's a Fender

      Cons

      Best Uses

        Comments about Fender Mustang PJ Bass, Rosewood Fingerboard:

        Picked this up in GC in Nashville while waiting for a guy to buy my ABG. This bass plays awesome. The action right off the wall was excellent. No fret buzz, instrument stayed in tune even with hard slapping and aggressive pull offs. The tonal options are excellent. Toggle switch gives you both P/J, P, or J options for various sounds. I liked the P pups with full tone. Volume and Tone knobs for that simplicity. Loved this Bass. Picking one up for myself after Christmas.......or this may be the wife and kids gift to dear old dad.
