Overview

Known as a true renaissance man of the modern music scene, Justin Meldal-Johnsen’s bass credits include Beck, Nine Inch Nails, Drake and more. His production credits include Jimmy Eat World, Paramour and M83, among others. JMJ is a shining example of today’s breed of multi-genre musician/producers, ever pushing boundaries and inspiring others.

From studio to stage, Justin’s treasured ’67 Mustang Bass is his tool of choice. Fender teamed up with him to create a signature 4-string modeled after his vintage Daphne Blue instrument—the Justin Meldal-Johnsen Road Worn Mustang Bass. Powered by a custom-spec split-coil pickup, the JMJ Road Worn Mustang bass is perfect for laying down punchy basslines with plenty of Fender mojo.

The 30” scale gives it a tight, focused tone while the modern 9.5”-radius fingerboard with rolled edges offers a familiar feel that will make any bassist feel right at home. Designed for comfort and speed, this bass also has stage-ready style. From the nicks and picks scratches on the body to the worn-in feel of the neck to the aged hardware, this bass shows the marks of an instrument that has earned its stripes out on the road.

Check out the unique tone and amazing feel of the Justin Meldal-Johnsen Road Worn Mustang Bass.

    Comments about Fender Justin Meldal-Johnsen Road Worn Mustang Electric Bass:

    I was looking specifically for a short-scale bass and the Fender Mustang came to mind. Fender (not including Squier) has two Mustangs in the lineup, a PJ bass and the JMJ Mustang, which is essentially a roadworn '66 Mustang reissue. While both basses are good instruments, I went with the sound and character of the JMJ bass. What can I say? I like pretty much everything about this bass. It has a great neck, excellent vintage sound, and looks good with an authentic vintage vibe. I'm not normally a fan of "aged" instruments, but it looks good, not overdone, on this bass. It arrived with a decent setup, except for intonation. Achieving good intonation on the E and A strings took a bit of work. The balance is very good, no neck dive, the frets are smooth and the fretboard flows under my fingers. Even though it has a single passive tone control, you get a lot of variation from it within its range, so it sounds great with a wide variety of music. The construction is quite solid and the fretboard is made from Rosewood, unlike the P-J Mustang. Its size will make it easier to travel with. Fender includes a decent padded gig bag, but I may purchase a hard case for this bass in the future.

    My only negative comment about this bass is that because of the design of the Mustang neck, fretting becomes a little challenging above the 12th fret, but it's not a major issue. I'm very pleased with this purchase and would recommend the JMH Mustang Bass to anyone looking for a short scale bass.
