Fender PJ Mustang Electric Bass, Olympic White

With its 30" scale, this Mustang Bass seems tailor-made for players of smaller-stature. The P and J Bass pickups create huge tones that defy the bass' size. (3) Read 3 reviews for this product | Rate and review this product

Fender PJ Mustang Electric Bass

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.

Pete Griffin shows off the new Fender Mustang bass:


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" 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"-radius maple 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.

Check out the new Offset Fender Duo-Sonic HS:


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. A classic instrument, upgraded with features for the modern bassist, the short- scale Mustang Bass PJ is sure to please with its flexible sound, easy playing feel and slick style.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (3 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Awesome short scale bass"
Overall: I bought my Mustang PJ Bass because it looked good and the video reviews seemed positive. When I took it out of the box I noticed that the fit and finish were perfect. The string height was set at the factory and was dead-on for the way I like my strings. I did have to spend a few minutes with my tuner setting the intonation, but other than that everything else on the bass was exactly right. The bass is well balanced and lighter weight than my other short scale basses. I've learned that a good indicator of sound and build quality is to balance a bass on your leg and pluck a string. If you feel the entire bass vibrate from headstock to endpin then it was built correctly and should sound good if the pickups do their job. There is a bit of single coil hum from the pickups, but that's just normal with any single coil system. I may eventually change the pickups out for some EMG Classics just to get rid of that hum, but for now I will just play it as is. The only other modification is that I am putting strap locks on this bass.Bottom line is that this is a good quality short scale bass at a good price point.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great Bass!"
Overall: Another great zZounds transaction. Out of the box my bass was set up next to perfect. Everything is straight and aligned properly. The finish on both the neck and body is without blemish. This is a great sounding and playing bass as well. The neck feels especially fast with the satin finish. Compared to my CIJ Mustang it's similar in feel but different in tonal capability. Overall Fender did a great job with cost vs quality on this model. If you're a serious player like me just trying to give your hands a rest, or at a beginner level who's willing to spend some extra cash on your first instrument, this bass is for you. I'll replace the pickups with USA models eventually but the set it comes with are more than fine for general use in any genre. If you're looking for a short-scale bass it doesn't get much better than this folks. Get one before Fender discontinues the Mustang Bass again for the fifth time.

What Our Customers Are Saying About zZounds "I've bought several items from zZounds. I had purchased a bass amp and had to return it because of a manufacturing defect. I received a return slip and shipped it back with no problems. The shipping on a bass combo amp isn't cheap! I've even used the online chat to discuss equipment and actually talked to a bass player that gave some great recommendations on filling out the total sound of my rig. zZounds rocks and will be my exclusive gear store!"
