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 - a punchy split single-coil P Bass middle pickup and a growling Jazz Bass bridge pickup in an unbeatable pairing that combines the best of both sonic worlds. 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 Pau Ferro 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 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.

My first short scale bass. Very impressed. Solidly built with the Fender quality. I'm playing it almost every day. Don't let the size fool you. Tough versatile working bass. The tone I'm getting from this combined with my rumble 40 Amp is excellent. I'm truly happy with this purchase. Recommend it very highly.
