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 pick 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.

Probably one of the best Bass deals out there. If you are ok with having a short scale bass then look no further. Sounds amazing, QC is pretty decent except for some sharp frets. The sound PUNCHES, has a pretty wide array of tonal options for a single pickup passive bass. Only thing I would change is the strings. The Fender flats kinda suck. I used the Dunlop flats and its like the bass is alive.
