Despite its short 30" scale, the Mustang Bass cranks out fat tone like a champ. A single Fender-designed alnico split-coil pickup produces a round thump.

"A True American Classic"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I've owned one before and had to sell it. Incredible instrument. I've always preferred short scale basses because they're so much fun to play. Had to buy this one. I like playing this bass more than my 2001 American Series Precision bass! You won't be disappointed. Perhaps some minor tweaking may be needed, but worth every cent.
It's a classic Mustang sound.
Ease of Use
The Mustang bass was originally made for younger players and students, but it has a serious professional following as well.
The only problem initially was rough fret ends which were quickly taken care of. Look for pro advice online as to how to do this.
Because I owned one before, I feel this is worth the selling price.
No contact with Fender about any concerns. Unless it's something out of my ability I'll handle it myself.
The Wow Factor
When I first saw the "Vintage Vibe" Mustang bass, it owned me.
Semi Pro bassist and lyricist
Rock bluegrass and some country.
