OVERVIEW

Classic Fender tone in a comfortable, small-scale platform.

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.

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 rosewood 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.

    Comments about Fender Mustang PJ Bass Pau Ferro Fingerboard:

    Bought this because I wanted a short scale bass due to issues with my hands.
    The neck and body are okay, the electronics not so much.
    The pau ferro fretboard is not my thing. It ALWAYS looks and feels dry - no amount of oil helps.
    The switch is scratchy and can cut out. The JBass pickup is punchy, the Pbass pickup sounds really good. The pots and jack were cheap, Asian parts and simply felt bad, so I replaced them with American CTS pots and a Swtichcraft jack, respectively. I threw in a better capacitor while I was in there.
    I understand that Fender is trying to hit a certain price point, but at nearly 600 USD they could use a bit higher quality components.
    In other words, be prepared to get a good setup.
    Also, restringing it with flatwounds give a better, rounder sound.
