Justin Meldal-Johnsen Road Worn Mustang Bass; a fantastic recreation of world renowned musician and producer, Justin Meldal-Johnsen’s favoured bass.
Justin Meldal-Johnsen Signature Bass Guitar
Performing with world class artists such as Beck, Nine Inch Nails, Drake and more and producing work by arts such as Jimmy Eat World, Paramour and others, JMJ constantly pushes boundaries.
Whether on the stage or in the studio, Justin’s top choice is his cherished 1967 Mustang Bass.
Collaborating with Meldal-Johnsen himself, Fender have recreated his incredible vintage Daphne Blue bass and deliver it to you in the form of the Fender Justin Meldal-Johnsen Road Worn Mustang Bass.
Custom Seymour Duncan split single-coil Mustang bass pickups give this awesome bass guitar its driving tone with that classic Fender vibe and incredible punchiness.
This bass has a unique tone, with a simple two-knob control section allowing you to adjust the Master Volume and Master Tone.
Even when picking up the Justin Meldal-Johnsen Road Worn Mustang Bass for the first time, it’ll feel like an old friend.
Its Alder body has been finished with a special Road Worn Nitrocellulose Lacquer, giving it the appearance of a guitar that has seen a lot of love… and a lot of action.
Maple has been used for the comfortable “C” shape neck which features a 9.5” radius Rosewood fingerboard with 19 Medium Jumbo frets and aged pearloid dots. Rolled edges make it feel like a bass you’ve been playing for years.
The 30” scale length provides a nicely tight and focused tone while the thicker headstock adds mass for a fuller sound.
On the body you will find a 4-saddle Mustang Bass strings-through-body bridge and a 4-ply aged white pearloid pickguard.
Standard open-gear machine heads with comfortable “lollipop” tuners allow for precise and secure tuning.
