Mustang Bass PJ – another great addition to Fender’s Offset series. Seen here in Olympic White, this versatile bass gives you the best of both worlds thanks its PJ pickup configuration.
Precision Bass or Jazz Bass – Get You a Bass That Can Do Both
Originally released in 1964, the Mustang bass has been going strong for over fifty years, due in no small part to its versatility and has been used by bassists in a variety of bands including such diverse acts as The Rolling Stones and My Chemical Romance.
Classic Mustang Style Modernised
Alder has been used to craft the classic Mustang style body shape which features a double cutaway providing easy reach of the higher frets; perfect for solos and adventurous bass lines.
A Maple neck joins the body through sturdy bolt-on construction enhancing the mid-range punch of this beautiful bass.
The Mustang Bass also features Fender’s classic short scale length of 30” making it smaller than your average bass guitar with a standard scale length of 34”.
This shorter scale length aids playability, particularly for beginners and smaller players or anyone who prefers that easier reach. Tone is also enhanced with a tighter top end, more pronounced low end and a scoop in the mid-range.
The Pau Ferro fretboard has a 9.5” radius and holds 19 medium jumbo frets along with simple white dot position inlays.
Vintage Style Electronics
Giving you fantastic versatility the Fender Mustang Bass comes fitted with both P Bass and J Bass pickups.
This PJ pickup configuration sees a Vintage Style split single-coil Precision Bass pickup in the middle pickup position alongside a Vintage Style single-coil Jazz Bass bridge pickup.
A three-way pickup selector switch allows you to use either of the pickups individually or a combination of the two while two control knobs in the form of Vintage Style black Jazz Bass knobs allow you to adjust the Master Volume and Master Tone.
High Quality Hardware
At the headstock you’ll find a set of four Fender Vintage Style tuning machines with their open gear construction providing some extra visual flair.
A four-saddle hardtail bridge provides precise intonation and solid tuning stability while increasing sustain.
Adding that extra touch of class, you’ll find that the Mustang Bass has a special neck plate that has been engraved with the classic Fender “F” logo.
Timeless Style and Versatility
Having been popular worldwide for over fifty years, the Mustang Bass is one of Fender’s most enduring bass designs.
Awesome visual presence and excellent Fender craftsmanship along with vintage style pickups in a fantastically versatile PJ configuration makes the Fender Mustang Bass PJ a real all-rounder workhorse bass guitar.
