The Fender Mustang PJ Bass Guitar in Sienna Sunburst has been a perennial favourite of bass guitarists the world over since its inception. From The Rolling Stones to My Chemical Romance this enduring design has long been an underground hero and now adds Fender's venerable P Bass and J Bass pickups to the mix, giving a much-loved icon an update.
Alder Offset Body
The Fender Mustang PJ Bass has an offset body shape crafted from Alder. A Fender staple tonewood, Alder gives a very balanced tone, lightweight enough to deal with the longer shows but retaining enough density to ensure a nice tonal palette. The Mustang is an incredibly versatile guitar, meaning whether you're on stage, in the studio, or in the practice room, you'll find plenty to love about the sound of this bass.
Short Scale Length
A short scale neck ensures that you have a comfortable playing platform, well-suited to players with smaller hands. Not only is it more comfortable, but the shorter scale gives a rich tone with more punch, one of the inherent qualities of having a shorter string length and an integral part of the Mustang Bass sound. With a Maple fretboard, you get a stunning look alongside a sleek and smooth playing feel, with 19 Medium Jumbo frets for you to play with.
This Mustang Bass features a PJ pickup combo, differing from previous iterations of this guitar. You'll find a Vintage-Style Split Single-Coil Precision Bass pickup in the middle position and a Vintage-Style Single-Coil Jazz Bass pickup in the bridge position. They're home to Alnico 5 magnets for a meatier response and fatter tone, working fantastically well with the punchy nature of the short scale length. With a Master Tone and 3-Position Toggle switch, you'll find plenty of ways to craft your perfect tone here.
The Mustang PJ Bass features a 4-Saddle Standard bridge allowing easy adjustment of intonation and action. Combined with Fender Vintage-Style tuning machines you get a rock-solid tuning stability and incredible performance whether on stage or in the studio.
The Fender Mustang PJ Bass Guitar in Sienna Sunburst gives you flexible and thunderous bass tone with a smooth playing style and slick visual style. Given an update for 2020, this guitar is sure to pack a punch whether you're on stage, in the studio or at home.
