    "This bass delivers!!"

    This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.

    Sound:
    Typical Fender sound and punch.
    Feature:
    No accessories or case included, but as far as the bass features go, the controls are simple and easy.
    Quality:
    The quality is what you expect from a Fender bass. It is rock solid and beautifully finished.
    Manufacturer Support:
    No contact with the factory so far except to register the warranty.
    Value:
    It is well worth the price.
    The Wow Factor:
    I always prefered the body shape of the Jazz bass, but this bass has the looks. I have already received a number of favorable comments on its aesthetics. Mine is Vintage White.
    Overall:
    If it wasn't for my problem hand, I would have never sold my Jazz Bass, but this bass delivers. It has all the quality, sound, looks, and dependability that one expects from Fender. I'm very pleased with the Mustang, and I highly recommend it for someone who needs or prefers a short scale bass.

    "Killer fender tone, light, easier to play, and some serious mojo..."

    This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.

    Sound:
    Sounds great, amazing pickups that are proprietary Seymour-Duncan/Fender made, that are mated perfectly with this wood, size, and body type to produce a classic Fender P-bass type tone with it's own character.
    Feature:
    One pickup, one volume knob, one tone knob. It's all this thing needs. You cannot get a bad tone with this thing. The neck is beautiful, I'm really impressed with the quality, as it's Made In Japan.
    Ease of Use:
    Plug it in to a decent bass amp or go direct into a quality computer interface and it will sound good. A touch of eq to taste and you're good to go.
    Quality:
    Very nice quality, made in Japan. The neck is smooth and has great poly finish.
    Value:
    It's not cheap, but you will be happy, especially if you have wrist problems, this thing is easier to play, but doesn't leave you lacking in tone.
    The Wow Factor:
    It has wow factor if you crank this baby through any quality sound system that can reproduce bass down to 25hz. I ran this 2012 Mustang bass through a spectrum analyzer, along with my 2012 Jazz, and they both go down to 25hz! I'm impressed.
    Overall:
    This Mustang bass is impressive, it's a comfortable and unique instrument, and sounds hi-fi, deep, clear, defined, and full of character. Excellent pickups couple with Leo Fender doing the math on his last design for Fender, woodwise, design, etc. It feels, plays and sounds GREAT, I cannot put this thing down. It's SO EASY TO PLAY, which makes you play way better. Just got a 2012 American Jazz too, which sounds slightly chunkier and "clankier" as it has more versatility dur to 2 pickups. But that's ok...I I compared the two basses through an RME UFX top notch interface. The mustang holds it's own for against the Jazz for half the price, 90% of the tone of the Jazz, very workable, you won't know it's a short scale if you close your eyes. The Mustang has a charm and mojo, I bonded with it instantly, it has the ease of playing a slim neck guitar, while still sounding a crazy deep Fender bass. It also looks cooler in person than the internet pics. Had to tweak the intonation when I got it though.

    "Short size, but huge sound!"

    This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.

    Sound:
    This short scale bass is definitely not short on sound. It is Fender all the way. With just the volume control and tone control, enough sound can be achieved for any style of music being played. By my careful selection of my amp's settings I truly can get any sound that I have in my head. This bass sounds outstanding!
    Feature:
    Did not come with any features except fot a tiny hex wrench to adjust the saddles. What more does one expect from a bass of this quality and low price?
    Quality:
    The Mustang bass is very well made. My only complaint is that the tuners loosen too easily. I plan to replace these soon. Although the strings that came on this bass are very high quality, I changed them to flatwounds with the same configuration (40, 60, 75, 95).
    Manufacturer Support:
    I have not had a need to contact Fender but from what I understand, they are a good company to deal with.
    Value:
    This bass is worth every cent that it costs. You get a lot of bass for the money.
    The Wow Factor:
    I needed a short-scale bass due to a hand condition that worsens with time playing my long-scale basses. It seems to alleviate my condition aggravated by long finger stretching.
    Overall:
    Because I love having the best of everything, I can picture myself purchasing another short-scale bass in the not to distant future. It might just be the other offered color. Other than the tuners on the vintage-looking headstock, I like everything about this bass.

    "Probaply the best short scale Bass on the market!"

    Quality:
    The factory setup is a little too buzzy
    Overall:
    It is a nice addition to a collection. Probably not what one would want as their primary Bass.
