    Have just received a mustang bass in sonic blue finish, here's why i feel the title is justified,

    Firstly I got the bass after 2 and a half months, this is because it was withheld by the customs office in my country and i know for a fact that it was there for 2 months and i also know for a fact that the goods are kept in appalling conditions as i have witnessed this myself,
    The store owner whom i ordered it through said he had not touched the bass or set it up in any way and he was worried because the cardboard case was severely damaged through the customs office. (lets not get into this topic it gets my blood boiling)
    Inspite of all this when i plugged it in all i had to do was tune it, everything else was perfect, intonation was v good, no fret buzz, no frets sticking out, no truss rod adjustment needed, no bridge adjustment and same with the pickup height,
    and all this after it has travelled over 9000 miles and in very varied weather conditions (where i live is extremely hot and humid) and these are all signs of a well made instrument and i am way more than relieved :)

    So hats off to Fender Mexico, please keep it up and big thanks for this bass, the wait (and stress) were well worth it.
    Has anybody else had a similar experience?

    I don't like this cliche, but I really think Fender slammed it way out of the park with this bass.

    I'm loving mine and considering picking up a second.

    congrats on FINALLY getting your new bass.

    and i agree with you. i've played several mustangs and i own one that was never out of its fender box, and every one has been very nicely set up and a joy to play.

    hope you enjoy your mustand as much as i'm loving mine!

    Cool. its good to know that guitar manufacturers are being competitive in the right way, that is, improving the quality of the instruments instead of fighting the cost cutting war :)
