    Is there a Fender Mustang Club?

    If not, am I now #1? 27331605_1759600200725617_8596958094515530116_n.

    Me too... this little beauty arrived yesterday (yup - NBD!), brand new gorgeous light green pearl. Not one of the originals like above, but I played it for three hours in a jazz jam last night and the guys were blown away by its clarity, authoritative low end, and absolutely even presence across all strings (I spent over an hour just working on the PU and string levels).

    I got it for two main reasons: at 8.85lb I can stand up to play it for a long time (my p-bass is 10.5lb). And, the short scale is a lot easier on my aging slightly arthritic left hand, though I have some work to do to be able to switch between them.

    aww... gorgeous! I wanted red but balked at the price. The surf pearl ones were special price limited edition.
