    i want to get one to carry my mustang and my short scale jag on short trips to the rehearsal studio. can anyone here confirm it will fit both?

    also is the quality okay - handles well sewn on, etc?

    thanks!

    pcake : i'm responding to give the thread a bump! i was interested in seeing the input of others myself (thinking about a short or medium scale fretless for a long time now....).

    hope someone jumps in as you have a definite/timely interest! :)

    I’m interested also and i’ll up the ante with interest in fitting a Gibson EB-3 (I have a Mustang as well)

    I’ll try to get to researching it myself, but probably won’t get to it today.

  4. I own one and my Fender Modern Player short scale Jazz Bass is sitting in it. Seems to be well made. Zippers work well and there are two pockets, pair of carry handles and back straps. The padding is not as thick as most, maybe 20 mm or so, but that is fine because it stays with me constantly. Fender logo is silver and the bag is very attractive.

    The Mustang P/J fits perfectly.

    The Fender Modern Player Short Scale Jazz Bass was made for only a short time. 30" scale, slightly downsized body. Pickups are PJ configuration, and colors were White Blonde and Candy Apple red. I gig with mine. There are a couple of threads on it.

    thanks for the info!

    i guess since i already have a P/J mustang, i don't need to go hunting one of the short scale jazzes down, but i did feel GAS rearing its head there for a minute...

    hey, the gig bag is $10 off at guitar center right now, so i pulled the trigger on mine :)

    it's $5 off at sweetwater, too.

  10. Glad you found it so quickly. I preordered one and took me about 5 1/2 moths for it to come in at Sweetwater. No one had them at the time. Interestingly, When the PJ Mustang came out a year or so ago they originally came with the gigbag. Then they raised the price and discontinued the practice of selling the bag with it. There is also a short scale hardshell case sold by rondomusuic.com if you want to go that route eventually.

    they run out of those cases at sweetwater constantly. i was on the list to be emailed when they came into stock this week, and so many were pre-ordered that they sold out before 5 am the same day.

    a hardshell case at rondo? that's very good to know - the mustang hard case is pretty expensive and doesn't sound like it's the best quality.
     
  12. It is probably not much better. Wouldn't doubt they come from the same factory. Considerably less in price, however.

    If you’re looking for a step up from that Fender Urban bag, I’d take a look at the Gator Pro Go Ultimate for electric guitar. I use it for my CIJ Mustang and my Mustang PJ. After you remove the velcro’d in pad at the base it fits perfectly. And holy storage space.
