    Congratulations! Do you have any opportunity to compare it to a genuine vintage Mustang?

    No. I’ve played the new Offset PJ Mustangs and a CIJ. Of the three, this one is the clear winner.

    Wonder how it compares to the CIJ mustangs. Those were awesome Basses for under 1000

    Sweet! I’d love to hear your thoughts on the JMJ if you get a chance to play one.

    The CIJs are pretty nice, but they have a 1.5” nut. I prefer the slightly beefier 1.625” on the JMJ.

    Comes stock with Fender Flats. Groovy. Love the lollypop tuners too. A prized acquisition to be sure. Enjoy. :bassist:

    I started on an Epiphone Viola Bass and I’ve had GAS for a good short scale since I got my P.

    I like the look of the sonic blue/mint pickguard PJ, but the JMJ is the way to go.

    Nice bass. Everything JMJ says about this instrument in the little video piece he did for Fender is true!

    I’ve got a p bass, a 5 string Ibanez sr and an Ibanez ATK200 along with my short scale..it’s a collection of a little bit of everything.
