NBD! JMJ Mustang Bass!

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Powdered Toast, Jun 9, 2020.

  1. Well, I finally came back around to the Mustang camp. I used to own one of the CIJ Mustangs and I have regretted selling it every since I let it go. I cleared out some other gear including my Jazz Bass and got a JMJ Mustang Bass instead. I just love the look, tone, and playability of the Mustang.

    Right out of the box it plays pretty good! Needed a few intonation tweaks and a mild twist of the truss rod, but otherwise it's great!

    Congrats on your new bass. I love their tone and feel. Do you find this bass has neck dive? I've always wondered...

    Nice. It’s the only bass I’ve been playing for a while now. Love the neck on these.

    Maybe someone has mentioned this before, but why does it look like they used long scale strings on a short scale bass? All the original Fender flatwounds I've seen on the JMJ basses have the E string well wrapped around the post and the silks way to high on the other strings?

    The JMJ comes with Fender 9050 flats which AFAIK are only made in long scale length.

    That's kind of a bummer since it seems so much effort went into making this bass right, and to have the wrong length strings (needs medium scale) is the only thing that seems off on this bass.
