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!
