Great bass, but a little rough around the edges
DirtyHarry19 03.10.2021
Overall this is a great bass.
I have small hands, so all I really wanted was a short-scale bass to start learning, as the 34'' ones made rehearsals very hurtful very fast. In that regard, this bass delivers: smaller frets means easier to reach frets, which makes my life easier. And also it sounds really good.
But there is a problem with this bass, and it's because of its price. Yes, it's cheap, but that comes at a cost: no versatility, only 20 frets and it's very uncomfortable to reach the last two (I know it's a short-scale, but I've seen better), and single pickup with only volume and tone controls. With this price, you know what you get, but other basses have SO much more versatility than this one, for a similar price (looking at Yamaha and Cort).
If you want something like the real thing, but not the real thing, this is it. If the inconveniences listed above are too much of a nuisance to you, then maybe you should look for something else.

Poorly finished
Gynske 22.10.2020
This bass is what you'd expect for this price.
Except for it being badly finished. The string bushings at the back were loose. The pickuard was allready scratched.

All the mounted hardware is of good quality but it'll need e proper set-up. The thrussrod works great. But the nut - action is too high.

!!! be aware, it is a short-scale bass with string-through body and bridge. The bridge does not allow you to go directly through. There are no holes for it. So finding proper length strings can be a chalange since long scale strings are too long but some short scale strings may no be long enough.

I've had this bass for a while now and I still consider it to be a good purchase. The fit and finish of the instrument is good. There are no blemishes or dings in the finish from the factory. There were some odd spots on the chrome finish, but after some rubbing they came off. The only problem I have encountered has to do with the pickup. The height adjustment bolts are threaded into the plastic of the pickup. When I tried to raise the pickup, this thread started to fail. As a result, I had to fastened the bolts with a few nuts. It is not an expensive instrument, but still, it shouldn't happen.
The bass plays nice and isn't heavy. Mine is around 2,5 kilograms. Despite the gloss lacquer, the neck doesn't feel sticky. It has a nice, clear but punchy sound.
To conclude, the pickup problem was rather annoying, but once fixed the Mustang bass proved to be a fun and reliable instrument for the money!
