Real Authentic Fender Mustang with a big sound

Rogertvs, 22.05.2018
After a wait of 6 months it was all worth it!
The build quality is topnotch and i love the Roadworn look, it is done very nice and in much detail everywhere, even the thumbrest and hardware, screws, and the nitro laquer. It is not overdone... very,very nice. This shortscale bass sings with flatwounds (La Bella!) and playing with a pick, for me this is THE sound i was after. The real 60's tic tac sound. Justin knows his thing.
The custom Seymour Duncan pickups are hot and big, but nice sounding and needed a little lowering at the E and G string side. Feel,fretwork and neck are great, nice thick neck like the original! and what a sustain...A very high Quality instrument (mexico is not an issue her anymore!! ) and for sure an collectors item after a few years when they stop making these....
Buy one! It is the closest thing to an original vintage Mustang but with very reasonable price. Thomann thanx for keeping me notice about the delays.

Vintage wish!

Well, my opinion is not at all objective as far as I'm loyal to Leo's brand. My choice is mainly PB. But I cracked several months ago for the Flea Signature JB for its Relic side and well, again, I'm not disappointed.
Irreproachable finish. The reliquage is more discreet and really authentic. I will leave you judge on the fashion of the Relic but I must say that it is really neat.
The color is to fall. The mechanics lollipop are the most beautiful effect and are slightly aged but nothing more. The control buttons are also slightly faded. The yellow pickguard artificially does its job. The head has also suffered the ravages of time but in a realistic way. So aesthetic side, nothing to say, it's very neat. We really feel like we have an instrument that has made a lot of noise.
The shortscale sleeve does not spoil me more than that. We have its bearings. Flat thread ropes are a great idea. All my bass are equipped except Flea JB. Its weight is rather consistent for a template of this type and the head tends to dive but hey, they are the perfectly balanced bass?
The grip is fast.
Side sound, I always play with the fingers and the tone to zero. No blatant change with my PB. We are in the 70s with a rather round sound and relatively clear bass and without being deaf. Cross-strings do their job.
One has the impression to hold a toy but while playing with a true jewel of violin making. Paradoxical and that is what makes the charm of this mustang.
The cover sold with the bass is a cover made for the classic bass so the girl tends to wriggle inside. I am going to acquire the adapted Fender model story of pampering it.
In the end, very good choice, but again, it's totally subjective.
I think the price is a bit excessive. We surf on the fashion and reputation of the brand. When we see The Mustang PJ is almost 50% cheaper, we can ask some questions. But hey, it's a buy of heart and therefore with a share of irrational. It remains to acquire a Jaguar, and the collection will be complete !!!!!!

Thank you to Thomman for the management of the command of this bass which has been repeatedly announced and repeatedly rejected.
