NBD - Fender Mustang (CIJ)

After having a couple of false starts with short scale I have finally picked up a beauty of a bass. A 2005 CIJ Fender Mustang in Fiesta Red.
 

It arrived earlier this week and the first thing I did was put some TI Flats. It has a great vintage tone and is a joy to play. The neck is really nice and feels like a jazz bass. 
 

I had a JMJ for a few days before returning it due a to a few little issues. I think the JMJ had the slight edge in terms of tone output from the pickup, that is a very special pickup. But I do prefer the finish and neck on this instrument over the JMJ. 
 

It is such a fun bass to play with a lovely tone. This one is a keeper for sure 😀😀

Nice! I have a similar CIJ mustang in vintage white as well as a JMJ. Both great basses. The JMJ is probably the one I favour most of the time but but the slim neck on the CIJ practically plays itself.

Wow, that is the ultimate combination 😍
