Sweet Signature Bass from Fender

Bassist Justin Meldal-Johnsen is a true renaissance artist who has played with the likes of Beck, Nine Inch Nails, and Drake, among others. A dedicated bass player since the age of 14, "JMJ," as he is affectionately called by fans and music insiders alike, switched to the Fender Mustang Bass exclusively over a decade ago and has never looked back. Now Fender has partnered with JMJ to design the Fender Justin Meldal-Johnsen Road Worn Bass and bring it to the public. The Fender JMJRW is designed specifically to match the vintage ’67 Mustang Bass JMJ plays both on the road and in the studio. An alder body, maple "C" neck, and rosewood fretboard comprise the quality tonewoods for this killer bass. A single Custom Seymour Duncan Split Single-Coil pickup is featured and puts out thick, meaty low-end tone. Bass players here have really fallen for this signature instrument from Fender and know you will too.

That amazing neck

The Fender JMJ Mustang features a maple neck with a rosewood fretboard that makes it smooth, fast, and comfortable. At 30", the JMJ Mustang scale is considerably shorter than a regular-sized bass, making it easier to move up and down the neck. Or, if you're into tapping like JMJ, this neck is great for that too. This shorter scale also means a more pronounced bottom end, slightly tighter top end, and a bit more scoop in the midrange. Whatever style you are playing, this classic "C"-shaped neck gives you options for exploration and variation in approach and attack.

Great pickup for awesome low-end tone

A single custom-spec split-coil Seymour Duncan pickup gives the JMJ Road Worn Mustang bass plenty of punch and power, providing excellent tone for live performance. Vintage black plastic Master Volume and Master Tone controls put you in the driver's seat for stylizing your own approach to laying down a rhythmic low end to any song. In addition, a rad 4-ply aged white Pearloid pickguard adds even more vibe and style to this already sweet bass.

Great worn look and vibe

Fender and JMJ have put all the details into this Mustang Bass to make it resemble the one JMJ plays. From the worn-through paint on the body to pick-nicks on the front, all the way to the aged hardware, the JMJ Mustang looks and feels road-worn and ready to play.
