FENDER Justin Meldal Johnsen ROAD WORN MUSTANG BASS Short Scale Black 67509
This is a 2019 Fender Justin Meldal Johnsen Road Worn Mustang bass in black. The bass is in excellent cosmetic and playing condition. It's modeled after a '67 Mustang bass and adds a Seymour Duncan pickup. The C-shaped neck is a 30-inch short scale. The relic work on it looks killer. Better than most I see on the net. Frets are in great condition. All stock except the knobs are Fender amp knobs and tuners upgraded to black clover head tuners. Weight is 7 pounds, 4 ounces. No case. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) I may end auction early if it sells elsewhere. Thanks for looking!

See video demo below.
All setups are done by our in-house luthier. Setup includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. We spray out any pots that are noisy, turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. Basses get the same treatment minus the string change. Thanks!
I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.

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 at Sweetwater have really fallen for this signature instrument from Fender and know you will too.
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.
