Thought i'll contribute a thread, its been awhile since i have.


On a recent work trip to Japan i went looking for a nice old acoustic, however i decided i couldn't take the risk of not being able to hand carry it on the plane, and set out looking for a Fender Japan Mustang, always wanted one, and that same week, the JMJ Mustang had started to ship out.

shockingly I only found one mustang bass in the ochanamizu district, and the usual suspects in shinjuku/shibuya.

The mustang was at bass planet, which is where i chanced upon my latest purchase.

I've wanted one since playing one at the Swop shop in Melbourne, and there was a really clean one in Sydney that same time period, both were solid headstocks.

Eb and Bb are where I cut my teeth, but that was a thousand years ago.
Still haven’t got my copy out. Fuck I’m useless lol. I’ll get there :clap:

Both Eb and Bb keys actually lend themselves to open string chromaticism rakes ala James Jamerson / Anthony Jackson
