I've waited a long time for this one. For the longest time you couldn't get a quality short scale bass, but this is it. I have modded and hot rodded mine to the hilt. Custom order pickup, pickguard, knobs, bridge cover. It was a good bass to begin with, but now, it's my "signature model." I would highly recommend this bass.

This one is some kind of reduced Precision Bass, close to the same tone and feel but smaller! The neck is just great, it has a jazz bass profile I think, really comfortable and fast playing. The Duncan Designed just made the job better than decent. I think that now a days Squier is just what you really need if you don't tour the world all year long but want something cool, that has the sound and feel, for a so affordable price. Love that bass!
(Just to compare, because I got these two, in front of the Mikey Way Mustang Bass, this vintage modified has a brighter sound, which is cool and complementary to the Way's huge bass frequency rumble. A great couple those two piece of sound!)

Been wanting a mustang Bass for a long time now. Mainly for the short scale design. With a lack of flexibility in my hands, mostly a result of hard work, not injury, the shorter scale allows me more comfort, movability and confidence in my playing. Lots of reasearch went into the choosing of this Bass Guitar, list after list of "pros and cons" of one model vs another. Not just Fender vs. Squier, competitor models as well. Searching online reviews, local store personnel and word of mouth.
Great instrument, great price, well balanced when strapped around my shoulders, color is perrty and the sound is great too. Very pleased with my purchase.
