Product Description

Fender has teamed up with Justin Meldal-Johnsen to create a signature 4-string designed to match his beloved vintage Daphne Blue instrument! The Justin Meldal-Johnsen Road Worn Mustang Bass is ready to tackle anything from studio to stage. Powered by a custom-spec split-coil pickup, the JMJ Road Worn Mustang bass is perfect for laying down punchy basslines with plenty of Fender mojo. The 30 inch scale gives it a tight, focused tone while the modern 9.5 inch-radius fingerboard with rolled edges offers a familiar feel that will make any bassist feel right at home.

Known as a true renaissance man of the modern music scene, Justin Meldal-Johnsen’s bass credits include Beck, Nine Inch Nails, Drake and more. His production credits include Jimmy Eat World, Paramour and M83, among others. JMJ is a shining example of today's breed of multi-genre musician/producers, ever pushing boundaries and inspiring others.

Designed for comfort and speed, this bass also has stage-ready style. From the nicks and pick scratches on the body to the worn-in feel of the neck to the aged hardware, this bass shows the marks of an instrument that has earned its stripes out on the road. Check out the unique tone and amazing feel of the Justin Meldal-Johnsen Road Worn Mustang Bass.

What is your opinion of this product?
As a country music bassist, I wanted a short scale option to my vintage P Bass. After searching many options, I found myself looking at this Fender JMJ Mustang which was far more appealing than the P/J Mustang cheaper option. I was skeptical of the worn finish but when it arrived I honestly fell in love immediately with the aesthetics. The wear is tasteful done and it just has a great feeling neck. I can’t stand heavy gloss and the “worn” feel of this neck is perfect. The pickups sound amazing. It’s glorious. The tone knob is very usable. I EQ my Markbass amp flat and this bass sings. Looking forward to testing it on the road with my Tech 21 bass fly rig running DI through large PA systems. I’ve never been one for “artist model” guitars but it doesn’t hurt that Justin and I share first names. I highly recommend this bass.

My first bass is a beauty!
What is your opinion of this product?
I play guitar mainly, but I’ve always been intrigued by the bass. A few of my friends play, so I have years of experience messing around, but I figured I’d get myself one of my own. I chose this because I’m a Fender guy, I dig JMJ, it looks incredible, and I like short scale guitars. This thing is beautiful. Road worn finish is something else, I love it. Played good out of the box. Of course a little tweaking is always necessary, but pretty much good to go. This thing is just a blast to play! I’ve neglected my guitars because of this little monster and I’m loving it. My friends that play bass full time like it too. Highly recommend this bass, and American Musical is a great company to buy from. Fast shipping, well packaged, and easy payment plans. Go for it!

LOVE THIS BASS!
What is your opinion of this product?
I love this Fender JMJ Mustang bass! It plays and sounds GREAT! I've had it for 2 months now, and STILL I have not had to adjust the neck or string height! Straight out of the box from AMS, and it's been kicking it at my gigs since day one! All I have done to this bass, since I took it out of the box, is to change the factory flatwound strings for round wound strings, and it sounds just as good and growly and bassy as my '73 P-Bass I had been playing at my gigs! BUT...since I bought the JMJ, I have left my vintage and valuable '73 P-Bass at home, and the JMJ has been my go-to gig bass. I play the JMJ through my Ampeg 1-15" and 2-10" stack, and the JMJ gets the job done and it's fun as heck to play! This bass gets 10 out of 10 stars from me!!

Nice bass
What is your opinion of this product?
Very happy with this bass, feels and sounds great. I played Mustangs in the 70's and this does not disappoint. Pickups are nice, don't know whey they switched to the PJ configuration on the other models..The only negative thing I could say is that it was not set up at all when I received it. The intonation was WAY out and the strings were all buzzing as if there was no set up at all in the factory. I have grown pretty accustomed to instruments being very playable out of the box...I adjusted everything and it plays excellent now...fun bass

Worth The Wait
What is your opinion of this product?
The road worn is not over done. as to be expected all hardware is also road worn. Now for the feel, it is amazing the neck feels very comfortable and fast no dead notes. The body resonates very well even with the flatwound strings. Intonation was a bit off not a problem. The volume tapers off consistently and the tone works very well dark to deep. The pickups are the stars here very punchy and well defined. Observations: this mustang bass is a bit longer than a fender music master so be careful if you buy a case. It is a keeper.
