Fender is soon releasing a japanese reissue of the wonderful short scale Mustang Bass.

It's a very easy to play and excellent sounding bass. I own a reissue myself, and they are just as good - or even better - than an old one. The new ones is made from alder while vintage Mustang Basses is made from the not-as-good sounding wood Poplar.

The reissue Mustang Bass has been available in Japan for many years made from left over US metal parts and with Duncan designed pick-ups.

Buy it from this japanese web-shop and get the choice of a great Ocean Turquise Metallic finish with 'competition stripe', which is not getting released outside Japan.

The price is fair coampared to the inflated vintage prices.
