The new Fender Mustang bass is described as follows:
The new Fender Mustang Bass is ideal for the student or small adult, inasmuch as it features a 30" string length and the smaller Mustang body. True bass tone is achieved through the use of its single split pickup positioned for maximum string response. Each pickup section may be adjusted for custom string balance. Tone and Volume controls are conveniently located and permit any desired response. The Mustang/Bass bridge utilizes individual bridges for each string that are each adjustable for length and height. In addition, each has its own string mute in order that the player may control the sustaining duration to suit his requirements. A finger rest is placed to give maximum support to the hand. The truss-rod reinforced neck is very slim for fast action and has 19 frets. It is available in red, white or blue finish and by special order, left-hand.
