I play mostly guitar, but enjoy playing bass and jam on at least a monthly basis with folks where I'm switching between six and four strings. For years I had a cheapo Hohner P/J. A couple of years ago I sold it and bought a MIM Mustang P/J (which I should not have sold). I did sell it, in the interest of chasing the feel and sound of my brother's CIJ Mustang bass that he refinished, tummycut and (Curtis) Novak'd. I bought a Fender JMJ-Sig Mustang, which was GREAT except the neck was too thick for me to comfortably play. Sent it back within the 30-day (retail) window. SO -- I'm on the hunt. I think I want to stay short-scale. I'm not a huge dude, and I don't play bass professionally -- so tone-wise, 'good enough' is good enough. I'd love to find a mustang bass of some sort. People don't seem to be selling their MIJ/CIJ fenders (at least on Reverb and CL), and when they do they really want a pretty penny for them. Suggestions..? Thanks.
