you got your american performer with classic mustang bass pickup, and jazz pickup 3 knobbies and some kind of bullshit telecaster football jack nonsense for 1200 dollars. keep in mind you are paying extra on this model for a bridge plate that looks like TOTAL. FUCKIN. ASS.



you got your VANTARA dime bag model for 1000 with only a mustang pickup, 2 knobbies, and the jack back where it fucking belongs.



you got your mustang PJ bass with no mustang bass pickups, but with Pbass and Jbass pickup combo for 500 bucks, the bass plate on this one isn't as fugly as the 1200 model but fuck sake its boring.



and finally you got your SQUIER CV mustang bass that is exactly the same as the Pantara model is 350 dollars. proper pickups, proper bassplate, so that sticker on the Pantara model costs you an extra 550 fucking dollars, and this is probably built in Japan instead of Mexico. which is probably a better thing. no one knows because its been delayed 18,000 fucking times already and could be coming from the god damn moon.





so we have a price range of 1,200-350 dollars for the same bass with different pickup options.



i didn't talk about the differences between pearl, white, or parchment pickguards because they should all immediately be thrown in the fucking trash and replaced with tort.

That mustang PJ/Pantera or whatever was just about the most underwhelming instrument I've laid hands on.

i like the mustang pj bass*. the squier bass* is cool, too, tho. i'd prolly be fine with a bronco bass* as i currently has no bass*.






*intentionally pronounced like the fish species of the same name

I still want that fucking Mikey Way bass and no one is selling them like a bunch of greedy dicks. It's just that good, no one wants to get rid of it.

like so many other limited things, I kinda scoffed a bit when it was out but the second they took it off the market I suddenly needed one.

I cancelled my preorder for the Squier surf green and bought a $75 Bronco Bass on Facebook marketplace. It's probably all I really need.
