Hate MCR. Love that bass.

Dunno if I'd choose it over a regular Mustang Bass though.

I thought it was going to have a regular mustang pickup, what is this thing? Also, I still hate the black headstock on that guitar, it looks wrong, and scumbag sparkle is still gross IMO.

Looks like an EMG 35 soapbar style to me. Which is cool. If it sucks it shouldn't be hard to slap a regular pickguard on it.

I like this bass guitar, a lot.

Anything has to be better than the stock MB pickup.

Those things are unreasonably mediocre, even on the Fenders.

I've been thinking of getting a SS bas for a while, this might be the one - depending on price.

Is 19 frets vs 20 (on the jag SS bass) that much of a difference?

Also as far as the pickup I'd put in an EMG soapbar sized P pickup if it didn't have the right sound.

"She's Lost Control" only goes to the 19th fret, so I don't really need the 20th fret. Others will chime in.
