The main feature that separates the Mustang Bass from its Precision and Jazz Bass counterparts is its 30" scale length (distance between the bridge and nut). This short scale results in a lower string tension and makes the instrument easier to fret and control notes on. This is great for beginner bassists or guitarists who want a bass in their arsenal, but don't like the longer neck and tighter strings of a conventional 34" scale bass.

More experienced bassists should also consider a short scale bass not just for the difference in feel, but the contrast in tone too. With a shorter scale length and looser strings, this result is a more pronounced low end and reduced highs. It sounds weird, but a short-scale bass actually gives you a bassier sound!
