Won't be too extensive here. The Fender Mustang was my first bass and the short scale really helped me learn my way around the fretboard quite quickly. My favourite aspect of this bass was the ability to get a really round tone, similar to a double bass. I've been unable to reproduce this on anything else I've used so far.
Also as a short individual, this bass matched my image quite nicely. :D
