Though the ’72s neck pickup looks like
the ones in the Mustang Special, the Enforcer
Wide Range humbucker here sounds more
like a PAF, with more bite than delivered
by the Mustang’s pickup. The ’72’s bridge
pickup, however, responds much like the one
in the Mustang, albeit with a little more airiness
courtesy of the ’72’s semi-hollow body.
A vintage P-Bass-style switch plate harbors
just a Master Volume and a Blend control
that sweeps from full bridge to full neck.
If the sonic changes are not as obvious as I
would have liked, there are still a couple of
cool sounds to be had between the extremes.
In both clean and dirty applications, the ’72
offered up a vibe reminiscent of a Gibson
ES-335, with a slight Fender undertone.
Finely finished frets and a solid setup
made this Pawnshop model a pleasure to
play. If a humbucker-equipped semi-hollow
with a unique look is on your list,
you should definitely give the ’72 a try.
