What we have hear is a fine player and a good looker to boot – a 1978 Fender Musicmaster bass which was a ‘budget’ version of the Mustang basses of that year, with a natural finish, shortscale neck, and just one pickup. The neck is comfortable and in good adjustment, with clean frets up and down.

Somewhere down the line the nut was replaced with a serviceable brass one, and the bridge is not original to this instrument, but other than those features, the rest of the equipment seems to be true-to-vintage. There is a small hole in the lower horn where a lefty-conversion probably took place, and some buckle-rash on the back, but otherwise this beauty is in great shape.

Electronics are simple: Volume and Tone controls that adjust a six-pole piece pickup.

Includes a black gig bag.
