Up for sale, a 1978 Fender Mustang Bass in 100% original condition and in perfect working order with a custom color Blonde finish, uncommon maple fretboard, and brand new Fender G&G black tolex hardshell case. As Fender's premier short-scale bass, the Mustang Bass has gained increased notoriety in recent years for its tonal versatility, easy playability, and impressive thump when required. Strung with 45-100 roundwound strings, this Mustang Bass delivers plenty of growl and roundness, with classic low end punch and clarity in the treble frequencies. Weighing 9lbs 2oz, this bass delivers the complex midrange and power of the solid ash body too. Professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar, we've dialed in this Mustang Bass for optimal action and intonation. The maple neck has a full C profile carve with lots of shoulder and roundness, and moderate increase in profile depth as you travel up the 30 scale, measuring. 898" deep at the 1st fret and graduating to 1.010" at the 12th fret. On the gloss-finished maple fretboard, the original frets are intact with their full factory height and virtually no wear. The neck is straight, and the bass plays cleanly in all registers with no buzzing or dead spots.

The nut measures 1 5/8 in width, and the headstock retains the original Fender-stamped tuners along with a clean and stock logo on the headstock face. The underside of the original pickguard has its original small serial number sticker from'78 which matches the serial on the headstock.

The chrome is particularly clean on the original control plate and bridge. The gloss Blonde finish is 100% original with no touchups or overspray, and this finish is notably more transparent than many'70s Fender Blondes, allowing the wide grain of the ash body to be plainly visible. Cosmetically, this bass shows some minor nicks and scuffs around the contoured body edges, with a couple spots exhibiting less aging of the clear coat, specifically on the lower bout edge and one quarter-sized spot on the bass side body horn. There is light scuffing on the back and one small spot of buckle rash through the finish, and there are also a couple faint isolated areas on the lower bout on the instruments face and on the back where the original orange case lining has left a faint similarly tinted spot on the Blonde gloss. The neck profile is extremely smooth with a clean gloss finish and only a couple tiny nicks.

This rare custom color example is a perfect blend of features both tonal and functional, and the ash body and maple fretboard pairing deliver a sonic range both more robust and articulate than many Mustang Basses. A brand new black tolex Fender-branded G&G hardshell case is included. Check out our shop "Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar, " and please let us know if we can answer any questions!
