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!
