The Mustang bass is hotter than ever, finally hitting its stride in the mainstream.  There is nowhere else to get this sound!

This particular bass is in excellent condition with the only apparent changes being strap button on the lower bout appearing newer than the other, and the missing felt mute pads (which are always missing!).

The frets are in excellent condition with little wear.  We were able to get a great setup on the bass and there is room for future adjustment in the truss rod.

Included is a non original hardshell case.

The Mustang Bass is known for its shorter scale length compared to traditional bass guitars. It typically has a scale length of 30 inches (compared to the standard 34 inches), which means the strings are shorter and looser. This shorter scale length contributes to a more comfortable playing experience, especially for players with smaller hands or those who prefer a shorter reach.

The compact size and lighter weight of the Mustang Bass make it a comfortable instrument to play, especially for extended periods. The shorter scale length and offset body design contribute to a balanced feel and ease of maneuverability.
