Here's one you don't see everyday (or any day ever): 1975 Fender Mustang Bass, that was modded into an 8-String Octave bass!! The mod was done by Darrell Gilbert of Gilbert Guitars NYC, who was also the #1 guy at Matt Umanov Guitars in NYC for many you know the work is legit. A neck pickup was added, and the bass is wired for stereo or mono, with 2 separate output jacks: The original output on the face plate, and another on the side for stereo. The 2 knobs are volume for each pickup. There is no tone control knob, but 2 toggle switches that have been tastefully added. These switches have a treble on/off switch for each pickup. And then the octave string tuning gears are installed on the back of headstock. Make sense? The bass plays fantastic as well! The action is low down the fingerboard. Super fun and inspiring bass!! Case included...
