Here's a 1973 Fender Mustang Bass in Competition Blue finish. This is a super vibey players bass! 17JAN73 neck date, with original '73 pots. Finish is all original as well. The pickups and pickguard are not original, and there's a route in the body from a previous humbucker size pickup. The pickups appear to be newer Fender Mustang Bass pickups. There's also fracture crack in the body that basically runs on both sides, aligned with the low E string. That is sealed and completely structurally sound. The bass plays fantastic, with smooth playing action. This one happens have a beautiful dark Rosewood fingerboard as well. Frets have plenty of life. Killer Killer bass. HSC included…
