$325 US at Guitar Center, Albany NY USA,
without bag, strap, or etc. I was just
looking for some cables but I got this
instead. They didn't have the cables.
It's a 30" Fender base with the easy to
play friendly feeling fender neck, not
too slim not too thick. These are also
very easy to hot rod, and their value
as "vintage Fender" is so minimal that
hotrodding is fiscally painless.
I enjoy its simplicity, it emanates an
Adirondack Strings, Albany NY, $280 with
molded hard case. I had been checking out a few other Musicmasters, looking for a
good shortscale bass but others were all
$375 to $475, mediocre condition, no case.
This one is in great shape, but cheaper
because of non-Fender components. One of
those components is a BadAss II, which I
would have surely installed anyway, so it
saved me an extra $60. The other is a
[dimarzio?] Jazz PU which I probably would not have added due to the extra expense of
routing the body to fit it
Made in the USA in 1971, bridge and hardware "roots" Fender short scale neck, stratocaster type microphone (yes, really!), Volume and tone.
The neck is perfect, right, fine, very enjoyable to play. It is a lightweight and well balanced as well. The sound is very similar to a Precision Bass good roots.
I mounted flat nets and I use a pop-rock project for which she seems to have been invented. As stated above, we get a sound close to a PB but with the short scale neck and lightweight which makes it easier to play than its big sister. I play plugged into a combo markbass cmd121, or, and there is a pure happiness in an amplifier 320 and its Acoustic Acoustic baffle 408. For lovers of vintage sounds, this coupling and enjoyable!
I've had almost a year, I like the handle, ergonomics and sound. I paid a bit expensive (1000EUR) but it is a model of 1971, completely original, in very good condition with an ultra limited color: blue sequin. Only 1000 copies were produced in summers that color!
