$1,649.99

+ shipping

Up for sale, 2004 Fender Competition Mustang Bass ‘69 vintage reissue model MB-SD/CO in excellent, 100% original condition and in perfect working order. Produced exclusively for the Japanese domestic market, this “Crafted in Japan” Mustang is a faithful and discontinued reissue of the classic short scale Fender model, with a factory-installed split-coil USA-made Seymour Duncan pickup. Finished in Ocean Turquoise Metallic and accented by a Competition racing stripe and white pearloid pickguard, this is easily one of the most eye-catching Mustang Basses ever offered by Fender.

There's a certain pluck and punch unique to this bass that's particularly appealing and sits well in a mix, with a thump that fills out the low end nicely while being a bit more focused than a Precision Bass. Slightly more aggressive and midrange forward than a P Bass too, this Mustang Bass is strung with roundwound 45-100 strings, delivering an articulate top end and a touch of growl. Weighing 7lbs 12oz, this bass has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with easy-playing action and accurate intonation.
