Competition Red finish with Racing Stripe, Pearloid pickguard, December 1971 neck date, Large Rounded neck profile, and untouched solder joints. This bass has lots of honest play wear with lots of finish checking. Later wood handrest installed and one newer tuner screw. More pictures at www.nationwideguitars.com
This bass is not mint, but pretty clean. The neck is straight and the frets and fingerboard show little wear. There are some paint chips on the body edges and there’s checking. The pick guard is chipped and warped. The tone pot doesn’t do much because original capacitor is weak. I haven‘t changed the cap, so as not to alter the bass, but this is easily remedied. Some wear, but a nice bass. (VG+)
This 1965 Fender Mustang is finished in red - and may have been finished in red twice. It looks like a Dakota Red colour was applied over a Fiesta Red layer.

It has been professionally refretted and had a bone nut added,...
This Fender Mustang Bass was made in the USA in 1970. It is all original and plays and sounds fantastic. The purple pickguard appears to be original and I have seen these on a few competition mustangs and tele thinlines, but they are certainly rare. It comes with a non original case.
This one has plenty of nicks, dings, chips, and checking. It has been played. There are 2-3 small screw holes in the body, possibly from strap buttons, but the holes are smaller than normal strap button holes. The screws on the thumb rest are not original. The bass may have been re-fretted. If so, it’s a good job with correct size fret wire. One pot reads 137 271 074 and the other one can’t be...
A cool 70’s Mustang in a rare color for the era. There has been some flaking of the finish on the headstock front and back. There’s a pretty good sized chip on the bass side of the fingerboard at the 9th fret. The nut, strap buttons, pickguard and bridge have been changed.
THIS EARLY 1971 MUSTANG (w/ 24" scale) IN CANDY APPLE RED W/ COMPETITION STRIPES IS AN ALL ORIGINAL EXAMPLE. (possibly a new nut .... a few dings and some soulful weather checking is all that can be said) GREAT NECK WITH NO EXCUSES!! ORIGINAL HARD SHELL CASE!! (SEE PIX OF THE MATCHING BASS SAME DAY SAME GUY!!!)
