Take it from the top

The Fender Musicmaster Bass was introduced in 1971 to serve as a stripped down, entry level version of the Mustang bass, much like the 6 string Musicmaster guitar had been in the 1960's. This 1971 Fender Musicmaster Bass is a fantastic and unique example of the model from the first production year. With an Alder body and Maple neck with Rosewood fingerboard, the Musicmaster Bass features a single coil pickup as opposed to the split coil found on the Mustang bass, along with a shorter 30" scale length. These basses are renowned for their punchy, rounded sound and are often praised for the way they cut through the mix in a recording setting.

The beautiful Blue finish is the real draw on this particular instrument. Musicmaster bass guitars were original offered in flat Blue, White & Red finishes. The electronics and other hardware are original, including the pearl pick guard that is only found on first year Musicmaster Bass examples.
