FT: Custom Squier VM Mustang

Discussion in 'For Sale: Bass Guitars' started by TK4261, Nov 23, 2012.


  1. SOLD! $375 Shipped in the US.

    I'm putting my Custom Squier Vintage Modified Mustang Bass up for trade/sale, reluctantly...I bought this Squier VM Mustang brand new last year and it has been a labor of love modding it and is by far one of my favorite basses that I have owned. But I am going back to 34" scale Basses. The Nordstrand NM4 pickup sounds great in this Bass. It is in mint condition, no dings, scrapes or scratches. Extremely fun to play this Bass. I recently just finished my last mod on it a few weeks ago (Hipshot Ultralites). I have $700 into this Bass. I'm sure this Bass will make a short scale player very happy :D

    Body- Basswood
    Bridge- Strings-Thru-Body with 4 Individually Adjustable Saddles
    Number of Frets- 19
    Fret Size- Medium Jumbo

    Fretboard Radius- 9.5"
    Fretboard- Maple

    Wicked cool. Would you take cash for it? How much?
     
  7. Thanks :)
    I really would rather trade for a SpectorCore fretless right now.
    I will leave the trade post up for a little while to see if someone has a SpectorCore to trade and then I will think about selling. Plus I'm really not sure what price I would sell it for being how unique this Bass is now. I really do like this Bass and is going to be hard to part with it :(

    Whoa. That is a really cool looking Mustang! I love the mods you did. That wood pick guard is stunning!
     
  19. Thank you, I was super impressed when my Luthier finished and sent me the pickguard. It looks way better in person. :D
     
  20. Since I'm having trouble trying to find a used SpectorCore fretless for trade, I added a for sale price on updated first post ;)
