    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

    Squier VM Mustang specs:
    Body- Basswood
    Bridge- Strings-Thru-Body with 4 Individually Adjustable Saddles
    Number of Frets- 19
    Fret Size- Medium Jumbo
    Position Inlays- Black Dot
    Fretboard Radius- 9.5"
    Fretboard- Maple
    Neck Material- Maple
    Neck Finish- Natural Satin
    Nut Width- 1.5"
    Scale Length- 30"


    Following mods done:
    -Nordstrand NM4 pickup (customized pickup covers)
    -1/2" Hipshot Ultralite clover tuners (filled old pilot holes with Famowood Maple wood filler)
    -Fender "F" neckplate
    -MIJ Fender Mustang reissue bridge plate
    -CTS 250k pots
    -Switchcraft jack
    -Four coats of conductive shielding paint in cavities
    -Custom made highly figured Birdseye Maple pickguard (from West Virginia Wood Arts)
    -Custom made Birdseye Maple bell knobs (from THG Knobs)
    -New set of DR Sunbeam short scale strings 45-105's
    -The Bass clef logo on the headstock is just a vinyl sticker and can be easily removed if desired

    12/2: Here is a quick video I made today and uploaded. :D

    Looking to trade for a Spector Legend Fretless 4 string


    Update 12/13: SOLD! (price drop) I will sell and ship in the CONUS for $375 (paypal preferred)
    Will ship in a new short scale gig bag. I also have the original tuners, bridgeplate, neckplate & pickguard screws and I will ship these with the Bass.

    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 :(

    Thank you, I was super impressed when my Luthier finished and sent me the pickguard. It looks way better in person. :D
