    I finally got the chance to take afew pics of this bass and am super happy with it. Has afew electrical issues but that will be taken care of next week. I'll have my tech guy re-ground it and shield the p/u cavity, as well as look at modding the pickup to increase the treble response (seems like a pretty universal mod for these basses).

    Without further ado..




    Thanks for looking ladies and gents!

    That one has been modded. It looks like a Jazz pickup there, no? These had a gtr pickup under a black "no holes" cover. My first bass was one of these. Mine had the older, smaller tuners. Nice bass!

    See, thats what im wondering about. At one point of its life it was red (and i believe they only made them in red, white and black for awhile).

    The pickup itself is a fender lace sensor (or so it says at the top left corner of it). Its a jazz pickup aswell. I'll pull the cover off and take a pic though.

    I bought a Musicmaster brand new in 74-75 and it was only available in those three colors, I had a black on. Mine came with 6 pole pieces in the pickup, weird for a four string bass. I think they were the same pickups that were in my Bronco??? Nice to see one of these old beasts.
