This was copied from a Craigslist add: 1978 fender musicmaster bass. great shape. great tone. plays great. email your number and any possible trades... a steal at this price, no low ballers. $499 Was wondering what the reputation of these basses is? The guy mentions that he might accept trades. I've been thinking of selling my Shecter 5'er, only because I really don't like the string spacing after all this time of owning it.. I wonder at the thought of offering it as a trade.. So I'm seeking opinions.. The one on the right is my Schecter that I'm referring to.. Which one would be the better bass, the Shecter Studio 5, or the 78 Musicmaster? Why, in your opinion? I haven't played a Musicmaster before so I don't know how they feel or sound.. Any help is appreciated!
