    Do any of you think that a Classic Vibe Musicmaster bass is a good idea? Something to bridge the price gap between the Bronco and the Mustang. They used to have a Vista series (or something like that) Musicmaster that I heard were quality but they are hard to come by. Good idea or not?

    Eh... why? Given the bronco is pretty low-end, but the Mustang's not exactly expensive. For a bass with a pretty limited appeal (one pickup, short-scale) I can't imagine it being worth Fender's time.

    $840(mustang price) is expensive for me but the price of a clasic Vibe is about right. The Bronco seems a little too low quality though. If I'm the only one that thinks this then you are probably correct that the market isn't there for such a product. Thanks for the "Eh... why?" attitude. People on here are so open minded and accepting. I love it.

  4. Personally, I'd love it! I have a Bronco and I love shorties, and this seems like a great idea... if they do it they should finish it in nitro paisly!
    OH YEAH!
    Peace

    The Bronco and the Musicmaster are the same bass. Fender just changed the name in '79 for some crazy reason. The only things a Mustang has that are different than a Musicmaster/Bronco are hum-cancelling pickups, a better bridge, and 2 piece pickguard/control plate. I can't imagine Fender seeing a need to make an inbetween model.

    I think that would be awesome but I cant see Fender doing it , i'd buy one though
     
  7. I don't think we'll ever see one, but personally, I'd be very tempted to buy a Vintage Vibe Mustang if there was such a thing (and if it was as good as the other Vintage Vibe-instruments). A Musicmaster could have been interesting too, but that seems even more unlikely, as that's essentially what a Bronco is.

    There was a model that sort of fit between the Musicmaster and Mustang; the Bullet bass. Most og the Bullets I've see were long scale, but I know they made a short scale version. Same pickups as a Mustang, single ply pickguard, standard 4 saddle bridge.
