    I found this on local forum, it's too good to be true. I know the pickups not original, but how's the other thing? It's only 380 US$ when converted. If it's real thing, should I pull the trigger? Is it worthy? Usually it sold more than 1000 US$ here.[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I have no idea. The neck looks odd to me though. Almosted a roasted look, as opposed to and aged neck. I don't know anything about music Masters though. I'd probably still but it if it appealed to me though. Looks really cool!

    When you run the serial # through guitar dater .org what comes back? I can't read it or I'd run it myself.
    There's a red 1974 Musicmaster for sale on Reverb right now. Your body looks to be the right shape. Of course the finish has been stripped and body irreversibly altered by routing out for what appears to be a pair of Hofner style pickups. As is the bass has zero collector value except for perhaps the neck, so it's your call.

    Very odd as if it's been sanded; stained, and baked under the sun or hot lights in an auto shop to look older than it is. According to Reverb, Squier had a Musicmaster bass in 1997. This could very easily be one of those with counterfeit decal.

    I like it. I'd buy it myself for that price. I don't really care if it's "real" or not.

    I don't have the serial number, but every bass I input there not always recognized. I don't mind the value, but I do care if it's real or not, just for my own satisfactory lol.

    I tend to think it's a real Squier that has been modified, and given a fake Fender decal.
