    All original 1971 Mustang Bass, Candy Apple Red w/Racing Stripes! EXC -/VG + condition with period correct hard shell case and groovy instruction manual you are sure to need.

    As you can see the color on this is AWESOME! It plays like a dream. You can see the truss rod adjustment nut has hardly been touched. There are some dings but not where it counts. This is a 42 year old bass in great condition.

    If you are looking for a vintage short scale bass the chix will dig (see cover of manual), this is your bass.

    $1550 shipped lower 48.

    I can picture the product development meeting 50 years or so ago (didn't the competition stripes start mid 60s?) and some guy says "Hey let's put a RACING STRIPE on the Mustangs like the car. The kids will dig it." And everybody said "YEAH!!!" and 40 years later they look even cooler now.

    Then after the meeting they drove through citrus orchards to get to the beach to go surfing.
  11. let's put a stripe on there for the kids since they won't be invited on the scenic CITRUS ORCHARD drive.
