    Selling my MIJ Fender Mustang bass in beautiful Lake Placid Blue.

    I bought this bass used on eBay from a seller in Japan a few months ago. I keep trying to talk myself into it, but I just cannot get used to the shorter scale. It's too bad because I love looking at it. Having said that...

    This color is extremely rare and you will be hard pressed to find another Mustang like this. Serial number says it was made at the Fuji-gen Plant for Fender Japan in 2004/2005. Fender Japan model number is MB98-70SD. Serial number is R002966.

    It has a few small battle scars on the back which I tried to capture in the photos, other than that it's in great shape. Normal wear, nothing major. A small chip on the back near the center, a ding next to the neck plate, and a scratch on the bottom horn. The front is near flawless.

    Neck is nice and straight. I buffed the frets since taking these photos so they're super shiny now. The original thumb rest was not included when I bought it, but a new one is less than $10.

    100% stock other than the felt washers I added where the strap pins meet the body. Also comes with a black Fender Mustang bass gig bag and brand new unopened set of GHS Boomers medium scale strings (45-105).

    This thing sounds absolutely fantastic. Probably sits better in the mix than either of my p basses, but again the short scale isn't for me.

    Weight: ~7.5lbs. I don't have a scale to measure it exactly.
    Scale length: 30"
    Width at nut: 1.50"

    $600 shipped anywhere in the United States or Canada. Not interested in any trades right now. PM with questions.

    Lots of pics here: http://imgur.com/a/UVoX9

    I snagged one of your pics when you first posted about this bass and have been using it for my desktop image on my work computer. I'm a sucker for blue basses and this is a beauty! GLWS.
