    For sale (no trades on this one): A "Crafted in Japan" Fender Mustang Bass, which I believe dates to around 2006 or 2007. I'm the second owner, and the only issue with this bass is that the first owner put stickers and paint on the pickguard. He attempted to remove them, which left the guard pretty scratched. It also still has some white paint on it, partially scratched off. (If it bothers you, new ones can be purchased for 25 to 45 dollars, according to a quick search.) Otherwise it's great: sounds good, plays good, no other issues at all.

    Summary:

    The bad: pickguard is ugly.
    The good: everything else.

    No case, but I'll pack it well. $450 shipped. Please ask any other questions. Thanks!

    Good price. I sold one of these recently for $100 more than that.

    Yeah, before I listed this I checked, and it seems like all the ones on here recently were around 550. I think I've got this priced so someone could try out the short scale thing, but still make their money back if they wanted to down the road.

    I'd say your price is about right for someone who wants to try a *quality* shortscale with minimal $$ risk. :) (I say that as someone who just sold a Mustang for a little more but no cosmetic issues with it.) Mustangs sound awesome.

    Ooooooo. Been looking at Mustangs for a while, unfortunately neer got to actually play one as yet.

    So, two questions:

    1) What does it sound like/feel like/play like (compared to some basses I'd probably hae played) and,

    2) Would you ship to Australia? If yes, aproximate price to east coast (brisbane region)?

    Thanks heaps.

    Sorry mate, I'm going to try to keep this in the states for now, as I'd rather not go through the hassle of international shipping. Not yet at least.

    As for the other question, to me these have a very P-bass like tone. The low E is a little different sounding to my ears, due to 30" scale. But it sounds (and the neck feels) like a vintage Fender for the most part.
