    The bass was routed to fit full size P pickups, a common mod on mustangs. The pickups are EMG's and a active EMG pre-amp. Thats all I know I dont know the specifics of the Pre-AMP or Model of the pickups but I can get this if you would like.

    The body is pretty clean. No huge dents just some minor ones, the chrome needs a clean up but is not pitted. Its actually a really nice body. It also has dunlops pins on it but i dont have the buttons. It has a box shaped route for 9 volt batteries and also the pickup routes widened but it was done well, of course it cant be seen with a guard on.

    The tuners are really patina looking,I cleaned them and they look way better but I didnt exactly try to make them look perfect, I am sure they can clean up better.

    All associated screws are included, I didnt photograph them but 4 neckplate screws are included as well as the string tree screw and the 16 screws to hold the tuners on.

    My plans were to get a bronco neck, refinish it and enlarge the tuner holes to fit these tuners. Bronco necks are nice but the rest of the bass is lacking. I also was considering a squier mustang neck or a jaguar neck which would make this a mustang with a slim neck which is near impossible to find add in the full size EMG's and you have a very mean but little bass.

    I can really part it out in these ways.

    1.) The loaded body $275.

    2.) The loaded body minus the pre-amp/pickups-$220.

    3.)[DEL] The tuners, bushings, screws and string tree $35[/DEL] SOLD

    4.) Neckplate and string tree are available, the plate with the screws $10 shipped, the string tree which is smaller then the average fender tree, $6.

    Is the bridge on this positioned for a standard 34" scale or for a short scale?

    Do you still have the neck and was it a 19 fret or 20 fret neck? Also, did the EMG pickup require routing to install, or is the body still in original condition under the pickguard?
