Oh yeah, the Mustang is a '67.

    So my partner's girlfriend (the one with the '73 P), has a '67 Mustang Bass, reportedly in excellent shape. This is the second year they made them, I've been told. So what's this one worth, all you afficionados?
     
  2. Id say 5 bills at MOST, but then again Im not too good at that sort of thing. Id love to get my hands on that bass.

    Yeah, I don't figure it's worth a heck of a lot, but it'd be funky to have it laying around.

    I bought a Fender Mustang in the 70s that was already quite old - showing wear - rusty in places! It was almost the worst bass I have ever played - no tonal variation, hard to intonate above the 12th fret and lacking in bass response. They were awful!

    But they did have good re-sale value - traded mine in for a Japanese Westone and got a good price in the 80s - about £300 which was a lot then!
