I recently purchased a 1977 Fender Musicmaster bass. It's how you say,well played. It looks like it's been dropped a time or two,few dents here and there,various scuffs and scratches. Neck is near mint though,just the body is tore down. I really like the bass. I plan on it being a keeper but I'm debating if I should refinish it or keep it as is. The battle scars are cool but at the same time I feel the urge to make it purdy again,maybe redo it some unusual color.
