Hello everyone! While i've recently been mentioning how i haven't bought a new bass in over a year (which is my longest streak in about 15 years)... GAS has, yet again, reared it's head. I've owned plenty'a short scale over the years... but i recently have been bit by a want for a Fender Musicmaster. However, i seem to recall some (possibly false) information about how some years/colors denoted a lesser quality than others. Is this true? Also, what's a good price-point? Deals happen, sure... but even the e-bay rates have a huge gap... from $800-$1300... Finally... i AM fairly tempted to look into the new Fender Pawn Shop Mustang. Knowing that those are $800, and would come with a warranty, would that be a better buy? I love the mini-split P Mustangs, but it's not what i want right now... Thanks!
