FS/FT: 1978 Fender Mustang - PRICE DROP £1050 **ON HOLD**
£1200
Newcastle upon Tyne

Recommended Posts

**price drop - £150 off** - BARGAIN FOR A SWEET VINTAGE INSTRUMENT :)
 

For sale / for trade is my black 1978 Mustang bass. Bought it for a project that folded soon after and it's not been used since. It has a sweet action, sounds great with flats and looks the business (all wear original). 

Weight is 4kg. 

Tried to take as many pics as I could but if you want any more give me a shout.

Looking for a 5 string USA Precision bass (plus a bit of cash) or perhaps something similar - the main criteria is the string spacing and needs to be passive.

Ideally meet up but shipping can be arranged.

Great looking Mustang.  Do you know if it's been refretted?

I don't believe so but as I've not has it from new I couldn't tell you 100%. Doesn't look like it to my eye.

      Possible trades 4 string- MM Fender Overwater Lakland
      Cheers.
      Pictures and video added
      This is a true beauty I’ve decided should be with someone else who will treasure it and play it more then I and I.
      I had one of these the first time around - then Ricks, Celinder and CS basses but always hankered back to a real 60s Jazz - then this very special laid-back looking instrument came up.
      Alder body with ebony fretboard and beautiful maple binding by master luthier Jimmy Moon. 'Very comfortable A' profile slim neck - slimmer than '64 CSs I've owned.
      The neck is in lovely condition, has a subtle flaming and like the rest of the bass has acquired the sweetest sound, character and the authentic patina and feel only 50 years can give.
      Sounds just as you would expect - an authoritative true vintage tone with a wide palette and a comfortable 9lb.
      Originally sunburst - pictured, the previous owner who bought the bass new. It has all original pick ups and electronics.  
      He took it for a set up to a music dealer where some oik damaged the truss rod which is when Mr Moon was commissioned to make the bass unique.
      The ebony fingerboard is gorgeous and as you can see is set off by the understated mother of pearl dots.
      That’s it.
      Stay safe, stay healthy and stay in tune.
      Based near Manchester, could meet within reason, comes with substantial Fender case.
      PS - I am a professional photographer - the buyer will receive a Marcus Miller poster with my compliments. https://www.william-ellis.com/

      Hi there,
      I put on sale this active Fender Deluxe Jazz Bass 2009 from the American Deluxe series (2004-2009). The price is 1.250£.
      It is located in A Coruña (Spain)
      The Fender specifications are as follows: 
      Metallic silver headstock logo 
      Modern C-shaped, graphite reinforced neck.
      Contoured heel for more fret access 5 bolt neckplate with Corona California Fender logo stamped.
      Abalone dot fret markers. 
      Rosewood rolled edge fretboard. 
      Montego Black paint. 
      Gold pickguard 
      Through body or topload bridge. 
      Hipshot USA made Deluxe Lite-Bass tuning machines. 
      3 Band Active EQ with 18 volt power supply.
      Samarium ™ Cobalt Noiseless Jazz Bass pickups.
      Schaller Style Strap Lock Buttons.
      Alder body and maple neck, with a 9.5 "radius rosewood fingerboard. The bass is light and really well balanced (3.8kg or less, approx.) 
      Abalone inlays are just amazing. 
      The pickups are Fender SCN (Samarium Cobalt Noiseless), with a classic sound without any noise. 3-band EQ and very quiet, with a punchy output. 
      This pre-2010 Deluxe series has nothing to do with the later one. Only good things are said about its pickups, how balanced and comfortable it is. Depending on the EQ you use, you can have from the most classic and vintage sound to that powerful Marcus Miller sound, while maintaining that quality and sound so familiar from Fender. 
      The frets have just been luthier to be leveled although the bass has little use, as I have other Passives and I hardly play it. It has not passed through other hands. In fact, he hasn't been out of the house more than a couple of times. It is the real reason why I decided to put it up for sale, even if it costs me to part with it. For that reason it's only for sale, but I'm looking for an Aguilar Tone Hammer 350 or 500. So maybe a trade for Aguilar + money would be possible. 
      Apart from that I have enough equipment.
      As you can see in the images it is very well cared for and treated. The neck behaves perfectly and has a very comfortable action. It's a super versatile bass. Includes its Fender case. The only visible imperfect is a scratch on the pickguard (where you have access to the truss screw) that a luthier made when adjusting the neck and he seemed to find it too much work to unscrew the pickguard. The rest, natural marks of use. 
      We will discuss and figure out the best way for shipping. No problem, indeed!!
      Any questions or doubts do not hesitate to ask me. 
      Thanks for your time and interest.

      Due to my strict “Always two there are, a master and an apprentice”* policy, I am selling my 2016 American Standard Jazz Bass. This will then make me a fully-fledged member of the 5-string ‘Dark Side’.
      This bass is a creamy looking Olympic white, with a tort pickguard and rosewood neck. Its retro look is enhanced by a ‘ding’ (pictured) which I understand arose from an argument with a cymbal in an earlier life. It was sanded smooth and does not affect playability.
       It is a great bass, with a great tone and low action. It comes with a Fender hard case.
      I am looking for £650. Socially-distanced collection preferred, or buyer to arrange shipping. However, I would be happy to meet up within a reasonable distance (I am based in North Essex).
      Not looking for trades. Sorry!

      Hi all,
      New member here!  Just looking for some advice. I have been playing for around 6 months.  Took up bass as apparently playing the drums in a terraced house annoys the neighbours and I needed to get my music fix!!! 
      So have been dabbling with pedals in the last few months and currently have;
      Xvive bass squeezer
      Arion MEQ-2
      Behringer bass overdrive
      But, being a drummer and a simple soul, I have been looking to simplify things even further. 
      So after a bit of research and youtube vids. This is the current short list of 4 possibles. 
      Fender Downtown Express               
      EHX Battalion               
      Valeton Dapper Bass
      SONICAKE Bass Preamp DI Box
      So indeed of advice and personal experiences of the 4 pedals above.
      I play most music, rock, metal, funk, pop, Motown, soul, blues.  I have a very eclectic taste. 
      I know I'm asking alot from one pedal. But for the sound I like. I dont need lots of heavy effects. 
      Compression, overdrive and an eq are my go to.  
      So what are your thoughts? 
      Lloyd
