Not wishing to tread on the toes of the General
Guitarthread we know and love, but here’s a little space for a bass that could’ve been treated more lovingly. I’ve already posted my Mustang bass elsewhere; hacked to pieces by a moron. Here’s another that’s been to the school of hard-knocks:
All credit to the seller for the honesty of the descn and for not taking the tempting route of dissembling it for parts. Could be a lovely ’66 Mustang with those oval tuners, but here’s the horrid bit:
Never mind the body refinish, the pickup hack and replacement, the naff mother of toilet seat pickguard, the black spray up the back of the neck. Nope, some idiot put a bit of masking tape around the dots and sprayed the fretboard black.
If ever a bass should be sold off for its hardware (’66 oval tuners, bridge with string dampers, serialed “F” neckplate vol+tone pots date coded etc). This is a bass that is worth less than the sum of its parts 😥
