Vintage 1973 Fender Musicmaster Bass Olympic White

Up for sale, here’s an awesome 1973 Fender Musicmaster Bass in a stunning, beautiful and original (yellowed) Olympic White finish.

7.4 Lbs. Yes, lightweight as it should be.

Check the Video where you can hear the bass in action. (Video will be uploaded soon). I can send photos upon request if you want or need more details, just send me a message.

This is a great example of an early ’70s Musicmaster, pretty much all original with the exception of the pickup (a 4-pole piece custom made by The Pickup Wizard, which is a huge upgrade from the 6-pole Stratocaster stock pickup, that is included with the sale), strap buttons and thumbrest that is a reproduction. Other than that everything else seems to be all original.

Beautiful Olympic White body with 3-ply white pickguard. Neck stamp shows clearly ’73, pots are dated 1973 as well. The neck is perfectly straight, typical Maple with rosewood fretboard and pearled dots, super smooth with a nice patina. As usual, some minimal wear through the years. Truss rod works perfectly smooth as it should. Frets are original and I think they still have plenty of life, no fret issues whatsoever. it really plays like a dream with lots of mojo.

The 30″ scale brings some magic, same as his brother: the Mustang Bass, Beside the fact it was intended to be a “student” type of instrument, over the years it became a secret weapon for many session musicians because of a unique sound. Think of a P-Bass that is in between a Jazz Bass and a Precision Bass, right in the middle, that sits through the mixes in a VERY unique way.

The instrument is in Very good condition, with some moderate wear from the almost 5 decades of usage, there are some small scratches and little dents over the body and the pickguard has a small crack near the input jack, however all these does not affect the playability at all, the instrument is in 100% fully functional condition and in great shape overall. The bass comes with a Fender gig bag (the hard case not he photos is JUST for displaying purposes).

It will be professionally packed, insured and shipped out to Continental US only. Local Pickup in LA is also welcome at no cost.
