Fender are set to release a new line of Vintage Modified basses, including this beautiful little tobacco burst number - the Vintage Modified Mustang. With a retail set at £347, it looks to be very affordable for the discerning bassist looking to reach (literally) into the short scale section of low-end goodness. The official press release from the guitar masters reads as follows:
"A truly classic Fender bass guitar model from the mid-1960s returns in the sleek, short-scale form of the Squier Vintage Modified Mustang Bass. The instrument honors its 1966 ancestor with a basswood body finished in Black or Three-color Sunburst, 19-fret maple neck and 30-inch scale perfect for players of all kinds who appreciate the comfort of a short-scale instrument. Other features include a Duncan Designed split single-coil pickup, three-ply pickguard, chrome tuners and distinctive Mustang Bass four-saddle bridge. Superior tone, smooth playability, great comfort and fantastic value."
