Ice dark cut of tight-grained rosewood with some dynamic grain patters in the higher registers and original slender fretwire. The frets are in great shape, retaining their full factory height and showing only light wear beneath the A and D strings on frets 1-5. The truss rod is responsive with the truss rod nut still flush with the neck heel. The neck is straight, and this bass plays cleanly in all positions.The nut measures 1 916 in width, and on the headstock the bass features a matched set of original Fender-stamped tuners along with a vintage spec gold Mustang Bass logo atop the matching blue peghead. The original green ink stamp on the neck heel is also intact yet faint. The original F neck plate and control plate are intact, complete with original knobs, while the bridge is a modern Fender replacement with the correct vintage footprint. The pickguard is unique and a vintage style relic of a style seen on Fenders of this era with a pearloid back, three-ply construction, and lightly aged parchment top ply.
The gloss Gulf Colors nitro lacquer finish is a pitch perfect rendition of this classic color combo, and Riggio's execution is second to none. Riggio's relic treatment includes prominent tight horizontal lacquer checking across the body, while additional simulated wear is very restrained with only a few nicks and marks on the contoured body.The neck profile is flawless. A brand new Fender black tolex G&G hardshell case is included. Check out our shop "Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar, " and please let us know if we can answer any questions!
