The maple neck has a slender C-shaped profile carve with round, inviting shoulders and lightly rolled fretboard edges, gently growing in overall heft as you travel up the fretboard, measuring. 805 at the 1st fret and. The Brazilian rosewood fretboard has been professionally refretted with slender vintage-spec fretwire that shows zero wear with perfectly rounded crowns.
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 just shy of 1 5/8" in width, and on the headstock the bass features a matched set of original Fender-stamped "lollipop tuners along with the original Mustang Bass decal. The stamp on the neck heel is present and bold, dating to September of'66. The original chrome hardware has ample shine, and the bridge includes the original springy metal "fingers" for adding mute foam.
The gloss Daphne Blue nitro lacquer finish on the slab body is a pitch perfect rendition of this classic Fender custom color, and Riggio's execution is second to none, with vintage-correct aging and just a hint of greening in the clear coat. Riggio's relic treatment includes prominent tight horizontal lacquer checking across the body, and simulated nicks and marks exposing the white primer coat along the edges of the slab body. The neck profile retains its original nitro lacquer gloss, exhibiting prominent palm wear down to the bare maple along the profile shoulders with various additional shallow marks from honest use that arent distracting to the palm while fretting.
The original hardshell case is included with a gray textured exterior, black faux alligator ends, original latches, and stock handle.
