Fender 2018 American Performer Mustang Bass Aubergine 30" Short Scale Clean! 91950
This is a 2018 Fender American Performer Mustang Bass in Aubergine finish. It has a 30" short scale neck and is in excellent playing and cosmetic condition. Features include a 9.5" radius, C-shape neck with rosewood fretboard. Electronics are Yosemite pickups and a Greasebucket tone circuit.
The bass is great condition. The only imperfection I found was a tiny crack in the edge of the rosewood fretboard up at the top of the neck (see pics). Otherwise looks new. Frets are in great condition. Will come set up and ready to play. No case. Thanks for looking!
NOTE: Do you think some mega-seller is going to even look over an instrument, let alone do a full setup like I do? I personally clean, set up, and inspect every instrument (see details below). I spend extensive time to make sure your instrument gets to you in great playing condition. In the box I include a setup checklist explaining everything I did, including relief and string height measurements. Thanks!
What You Get
-- Full setup, cleaning, and new strings.
-- FREE USA shipping.
-- 30-day return policy.
-- Ship within 1 business day--pro packing.
All setups are done by our in-house luthier. Setup includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. We spray out any pots that are noisy, turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. Basses get the same treatment minus the string change. Thanks!
I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.

American-made quality at an unbeatable price
Fender's American Performer Series exists to do one thing: give you genuine US-made quality at an unbeatable price. The American Performer Mustang Bass gives you a great selection of pro features, including a supremely playable maple neck and rosewood fingerboard, jumbo frets, Yosemite pickups, and Fender's innovative Greasebucket tone control. All in all, it's quite a potent music-delivery system. And it's made right here in the USA, in Fender's state-of-the-art Corona, California factory.
Versatile split and J-style Yosemite pickups
Modern or vintage, rounds or flats, players of all stripes will be pleased with what this Mustang Bass is packing by way of its increased-output Yosemite Alnico V passive pickups. In neck position is the classic split single-coil, for tubbier, thumpier walking lines and rubber band soul riffs. In bridge position, you'll find an additional Jazz Bass pickup with flat-staggered pole pieces for balance, clarity, and punch. These, paired with independent volume controls for each pickup and a master tone control, equip the American Performer Mustang Bass from Sweetwater for just about any style of music you can throw at it.
Greasebucket tone circuit
Fender has fitted their American Performer Mustang Bass with their Greasebucket tone control, which rolls off highs without adding bass or affecting your volume. This is seriously cool, because it gives you explicit control over your tone onstage without your having to compensate for volume loss — making the American Performer Mustang Bass a serious tone machine.
