Go on then...what is this? Well it's funny you should ask that! Well way back in the mists of time this started its life as a Squier classic vibe Mustang bass, but then the metamorphosis started to take place, in the darkest, most secret lab under the Gobi dessert a team of crack guitar scientists experimented with some genetic modifications, here are the top secret specifications.....but don't tell anyone!
- Nordstrand NM4 Pickup £85
- Hipshot Lollipop tuners £150
- Neck and body fully stripped
- Luminlay side dots fully installed (not stuck on!)
- Body refinished in nitro seafoam green over two colour sunburst
- Heavy relic finish with lots of checking
- Neck refinished in tinted nitro with matching seafoam headstock
- Back of neck nitro worn back down, tinted and left with a super smooth satin finish
- Gold Fender decal applied
- Fender Rosewood Thumb rest added
- All hardware reliced
- New parchment pickguard with subtle relic
- Squier neckplate replaced with plain relic one
OK, OK I know the whole "relic" thing divides players, and in part that is due to some pretty awful garage hammer and angle grinder jobs, but when it is done properly it takes a LOT of time and skill, and I would defy you to find a custom shop relic that is and less well executed as this one.
This is so nice we are offering it with a Hiscox hard case...just so that you don't mark it!
Hand on heart this could never be sold for the cost of the build, it would be pushing £800+, so consider this if you are embarking on a project yourself!
This one, cased is up for £499 and is as good a Mustang as you will ever play!.
