Squier Vista Series Musicmaster Bass Shell Pink 1997
Squier Vista Series Musicmaster bass, made 1997 in Taiwan in shell pink. These were made for one year only, 1997, and were a reissue of Fender's Musicmaster bass that was made 1971-81. It's basically a stripped down version of the also-short-scale Mustang bass. This is lightweight, sports a delightfully slim little neck and some no-fuss electronics... really you just pick up and play; everything is easy. The shell pink finish is extremely tasty; it's got done serious fading and has yellowed to a peachy hue that's dripping with charm and style. There's some cool natural aging on the hardware to match. If you like the comfort and ease of a short scale bass and don't mind looking cooler than everyone else in the room, this is surely a fun little friend to have around
