Squier Vista Series Musicmaster bass, made 1997 in Taiwan in vintage white. 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 weighs almost nothing, has a slim little comfy neck and simple electronics... really you just pick up and play; everything is easy. If you like the comfort and ease of a short scale, this is an unusual and fun little addition to the collection!
