Fender 1970 guitar and bass catalog. Page 24. Details of the Fender Mustang bass. Pictured in competition burgundy finish. This is very confusing as most people refer to this colour as blue! note the matching coloured headstock, which occurred almost exclusively on 1969 basses. No other Fender catalogues show this feature. For other colour options see the 1970 Fender color chart on page 95.
In 1970, the suggested retail price of the Competition Mustang bass was $239.50, or $262.50 for a left-handed model.
Sure, solid Fender bass sound at a popular price
