This is a very cool Mustang bass. The Neckplate with the serial number isn’t original; that number, with the preceding L, indicates production between 1962 and 1965, but the Mustang bass didn’t come into production until 1966. The neck has no date but is stamped 0400-1243 in red and J. Torres in black, dating it to 1974 and matching the pot codes.Regardless, this is a largely original, great bass.
