There’s nothing better on a Fender than those famous Du Pont colours. From around '69 Fender released the competition finish Mustangs, inspired by the Ford Mustang. Check out this early Talking Heads performance of Psycho Killer, Tina Weymouth cooly sports a '70's competition finish mustang modded with a straight bridge pick up. Weymouth’s jangly, syncopated, funk-inflected riffing, for me, epitomises the rad styling of the Mustang bass.
Another Mustang bass player who has pioneered the weird and wonderful, is the German maverick and melodic adventurer Holger Czukay. Revered not only for his work with seminal band Can, Czukay is also famous for his obsession with tape splicing; meticulous editing of sound snippets sourced using short-wave radio devices, frenetically fused with live instrumentation. His experimentation was truly visionary and beautifully absurd. Czukay used a Mustang bass for most of his early career in Can.
