I have probed support for starting a Telecaster Bass Club on TalkBass, and at least nobody objected starting the club. The charter is a bit loose, as there are a few restoration projects ongoing, and it is difficult to find original parts for these. In addition, since the original Fender Telecaster Bass is not a very common instrument to find, Squiers, Custom Shop, and Warmoth/partscaster projects are allowed.
Here are a couple of new pictures of my 1978 Telecaster Bass that I bought from Chrisguitars ( http://www.chrisguitars.com/
) a few years back. (I was going to get a better flash but the Duracells had leaked in the battery compartment and I need to clean the gunk out...)

I welcome everyone with a suitable Telecaster Bass to post their pictures and apply for a number!
