    I've been looking for this color combo for a while, but aside from a DJ4 in black sparkle, haven't seen it. Dark rosewood w/binding and pearl blocks on the neck are a must, of course. Any fenders from the 70s or customs out there with this look?

    This doesn't meet all of your criteria, but it will get you started on your way. Introducing my "stealth" fretless:

    This is what I'm looking for, I think I've seen one a long time ago somewhere on the net.

    The bello sig is nice, I I like the 70s logo in silver but I'm thinking the 75 ri with a w/b/w pg would be the best. If only they were easy to find, I can't even get a pic right now.

    The hamer is nice, too.

    I think you might want to check out the Fender Aerodyne. The Japanese non export version of it (available from this dealer on ebay) is a little different looking.

    I own one and I would also like to say.. a nice bass.

    Found it on some japanese sites, I think ishibashi carries it but do they still ship to the US?

    The model is JB75US/FC. In the pics I see the fender logo, but no 'jazz bass,' so I'm assuming it's on there, but in black. :ninja:

    It also comes in oly white: [​IMG]

    But I think I prefer the 60s version:

    yeah, this is the very same bass ive been looking for now for about 5 years. The blocks for me are not as important though. They do exist, theres one introducing the late 60's models in the Fender Bass book, jack daley with lenny kravitz has a 66 without the inlays, and these jap frnder models are the only ones other than aerodynes and jaguars that are avaiable now, other brands im unsure of. The vintage are super hard to find and really expensive as there only one off custom color combos. Check around for a nash, ive seen those like this on occassion. Im actually trying to buy a neck right now with blocks and a black headstock, build my own, its getting pricey though. Good luck, i guess were compitition now so we must be enimies!:ninja:

    My recently acquired Valenti has this look. The fretboard is ebony though, with no dots at all. Pickguard is b/w/b matte black, which I really like (no fingerprints or fingernail scratches). There's a pickup cover as well, but it's not shown in this pic that Nino took:

    thread resurrection.... Hoping to start a project soon and would love a matching black headstock.

    Right now the plan is to build the neck and paint myself to get what I want. Any other ideas folks?
