    There's been a few pre-CBS Fender threads posting pics but seems no one's started a club for these yet--so I'm doing it. Post yer pics and get a number!

    Here's my '64 P-bass to kick it off:

    Nice! Is that finished with lacquer or oil?

    Feels like lacquer. My first P was natural with a white guard and rosewood board and it was old and beat up when I had it in the early 80s, so when this cropped up and I could afford it I jumped on it. My birth year and all I had to do was swap out the (non original) pickguard. It was also missing the decal, JohnK fixed me up with the decal, aged white PG, and an incredible setup.
