    Yep, that's it. Legend has it that Fender was not too experienced with sunburst finishes and a couple of them got burned edges. In an attempt to fix it they did a gradual fade from the edge inward, and the result was the Antigua finish. At least that's how the story goes. I love mine.
  13. Really? That's interesting. I thought it was a limited edition type deal. That only makes me want one more:hyper:

    Hi All,

    I'm in; here's my 1975 Precision.

    All original: walnut (colour, not wood), maple Jazz-style (A-width) neck.

    Amazing condition. Bought it from the original owner. I drove from Edmonton, Alberta to central South Dakota to pick her up: one day down, the next day back. In December. During a blizzard. It was worth it. :cool:

    More pics in a moment...

    Hey Beans,

    Interesting seeing the walnut/rosewood combo - what year? Neck profile?

    Nice collection, btw...
