    I finally got a vintage Jazz; a '66 black body with a rosewood board and dot markers with binding. It plays like a dream and the previous owner installed Bartolini's so it's got a growl to it.
    My question is: since the Fender logo decal is all but worn off, what are your opinions on overlaying a new (but authentic) decal, as opposed to leaving the fragmented logo that's there now? BTW, with the other changes, such as Bad Ass II Bridge and pickups, it's not as much a collector as a player.

    Thanks! Tony Noriega, Tampa

    If you wANt a real decal, there's a procedure to follow. You go to a fender service center, where they veryfy your bass is authentic (i believe pics are also necessary), and they get the decal for you. Of course, installation costs not included.
