    Hi al I'm planning a refin on my 82 Jbass, it has a crappy white refin on it now.I been searching all day for a 70's or early 80's Fender color chart and have had no luck. Anyone know where I can see or get these?
    Thanks
    This is the bass in question

  6. Awesome site, thank you for posting the link Funkster!

    paniak17, now that's another incredible site. I use the Fender site all the time and didn't even bother to look for there current color charts! Thank you.

    I really find it heart warming when TB members pull together and come up with this type of info for each other.......you guys/gals ROCK!

  7. Ah, but these are either the early colors (up to around 1970) or the current colors. My 78 P-bass, for example, had the Antigua (not shown in these charts), which was OK when I got it around 1984, but looked pretty crappy by 1998.


    Nevertheless, great sites, thanks for posting them! :cool:
     
  8. thank you for the appreciation, im just trying to give back from when ppl helped me out when i needed it

    Thanks @sissy kathy ! Fender has a really bad site that blocks lots of stuff when you're outside US. But it hadn't worked for me even using US proxy for some reason :(
