    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?
    This is the bass in question

    That is a very cool website. Thank your buddy for me!
  5. Fenders OFFICIAL color chart is here...
  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 :(

    I don't think that the photography does the Novak chart justice (or it's inaccurate).
    Compare Burgundy Mist; Fender is very accurate
