    Oh, and preferably a white pickguard. Other pg colors against black too.

    Anyone have a pic? Pics?

    That's what I'm talking about!

    Thanks a lot, TB.
  4. Excellent looking bass. Since when did Fender make matching headstocks?
  5. Dunno, but I've seen a few of them. Not many though....

    Sweet bass btw

    Matching headstocks were offered for a limited time between, I believe, 61 and 68. I'm probably wrong about the exact years, but that was the general time frame.
  7. The Norman's Rare Guitars collection has a 1959 Precision Bass in Cream with a matching headstock. It was purchased from Jimmy Bryant's bass player.

    For those interested in vintage basses the Norman's Rare Guitars book is incredible. Talk about bass porn. 2+ pages of pre-CBS custom color Jazz Basses with matching headstocks.

    Here's a pic of my P-Bass. I love this thing. It's just a supermojofunkmachine! It's a '99, I bought it used, replaced the black pick guard, then added the chrome and rest.
