Anyone have pics of a jazz in Burgundy Mist? I would love to see them if possible. Thanks!
I LOOOOOVE burgundy mist as a cutom color. When I finally get around to ordering a Lull for myself, it will probably be in burgundy mist with a matching headstock! I've found a few photos of this color scheme on a jazz bass from time to time with just a regular google search, but unfortunately I don't have any of them saved on my computer. You'll also find a number of strats jazzmasters in that color combo too.
This is my 62 RI from the Fender America Custom Shop finished in Burgundy Mist Metallic. The headstock is finished natural.
I sold it a couple of years ago.
still thinking about that one
Bleh. Looks like salmon.
Thornton, i think that bass looking terrific!
I agree, Looks awesome!
YES! That's the stuff, right there! Woo Hoo! Love it, love it, love it. Is that a mid-60's original, a refin, or a refinished '62 Reissue?
nope, deffinitely not my bag. But everyone of course it entitled to their opinion of beauty. I'm sure it *sounds* beautiful
It's a MIJ '62 RI. I'm still trying to figure out the origins of this bass. It has Made in Japan stamped under the neckplate but the serial # coincides with an original '60-'61 jazz bass and not a MIJ bass. I was told that it's a 2003 Japan Custom shop, but I don't think there really is a Japan Custom shop.
I'll pull it apart and check the neck stamp itself eventually. I do know that it plays and sounds fantastic, and that's the important part. Plus it looks like a million bucks.
Here's the MIM 60's classic. They were a limited run, but apparently still available at Daves Guitars. http://www.davesguitar.com/fender/basses1.asp
And that's what I thought this might be, but it's stamped MIJ and those were MIM AFAIK.
Jugghaid, your's is definitely not the MIM. The mexicans have the regular 3 knobs, not stacked.
I know, but someone could have swapped 'em. It has cloth covered vintage wiring too.
Can you post a bigger photo? It is hard to see. Looks nice but would like a bigger photo.
Okay, it's not a Jazz Bass, but it is certainly Burgundy Mist!
I got the idea for the color from Guy Pratt's BM '64 Jazz from the Bass Book, though.
That is... wierd I guess. I cant decide if I like it, I would never expect to see that scheme on a bass. What kind is it?
I have one of those. It's my favorite Jazz bass! I don't have a good digital pic of it. If this thread is still hangin' around after the holidays, I'll try to post a pic...
Sorry, I just copied that off Dave's Guitars site. If you click on it it will open a slightly bigger version. These are really nice basses. I've played about 4 different ones and they were all great. The neck is my favorite part. Super glossy and more full feeling. I'm not a fan of these modern satin, flat, think necks.
