  2. I don't have one, but your bass is amazing! Definately my dream bass; color, pickups, everything. Perfect.

  3. I don't have a Custom either, but yours is beautiful. Just one question though - isn't that an unusual placement for the thumb rest, being alongside the neck? Do you use that?

    It was put on by the previous owner. I don't like it but it doesn't get in the way. I may replace the PG one day. The thumb rest is not drilled in so that's good.

    Hi, I will add...
    Here is my 2010 64 jazz relic in Daphne Blue.
    Absolutely love it, it is all I have played for the last year, have not really put it down.

    So light, and so musical even when not plugged in

    Cool to have a number, if you are going to do them...

    I guess this is a "Custom Shop"...

    I have owned 2 of these... Currently only own 1... They are both a bit different in feel though surprisingly... But both pretty much spot on... The necks are amazing...

    I own a Kubicki EX-Factor built by the Fender Custom Shop,
    does that count?

    OK, so let's make a few rules:
    - The bass must be a Fender Custom Shop Bass
    - You must post pictures of your Custom Shop Bass
    - One of the photos must show the Custom Shop logo on the bass

    I know this is a replica of Jaco's bass, but I always wondered how the wear and tear happened on the bottom of the top horn? It just doesn't seem like somewhere that would be touched too much.

    Probably from him carrying it there. He was known to drag it around without a case... The finish on the original is very delicate...

    I'd like a number please. I've wondered why there hasn't been a CS Club before; thanks for taking this on. Sign me up. Here are pics of my two CS '64 NOS Jazz Basses and my new (arrived yesterday) CS '60 NOS Precision Bass. I use TI flats; I'll put them on the P in a few days.

    The wait killed me too but it was well worth it! I couldn't be happier with the end result. I have to say that Fender's Custom Shop exceeded my expectations.
