I have a Fender P-Bass body being painted by a friend and due to to the info I had on the body it was... Supposedly a late 50's body. My buddy ( re finisher) says due to the nail holes used in the body the Fender finish shop it is a 60's body. What can you gurus tell me about the nail usage and dating without actually seeing it. There are no more identifying marks thou I know this bass body was on the wall of a local Tavern for about 30 yrs before my friend acquired it about 10 yrs ago as they were tearing the joint down and throwing this Bass body in the Dumpster!!!!! . It is an extremely light Alder body. I am doin it in Shell Pink with White Pearl pick guard, Gold Hardware......pimped out !! Seymore D hot PU with an Audere Preamp hit me !! peace Kirk OH... PS: I really need an old school Fender Pre Bass Decal....got one ...hit me !!
