  1. There's been a few pre-CBS Fender threads posting pics but seems no one's started a club for these yet--so I'm doing it. Post yer pics and get a number!

    Here's my '64 P-bass to kick it off:

    Feels like lacquer. My first P was natural with a white guard and rosewood board and it was old and beat up when I had it in the early 80s, so when this cropped up and I could afford it I jumped on it. My birth year and all I had to do was swap out the (non original) pickguard. It was also missing the decal, JohnK fixed me up with the decal, aged white PG, and an incredible setup.

    Haha I'm sorry I just felt like trolling a little. I can't wait to see more of these pieces of low frequency history!
