  1. Thanks and no worries about the rules, this is just an excuse to post bass porn anyway! I included Pilgrim's mutt in since his body is a '63 but figured '64 should technically be the cut.

    Yes, CBS musical instruments bought the company from Leo Fender in early (maybe even Jan.) of 1965.

  7. How's that '67 Coronado sound?
     
  8. This 63 P-bass has a long history as a former studio bass from Covert Gardens in London to multiple tours across Europe. Now it lives in Australia and gets played most days/evenings.

    Personally, it looked much better before you had all that patina of a half century of mojo stripped away. To each his own.

    He didn't strip it, he refinished it to the burst. Not the other way around.
