My perfect FrankenFender - have a go ...

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Davo-London, Dec 4, 2013.

  1. OK here's the challange. Create your perfect Fender. Apologies to those anti-Fenderites. But this is a bit of fun.

    Every component has to be from a production Fender at some time. Here we go:

    Body: 1957 Precision
    Neck: Jazz - 1961 maple/brazilian rosewood fingerboard
    Headstock: 1951 Precision (ie Telecaster shape) not painted
    Frets: 1960's Pre-CBS
    Pickguard type: Precision-shape, pre-CBS 3-ply
    Pickups: Pre-CBS P and J in 1960's positions
    Controls: Passive VTVT as per 1961 Jazz
    Pickguard colour: white-black-white
    Paint type: Nitro-cellulose
    Body Colour: Sonic Blue relic'd to about 6/10

    If I could, I'd create this as a photoshop ... your turn :bassist:
