Hey all. Just picked up a 2001 fender custom shop relic. I have had many many basses over the years from sadowskys to ken smiths lakland USA, etc. this bass is one of my top 3 for sure I have ever played. It's black with a matching black headstock. I had a 2009 nos that was a dog compared to this bass in feel and tone. This one is a hair under 8.5lbs vs near 10lbs for the nos I had. Maybe that's part of it. Are 2001 cs 1964 relics special? Is black with matching headstock rare? Never seen one before. So far its a keeper for life.
