77 Jazz with the pickup cover on
My Squier VM Jazz with the ashtray and pickup cover on
Awesome bass, man!
A snippet of useless information: my Fender Precision ashtrays are in pristine condition. I took them off my brand new bass in January 1969 and they've been in the sock drawer ever since.
Has anyone ever done a J bass 2-piece ashtray on a PJ with a P style body? I would like to have one that covers the Jazz PU but it looks like it would end up making it really close to the other cover on the P PU.
1977 Precision and 1971 Jazz
Hi Guys does anyone know if Fender Jazz Bridge Covers (Ashtray) always had the F Stamped on them ????????? I have seen some with and some without and wondered if this was because of the year the bass was made ???.
Mine were never installed but you got like all that chrome !!
They always had the F. If it's missing then it's not from a Fender bass.
Posted this earlier, but heres about what it would look like. About a decade ago I was obsessed with chrome enough to put a J cover on my P-bass.
There isn't a J pickup under there, but you get the general idea what it would look like. It really does minimize the amount of space you have to play, though at the time I was playing mostly at the neck anyway.
I love the pickup covers on some instruments, but I value tonal flexibility enough that I'll probably never put a bridge cover on a jazz again. It just covers too much space.
Far as I know, if there's no F then it isn't a Fender. I have a J-bass bridge cover with no F that I got on an SX bass back when some of them came with covers. If anyone's interested...
My '76 P...I still regret getting rid of it
I would too.
At least you still have a good photo of it.
My Squier CV 60's Pbass. Both covers, mint pickguard Geezer Butler pup and zerofret.
Recently installed the pickup cover and Seymour Duncan SPB-1.
Where did you find a matching tug bar?
Painted it myself. I went to Home Depot and they matched the paint color.
I wonder if they can do that for my Lake Placid Blue Jazz Bass since it's a metallic color.
