    Thanks, man. The neck is really sweet on this bass.
    One of the best I've ever played with the darkest rosewood.
    Vince did a nice job on this one.

    Wow, guess I'm the only one who likes Fender CS basses.

    I think a lot of us like them. I think $$$ may be an issue ;)

    There are several CS's on ebay for $2200 and lower. I picked up my "59 RI for $1700 and I've seen NOS's for as low as $1500. What folks are now dropping on the Fender P5. There are many folks here into Alleva Coppolo's, Sadowsky's & Laklands that are $3000+. Maybe less than that for Lak's. I contacted Jimmy Feb 13th and was quoted $3895.00 for the KBP5 Classic. I'm not sure $$$ are the issue. Maybe the site here is to promote other brands? That's cool. I own a Sadowsky, Lakland & Mike Lull, and I enjoy them all. They're all beautiful and play nice. I just think it's funny there's not one other person here on this site that has a Fender CS bass to show. Oh well. Guess I showed up at the Formal in Costume. :bag:

    If thats a costume my 05 CIJ and 93 MIM look foolish! Although they are both choice pieces.

    Yep, love Theo's Pino. Saw that earlier today I believe. :) I thought I would broaden the spectrum to all Fender CS's.

    I actually had an '86 MIJ Squier Jazz that had the copper grounding strip. Really wish I had that sucker back.
     
  18. Always wanted to approach the Fender CS to get a quote for a custom, but, other than going to some far-flung branches of Guitar Center (and probably having to deal with typical clueless GC staff), I haven't found any other way to get in touch with them. Anyone got any details?
