    Hello,

    If I had money to purchase a custom shop fender I would love to get one just like Geddy Lee's red jazz that he has been using for a couple songs on the last few tours. I love it because its not to flashy just right to me. Sounds mean as hell too!

    I just go a 59 custom shop reissue relic p. When I played it and closely examined it and had it re- examined by a well-known, luthier, we both determined it was defective from the factory. The neck was straight. However, the fretboard was not. I had to pull the frets and re-level the fingerboard. He said that he sees problems like that all the time, even from the custom shop! I was appalled given the price paid, they are putting out defective junk. Fender "customer service" is useless/non-existent. Last time for me.

    Not a Master Built but a '97 Cunetto 60's bass. It has one of the darkest rosewood fretboards I've ever seen.

    Love this color. Do you know if it is Seafoam Green or Surf Green? It's funny how many different shades of these two colors I see. This is perfect, especially with the tort gaurd!

    Actually.. It's daphne blue!
    Notoriously difficult colours to photograph, it's is a little green though and in that picture I think really green, but it's not a real blue blue!
    Tort guard is going! Mint green on the way :)
