The 57 in SX SJB57 means 1957?

  1. Just curious.
    Perhaps my Lake Placid Blue would look better with an aged pick guard.

    I belive that it means that it is modeled after fenders 1957 style bass.

    Which basically means Maple fingerboard from waht I can tell. The 62's are Rosewood, and the 75's are Ash bodyies

    Yea if you do a search Kurt explains everything about the model numbers and how to dechiper them to know what you're getting.. IMHO I think it is great and I also think all manufacturers should take a page from his book and start doing that.
