    The older I get the heavier it seems. That is one reason it's been in the case all this time.:)

    Do you still like your PV74s?
    I had mine in for a while...I like them....Not as much as my CS64s in my Flea relic, But I do wonder if I would like the Custom Shop 60s CS60s which I can purchase, more than the PV74s I have in my 2010 AM STD??

    Never used any of those other pu's you mention so I can't say how the '74s compare. Yes, they are still in the bass and it's a sound I know well and like.

    it’s a fsr or special edition gunmetal blue body and a classic 70s jazz neck. i think it may be getting a neck swap soon though.
    what do you think would look better on this body?

    1. 1969: white pickguard, rosewood fretboard, white binding, pearloid blocks, cbs logo

    2. 1973: white pickguard, maple board, black blocks/binding, cbs logo

    3. 1965: white pickguard, rosewood fretboard/dots, transition logo

    I vote Maple - Where did you find the '69 Rosewood neck? If not using it, do you want to sell it??

  15. Oh man that's a tough choice! It's great as is for sure, looks sexy. I really like all 3 but I might be inclined to do the maple as it looks a bit more uncommon or unconventional with that color closely followed by the blocked and bound option. To further muddy things there is always the elusive bound with dot option. Where there is choice there is also misery. I still think it has a high wow factor how it sits now though!

    They all look nice. Are the saddles threaded? If not that maple would be interesting with the black guard and you could keep the 70's vibe going. If a threaded saddle, I'm partial to the block/binding neck reminiscent of the yummy late 66 basses. :)

    i don’t have a 69 or 69 style neck. i’m looking for one.

    that’s what i was thinking too. it is more uncommon.
    i also thought of dots with binding and lollipop tuners. those usually have matching headstocks though and i’ll have to get it custom painted if i want to do that.

    saddles are threaded but the adjustment screws are hex and not slotted. i don’t remember how and wheee i got that configuration. pickup spacing is 60s. i like your thinking.

    the 3 example basses i showed are all real 60s/70s examples where the lake placid blue darkened to that color. i like how gun metal blue is very similar to that.

    Yes and no. The matching headstocks are definitely cool, but there are non-matching headstocks out there. I picked up a FCS version last year with no matching headstock and like it because it's unusual to see a natural headstock unless it's burst.
