  1. So say your a Fender lover and you've got a shot at owning 2 vintage instruments. Given that you already own a Sunburst precision, which '64 Jazz color do you pick?

    Just to shake things up - would you even get a Jazz bass or would you double up on a second precision bass?

    The pbass has to stay.

  2. Probably another sunburst . Although I prefer p basses (have 5 ) you need a jazz as well. ( I gave 1 fretted and 2 Fretless. )
  3. Oly white/tort pickgurad/rosewood fretboard :cool:
  4. I have a 64' jazz (vintage) and I say jump on it... Maybe a fiesta red ?

    Funnily enough, I am seriously wanting a vintage P.

    I would have said fiesta red but since that's not an option i voted Oly white.

    I have a 2008 jazz deluxe V - nice :bassist:

    With the white and led stage lighting, it can be any color you want too.
  8. What fretboard does the P have?

    If it's RW, I'd go for a black/black/maple Jazz

    If it's maple, I'd go for either Oly White/black or tort/rosewood, or maybe LPB/parchment or mint/RW

    I don't know which boards were offered on which years, so take that with a pinch of salt

    Black if its a matching headstock.

    Then LPB if its a matching headstock and the black wasnt.

    If none of the options have a matching headstock then white.

    When in doubt, go for Olympic White/tort. Always.
  11. Carrot orange with a tort pickguard! Please note that my in-laws are Irish Catholic, so I like all the orange I can get. However, orange was my favorite color even before I met my wife. Furthermore, raw carrots are my favorite vegetable. Finally, we all know that "a carrot is as close as a rabbit gets to a diamond". D. "Captain Beefheart" van Vliet

    I agree.

    ...but, I'm not sure why the color of one bass needs to "compliment" that of another. [​IMG]

    just a question, nothing more.
  13. PreCBS Jazzes have gone up recently. They comfortably outstrip the Precisions at around twice the cost. I think the Precisions are good value!

    As for colour you didnt offer Sonic Blue although I think Sonic Blue looks better on Precisions. Olympic White is a good alternative to SB but the white paint sometimes strips off, which doesnt look as attractive as flaking off you get with SB .

    Thanks. A sunburst P and an OWH Jazz add up to this:
    See? Perfect match.

    Personally I think a sunburst Jazz would go nice with the sunburst precision, and overall I prefer Jazz basses. Mainly because it hurts when I P...
  17. Interesting results so far. It kinda confirms what I thought already but always interesting to hear back from the community- especially when it comes to the new AVRI line.

    Any of those solid colors would work for me, IF we are talking matching headstocks. If not, definitely sunburst.

    Natural is no option?

    I don't mind what colour a bass is and would go by condition of the instrument.
