Matching headstock Basses NEEDED :)

Recommended Posts

As i am looking for a Japanese JB matching headstock and binding (the JB65B and JB66B) i though that we could share our matching headstock basses.

All matching headstock basses are welcome :) JB, PB, MM, all shapes, all luthiers...
Please to post a picture and a short description (brand, year, details...)

Here my first contribution
2010-2012 Fender Japan JB65B Silver


Edit : a mistake in my sentence AND restore my picture

Nice!
Where did you buy it from, please?
I have been trying to find a white, rosewood, matching headstock jazz bass for ages but no luck so far :(

What great mystery is this? The body is from a Vintage V4 "Reissue". The neck is from the Internet (I don't remember the retailer). The most noteworthy bit of this bass is the wee switch below the pickups. It activates a hidden Wilkinson J pickup buried in the body under the 24th fret position. I think the switch brings it in parallel with the main pickup. I bolstered the pickup with extra magnets to try and extend the range of the pickup up to the strings.

Dig;

I''m planning to repeat the exercise with a Warman Dominator pickup on a new project bass. Edited by icastle

Your Jazz on the OP looks gorgeous.

I got two matching headstock basses, a Fender and a Modulus, pictured together with their now slightly self conscious naked headstock brother.

Really cool all black. Bravewood can do splendid relic instruments. Mojo inside :)

Not to everyone's taste I know - I happen to love 'em. Here are my two Bongos, matching headstock as standard.

I've been GASsing for a MM Bongo ever since I saw Gail Ann Dorsey playing a graphite 5'er with Bowie on his Reality tour at the SECC in Glasgow back in November 2003...still never even had a play on one, yet alone owned one!

I agree with you LeftyJ. Lollipop or paddle tuners are missing :)
A fellow groover on Talkbass found solutions for wrong details on these reissue basses

A P project I put together a few years ago:

Having the head matching the actual body was a bit unrealistic but I do like how it turned out.
