White Fender Basses

Recommended Posts

I have to be honest , I like to think of white as white , I don’t understand why anyone would buy a white bass and be happy if it discoloured , surely that is just a poor quality finish .

there I said it !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

in mitigation I supply and fit beautiful white PVCu windows and the very thought of colour fade is abhorrent to me 9_9

I think that looks really nice with the black pickguard, is that the Elite .

Seeing that there appears to be an aversion to tort pickguards, here's my lefty Fender Pro Precision with it's original mint pickguard.....before i changed it 😂😂

Yep, a 2017 Elite bought from Karlfer of this parish as a 50th birthday pressie. It's so playable with great passive and active sounds including a great bridge pickup 'bark.

Pickguards are so subjective aren't they? The particular 9-hole 'guard I would need are like hen's teeth so I'd have trouble sourcing a different one anyway!

That top one is really nice guy, is that an original 60s jazz 🙂

Thanks @Reggaebass, it's a '62 with original finish.

That sounds like some horrible euphemism for being deceased. I certainly hope not.

Here's my 65RI Jazz from Japan quite a nice cream colour (with matching headstock).

I have "whiteout" issues. Apologies to those who find white and tort a problem. Frankly, I don't give a rats chuff!

My white and maple jazz fitted with half rounds, I use this if I’m practicing slap, which is not very often 🙂
