Looks amazing. I've always loved black paisley; in fact one of my favourite guitar pics I've ever seen is of a black paisley Strat that I thought was vintage but might not be. I never thought they'd bring it out as a production line finish!

That would go so badly wrong if I did it 😂

It's not easy.   

I felt OK about my 3rd attempt but when I bought the MIJ Paisley, it looked crap 🤣

Refinished it soon afterwards 👍

some artist-type could paint the paisleys on with a tiny paintbrush . Like a mural, except tiny .

My daughter is one of those artist types, I actually asked her to do this on a scratch plate for me. 

She told me to go buy a template. 

Apparently she didn't fancy the job. I suspect it may have been a little too labour intensive.

from what i know and have seen, on a Jazz the front plate doesnt cover any routing holes.. so is merely functional and cosmetic.. looks great in clear... and nice simple shape for the control cavity... which could be made more simple if omiting the bigger guard, albeit from new with no screw holes....

wish a P was like this, or routed, control cavity from the rear...

Are they different to the japanese ones that have been out for a long time, or is this a new range?

I love paisley and would love that finish but they are out of the budget I would pay for a fender. Looks great though.

Black Paisley on a Jazz 😦?    Paisley should either be Pink or Blue and only on an early P Bass body......

These are Japanese, but they've not hit any stores yet - so not sure which ones you mean to be honest?

This is of course absolutely correct. 

All should know this ; shame Moses left that tablet behind 😃

Well, I was going to go for the Strat, got a good price lined up, but decided against it as the spec was lesser than my current Strat.

The black paisley is really cool but I can't justify an instrument at the moment purely on finish.

There was a range of black paisley fenders in 2012 / 2013 iirc. But now I look and see there is a new range.

Ahh, the black paisley strat and tele?  Don't think there was a bass was there?  And I think they were MIM and not MIJ?

Yeah, they weren’t metallic under the burst - wasn’t the true paisley foil type finish. Was like a print underneath. Not great.

OK, maybe I will get one when they get second hand!

I got offered one. The guy at the shop is a friend and knows I love paisley, plus I told him that if ever they release another paisley bass let me know. Am getting first refusal but I'll probably take it, lol. They're getting the strat in too. Think it's arriving at the shop around the 28th July. 

I have a Fender black paisley tele already so this will be a nice match for it. 

Agree though, it would look nicer with a matching pasiley pickguard. Even a transparent one with the little black bloom around the neck pickup the hide the route would do.

So glad this is thick end of £1100, if it had been a Squier MII at < £500 I would have been doomed.

Are but the blue wasn’t Paisley was it? It was flowers, like they wore in their hair in San Francisco at the time 🤣

Is that the James Burton Signature model which is really cool. Apparently when he got his pink paisley tele, Elvis was rather rude about it! Given some of the outfits The King wore one might think pink paisley was quite subdued.

Couldn’t resist - have pre-ordered one from a shop that’s only getting one in stock!
