Is that a Musicwoman? 8)
Hot pink was a guy color in the 80's.

This morning on FB I saw a photo from Ernie Ball of a pink Stingray and the actual name is Pepto Pink. Hopefully a very limited edition.
The 80s are back! What's next? Spandex and big hair? Oh the humanity

Awesome.

Regarding the Pepto-Bismol pink finish, I have learned that it has a name - Metallic Plumglo - and in 2014 a small number of 4003's and 620's were made in this color for the Japanese market.

Fender Basses / Custom Shop Pino Palladino sig P

Today at the local Fender dealer I spotted a cool looking Pino Palladino sig P. Picked it up, and immediately put it back. It felt like 12lbs. The thing was T40 heavy. Anybody else had a similar experience? Is Pino's '61 P exceptionally heavy?

Just a used 2016 4003S Jetglo, but I think it looks extra cool with the replacement black pickguard and TRC.

Paul Boyer's naked Tux (Stripped 4003SPC Tuxedo) on eBay.

RIC posted this to fb and Twitter: "A prototype finished today. General production worthy or nah?"



There's also a pinkish 4003. RIC used the hashtag #mykindoftownchicago so my guess is these will be sold by CME.

This?

Yes. It didn't have pickups when I saw it.

I wanted to order a non-cutaway slotted headstock short-scale version, they said they don't do short scales yet but when they do, they will build me one. Like a bass version of this -

Ever check out anything by Gil Yaron or B&G guitars?
Yes they gave me a tour. The bass was still a prototype then.

What do you think? Jerusalem is 40 min drive from Tel Aviv. And he's charging only $40 for a lesson.

Don't forget that the whole "relic" nonsense started with Fender's Custom Shop

Good violin makers have been doing that for ages.

This is a violin made by my good friend Shlomo Moyal, who teaches violin making in Italy. He built it for his daughter. It's a Antonio Stradivari "Hellier"1679 model replica.



And a bass - this is a Bernhard Simon Fendt II 1840c Model replica he made for his wife, a fantastic classical upright bass player and teacher.

So sorry but I LOVE IT. Go ahead and mock me.



Also... a T-bird in this theme would be killer.
