Hush! That's crazy talk! :ninja:

I'm guessing that Dan is intending something like Pietro's 5 string Jazz - #020. Am I right Dan? It's certainly got me a thinking... :hmm

Yeah, probably more like #20.

Actually mostly like bassbass's red jazz creation of his own - one of the best basses I've ever played.

I'm not sure, since it was only available from '60 to '65 and replaced then I'd say it probably wasn't that popular. I think it looks hot though :thumbup:

Some paint chips started arriving in the mail today, once I get all the colours I'm missing I'll update the first post with all the vintage Fender colours

Foam Green - the colour people have grown to love as Seafoam Green

Phil,

Are these just for a collection, or will you be trying to replicate or offer some of the more exotic colours for your instruments?

Cheers

I'm pretty sure I read somewhere where Phil said that he can offer almost any custom colour from this range.

I think I mentioned in the first post that I was planning on offering all the original Fender custom colours. If I didn't then yes that's the idea :D I can get all the colours matched locally by my paint supplier, I wanted to make sure the colours would be totally accurate which is why I went straight to the original source by getting the same paint chips Leo would have gotten back in the day.

I just updated the first post of this thread with new clearer pictures and added all the new colours I received this week. At this point i'm only missing Ocean Turquoise. There's a few more colours added in the first post that weren't posted yet.
