The Bass Lives!

Got my 1986 '57 Fender P-Bass Reissue refinished in Plum Crazy Purple to match the Goofy Grape.

The color is impossible to reproduce in a photo, it looks too blue but make no mistake this is a Chrysler purple!

Man, I have to admit it is loud in the looks department.

I love it, but it is a love it or hate it bass in this color.

The gold pickguard is 1957 correct and so are the covers and thumb rest.

Plays like a dream and is strung with flats.

I dig it, even if it is a bit on the wild side.

What do you think?

Here she is with the rest of the "fleet."

From left to right:

Plum craziness...
