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."
