    THE perfect head stock!

    I like G&L but the head stock while not bad aint the Fender!

    It's odd how we can spot a fake that's just a little bit off...

    It's true. Even though there are many variations of Fender headstocks, you can tell at a glance if looks genuine or not.

    I'm a sucker for that bold, '70s custom logo found on the top right.

    Does my preference for Teles influence my bass preferences? Why of course- I really like the '51 style headstock.

    Crazy, really......I don't know the first thing about basses. :rolleyes:

    Nice pic. The tele headstock is one of the reasons why I like them so much

    I kinda wish my mustang and DS had 70s style model logos, but I'm happy overall 20191019_111756.jpg
    Yea, lots of copying of the shape.

    This is the most recent I've noticed. Rest of the bass isn't very fendery, but this headstock sure is...

    That would be a fender FM60e. Not necessarily valuable, but a little on the obscure side. It’s a five string semi hollow bodied electric tuned like a mandolin with an extra lower C string.
