But I want a matching headstock


Fair enough too! I've always preferred the natural headstocks myself, but I could get the crayons out and give it a whirl :think:

Can you buy a Jazz profile neck that says 'Precision '? Or custom order?

Have you looked at the fretless Black Precision on TM? If so is that a '70s neck? Cheers bro.

I saw that. Looks like a 70s neck but I'm not expert. Good deal though I hate playing fretless. I keep playing out of tune!

That looks cool as. In other news my jap squier P is just as good as the American Standard P I had. The bartolini pickup sounds mint even though I'm just playing through my guitar amp. Good enough for some crappy recordings!

A common issue :o
No consolation but it does get better with time.

What did you end up stringing this with? Have you tried a bridge mute?

I know I'm in the minority but I really like Bartolini's. Been my pickup upgrade option for 20 years. The stock one in my Growler is a heavy thing.

Bart’s are smooth and chocolately, sound lovely. I like more bite and snarl myself but it’s still a tasty tone.
