    Okay, I'm going to refinish my '59 Jazzmaster in Olympic White and I want to get it as close to what it should/ would have looked like. And Fender's in Oly White will do but I want to focus on Pre-CBS and maybe Transition era shots just to narrow down the colors and shades of that specific time frame.

    Post them here and share with all or PM me if you would please.

    Thanks and Happy Playing!

    Try the old Fender catalogs for finish choices available then. I think they were all done with Dupont car paint.

    Thanks for the suggestion, however I know what Olympic White looks like in the catalog, what I'm looking for is what it looks like 45-55 years later. I'm looking for early 60's, Pre-CBS Oly White guitar pics to see how they aged, what they look like today as that's the look I'm trying to capture when I have my '59 Jazzmaster re-sprayed.

    Here's a shot of my Dan Smith era, '82 Olympic "Cream" Strat I've had since new.

    Any shots of that era Fenders would be appreciated and Happy Playing!
