I'm thinking the middle one with the 65 transition logo is the CBS and the right side is Fender.

Is this a trick question? My guess is they're both pre-CBS.

It is very easy :D
Three heads and obviously the one to the left is not a big head.

Fender have had two big head versions and they are both present here.
The first is pre-CBS, 1958-1965 and the other is CBS 1966 onwards.

Then wouldn't that make japaxe's reply correct?
