Fender american standard p bass v
Hopefully this is the right forum to post this. I'm looking to buy a new fender but I can't decide between the olympic white and the 3 tone burst. If someone could post some pics of the newer ones or give me some recommendations I would appreciate it.

Looks great. Any thoughts on how it might sound in country music?

P basses wrote the book on country sessions. I use this 5 and my '65 p bass with flatwounds in the studio all of the time. They always sit well in the mix and the engineer can't ruin the sound with eq.

I'm glad to hear that.

If you haven't chosen yet, I wanted black with rosewood board but Fender would not do it w/o up charge. I love the white but went with black & maple neck. It was a great choice because I got a terrific instrument with light weight, great tone, vibe and feel.
I have adjusted the action stupid low (because of arthritis kickin' in) but it still has that Fender punchiness. I swapped out the PG for a leather one.

Wow I think I may like that better than the white. I would love the white with a maple neck unfortunately my budgets only like $1000. Is that a tort pick guard or a custom one?

I wanted white/maple but would have to find someone who wanted to swap necks. I ended getting a vintage modified Squier P5. While it was on it's way to me I bought a complete set of American P5 electronics and white pickguard which was available with plans to upgrade. The VM P5 sounds and feels so good, I never made the change, and I also have an American P5 to compare it to.

Is there any place to buy a maple neck for an American 5 string?

Both colors are classic. I'd go for oly white.
