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.
