    Hatred obscures all distinctions.
    Hello Music has a couple of 2012 Am Std P's left on their site at pretty good deals: Black w/ rosewood and Charcoal w/ rosewood. I have an old AVRI that I love but these have been haunting me every morning as they pop up on my email.

    I know the neck is modern C and my AVRI is the official baseball bat! So it must be a little faster. Suppose to have the graphite truss rod and Custom Shop pickups quality? Any pros/cons from someone that owns one of the newer Precisions?

    QC's unpredictable, especially on sale stuff for some mysterious reason. Sometimes fine, sometimes not. Most buyers can't tell the difference anyway. [shrug]

    I'm not personally a fan of the current post-'08 American Standards. I just don't like the "new" features, with the exception of the latest pickup change. I'm also not crazy about the remaining Hello colors.

    I have a feeling they're great.

    I have a 2012 Am Standard in Sunburst, and it is one of the finest basses I have ever owned (out of close to a hundred).

    I have two 2012 Am Standards P Bass's both are really fine examples, both purchased mail order sight unseen.
