    I am going to order my American Design Experience bass in the next day or two. (There are other threads to talk about if you like that concept or not :bassist: )

    I am down to four color scheme choices shown below. My main player is an American 08 Standard (shown below below) as a color comparison. I want different if I am going to build MY bass.

    Just out of curiosity, which way would you go? I can hear the comments already: "what do YOU like, that's all that matters." And "insert Fender bashing here." For those that want to play along, of the ones I have designed (and one by my four year old daughter), which would you select?

  2. I'd make a AVRI '63 P for only 2/3 of the price. :cool:

    IF IT WAS AVAILABLE FOR EUROPE :bawl:

    If you could get the silverburst with black block inlays IMO it would be one of the nicest looking combinations ever...

    Not in a p bass unfortunately.
     
  6. Always like the Silverburst finish, though I'd go rosewood on that, but I've REALLY been craving the LPB/Tort combo... so I voted for both

    I dislike the first least.

    I picked Blue/Tort/Rosewood which I'm guessing is your daughter's creation. I had a MIM P that looked just like that which I, regrettably, sold a couple years ago.

    I have never been a fan of pearl inlays on a maple board, so i guess the rosewood/lpb? It would look so much better with a mint pg tho...

    I like that one too. I'm also guessing that it's the daughter bass because it's the odd one out in terms of fretboard.

    The blue one would look killer with a maple fretboard.

    I was thinking silverburst, but now I am really thinking about the one my 4 year old little girl designed ... but I went vintage with it...
