    Just a quick survey, of the current MIM Standard color combos, which is your favorite? In this hypothetical you can of course change the pickguard color to your liking :bassist:.

    I voted for LPB/Maple, however I would choose LPB/Rosewood if it was my bass

    Maple and 3T sunburst. Classic combo. The others are nice too. P basses look balanced and neat, even lefties, so the colour tends to only enhance their looks - not make them uglier like some shapes IMO.

    I own a Black/Maple, but the CAR/Rosewood is my fav. White/Rosewood is a close third.

    Anyone who voted for anything but 'carrots' is dead wrong. Oh wait, there is no 'carrot' option.

    This poll is therefore null and void. Carry on people, nothing to see here. :p

    Anything and maple...very cool. CAR and anything...hot hot hot. Sunburst and rosewood...classic. Black and rosewood with black PG...priceless! :bassist:

    (Full disclosure: my first bass was/is an older black MIM Standard Precision with rosewood fretboard.)

    If I had lots of money, lots of room at home, lots of chances to play a P (basically I'm a J guy), I think I'd get a complete set to match my wardrobe and my different moods:
    black/black rw, white/white m, black/tort rw (or black/abalone), and CAr/white rw.
    Anyone for sending me some Christmas present?

    Wow, RW/3TS is winning by quite a bit. Can't beat that classic look eh?
