I'm in the market for a cheap-ish split coil P bass, but the current Classic Vibe seems to only be in stock at MF in Fiesta Red which doesn't do anything for me. There seem to be a lot of cool basses in the Artist Series, though, especially the upcoming Eva Gardner P (which comes in my favorite color combination). So are these artist series basses similar in quality to the VM basses? The CV? Hopefully they're better than the Affinity series, right?
