    Howdy. I've been looking for a butterscotch blonde Fender MIA P-Bass with a rosewood fretboard. I don't see too many of those. I saw one from the 60's on ebay. I see lots with maple. Has Fender made such an animal in the last 10 years or so?

    Thanks in advance,

    They're out there. When I went to my local GC (Sacramento) last month they had 2 new MIA natural ash Blonde P's with RW boards. I'm actually more fond of the alder body/maple board config. myself. You may also want to try a G&L SB-1 or LB-100-all the specimens I've played have been at least as good as the best MIA Fender P's I've tried for considerably less $$.
  3. The finish known as "Olympic white" or "vintage white" turns blonde after some time. There's also "white blonde" which is a transparent finish over ash and looks pretty nice.
