A couple weeks ago I had started another 5 string shootout for advice. Recently I made the decision that I'm going to stick with a four string. I've already played five string, so it's not a fear factor of learning something new. My main concern is keeping my hands alive. I work with computers all day, and the B string on top of that just takes its toll on me. Sounds crazy I know, but I noticed severe pains in the tops of my hands that just kill. The four just suits me better. Now all I have to decide on is a color. : ) I heard black is a pain to keep clean? I'm thinking of getting a 2 tone or 3 tone sunburst. I wish Fender would show the basses in the different colors on their site, and not just the color chart. If anyone has a p-bass, please post pics. It would be most appreciated. My local store seems to like stocking the same sky blue color for some reason. heh I'd like to see what some other colors look like. Thanks!
