    To me, it's the modern style P-bass in sunburst w/ a white scratchplate and rosewood neck. It just looks contemporary and balanced.
    What's the coolest P-bass look to you guys?

    Not that I'm a part of the tort-or-die army, but my favorite is rosewood, black, and tort for sure.

    im with the guy on rosewood black tort but also with the maple fretless tort :p both so sexy.
  8. I would like a p-bass with the same colour as my squier jazz, antique burst. Looks beaut. But the p-bass I hope to get if I do well in my exams is a candy apple red American special p-bass with a black p-guard. Certainly is a great carrot on a stick for this stubborn ass! :p oh, but there's lake placid blue too. Darn. :/
    yep, either antique burst (not even sure if it's possible) with tort p-guard
    Candy apple red with black p-guard
    Or lake placid blue with white p-guard.

    Maybe some find it boring, but I actually like B&W + rosewood best.

    Hmm.. Hard to choose mate. I'm going for a black body, matched headstock and blue pickguard.

    Don't have a picture, since I don't own any P-bass :p

    I'll see your look and raise you a flamed maple top.


    Butterscotch/Black/Maple is pretty cool too.

  16. I wouldn't say that is my favorite, but I'm a sucker for that combo, especially with bridge and pickup covers and a thumbrest.

    Take your pick (I no longer have the 60th and I regret it every day ...):

    I can imagine. I've had mine since early February and the honeymoon is nowhere near over.


    Even Sonny gets a little upset when I tell him he can't play it.

    I sold it for a CS Jazz bass ... that I then sold. I now have a 2012 MIA Jazz which, frankly has a better neck and over all feel ... but that's for another thread.

    My 2008 P-Bass is the best bass I've ever owned. And, since I put the pearloid guard on it, it's the best looking bass ever (IMO of course).
