    Custom color means a Fender Custom shop order.

    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ :D :D :D
     
  3. Shouldn't cost more than say, ten times as much as the MIM he wants. ;-)
     
  4. for realz? you gotta go custom shop just for a different color? somones gotta talk with the people at fender and just have a standard upcharge for a different color, i mean they probly would sell A TON more guitars if people could actuly chose what color they got it in. How does the new "metalic blue" or whatever on the new am. series look? is it just like midnight blue where is not really a blue at all or is it a real simular color to lake placid blue?

    Well.... I think that if you care that much about the colour of the bass, then you deserve to get ripped off! ;)
