    Just got home from an exciting day. I just pulled the trigger on a new Am. Standard Precision Bass. Its Olympic White, Tort, with a maple neck. I didn't intend to buy it but I played it, and I couldn't resist.

    I got it for $900 out the door. I'll put pictures up on wednesday. I told the shop to keep it till then because I need to study for my midterms and if I get it, well... you can forget about that.

    Still trying to figure out what strings to slap on her. I was thinking LaBella flats, but I'm probably going to yank the frets out first.:rollno: Suggestions?

    Answer: Tort doesnt look good on everything.

    I like it on black, but I'm very picky.
  12. Tort. Look good on everything.

    I, for iinstance, am not a fan of tortoise pg + maple fretboard. Unless the body is finished in Mocca. Yes, I´m a nerd. :D
