    A friend on mine knows a guy who might be selling an American made Active Fender P bass. I have not seen the bass, yet. This is how my friend described it, "discontinued color ... (its white, but the woodgrain shows through the white)."

    Any idea what the heck he's talking about?
    What year(s) was this color available?

    Fender's been changing their color options like crazy lately. In the MIM line alone there have been three different blues in probably the past four or five years.

    And, yes, it sounds like your friend is describing White Blonde. ;)

    That color is absolutely beautiful. They usually pair that paint job with a bold grain Ash underneath, creating a very nice effect.
