    I like my black one. A red one would look good too. What are the color options?

  5. I used to own a Agave Blue P-bass...it was a really cool colour.
    I also had a Fender Strat in Midnight Wine...another really cool colour.
    White is cool too.

    When it was available, Lake Placid Blue.

    The Blue Agave is really nice so is the Sage Green Metallic.

    Too bad the MIM Fender's don't come with a maple fretboard. If it did, black with a black pickguard.

    But of the color options available, I'd get a White one & put a Tortoise(vintage look) or a Mirrored pickguard on it.

    Most of the paints that they use these days don't yellow like the old nitro paints. I would think that if the bass was exposed to alot of smoke then maybe.

    Me, I'm partial to sunbursts and candy apple red. :bassist:
