I picked up a copy of the 2002 Frontline from my shop today, and it looks stunning. Turning to the bass section (naturally) I was kind of confused at the spec chart on p172. It lists the standard series basses as having alder bodies. I had heard that the standard series uses poplar. Is this another one of the changes to the standard series? Also, I had bought a new J bass in January. It has the vintage style black knobs and pickups that humbuck when both are turned up evenly. Would this mean I have an alder body? Any help clarifying would be appreciated.
