    Hey guys,
    Getting ready to order my first bass and I'm looking at the Fender Standard Jazz Bass. I just had a simple question about the colors I'm sure some of you can anwser.

    I'm looking at this at American Musical, the arctic white.
    I really like the color of the bass in this picture.

    But then I've seen other arctic white fenders that look like this
    They seem to have more of a creamy look to them.

    If I order this one from American Musical what color am I gonna end up with?

    Nope, the second pic is more accurate. They are kinda creamy.

    I agree. They aren't pure white. They are more cream compared to the pickguard, if the pickguard is white.

    They're creamy in color. Swap out the white pickguard for a black and it's nice as anything.
