    I mentioned in another thread that I was thinking of buying the American Standard P-bass to match my American Standard Jazz. Same series, same finish. I played it for a long time today and with different strings, it will work nicely.

    The shop had it tagged at $829.00 without a case. They offered it to me for $750.00 with a Fender Deluxe shaped case.

    I hope to have it by next weekend.

    I'm thinking of putting the BA2 bridges on both of them.

    This is the finish. Blonde with Ash wood grain bleeding thru.

  3. I have the MIA P-Bass ('97 model) and I love it, it has unmistakeable tone and is very comforatble for me to play. Luckily, I got it used (and abused) for $300 w/case and like I said earlier, I love it. Mine is the alder bodied version though. I did replace the pickguard though, just so it would look cooler. Good luck!

    Very nice J bass, I have one just like it. I put a tortoise guard on it to dress it up a bit.

    FYI, the BadAss II bridge with it's 5 screw mounting is not a direct replacement for the Fender AS bridge which has a 3 screw mount (screws in different places than the BAII except for the middle one).
