    Am I wrong or has Fender discontinued the color Midnight Wine? I cant seem to find any new ones listed for sale. I hope not. Midnight Wine w/ a black/w/black pickguard is one of the most striking colors to me. :crying:
  2. Still listed on the Fender website under the Highway 1 color options.

    Hmm. Never cared much for midnight wine finish. I have a great '98 Am Std Jazz bass. Plays great. Sounds great. Several times I've given serious thought to either refinishing it or replacing the body. Its midnight wine. Yuck.

    Only Prince can make purple cool.
  6. I agree midnight wine is stunning
    heres one I just let go with a white pearl guard:


    at one point I did have the obligatory black on midnight wine look
    Not my bass BTW but a beautiful example of one

    and I still think at times the black / wine combo is better off on a P Bass over a Jazz:

    I had a midnight P-bass. Stripped it though.

    I wonder what other standard MIM colors Fender has discontinued over the years are?
  12. The Electron blue is an amazing color, as is the Sage Green. I'm glad I have one in each now.
