  2. Antiqua. It was a color Fender offered in the 70's. They couldn't give them away. Nobody wanted them.

    Warmoth does offer that color as an option. Check their website.

    What! Antigua is sweet!
     
  4. Most Antiqua basses/guitars hung on the hook at music stores until they had to mark them down to sell them. They just weren't popular. People generally didn't want an olive/gray/white bass. You couldn't change the pickguard because nothing looked good on it. Just like today, sunburst/black/natural were popular and antiqua was kind of the bastard child. :D
