    cool... and it's always fun to change bit of color easily on your bass it can make the GAS pass for a time.. :D

    oh yeah, black would look NICE on that...as would a black bridge and black control plate thingie, and if you could find them, yellow knobs that match the body color....

    congrats on the bass, I also like the tele style headstock...

  6. wow i've always hated those in the black that i see them in everywhere but that creamish color looks really nice on that bass

    great bass man. post a review soon

    Iv got a black one as well, but i think this one deffinately looks cooler and more interesting to look at. Im deffinately going to look into the black scratchplate because that then would like class :D every MD bass I have seen that is owned by someone is 90% black and 10% sunburst It appears im one of the very few that have the vintage white!!!which is always good. thanks for the replies so far, ill be picking it up tomorrow evening(uk time) so ill post up how it plays etc :D

    mmm, that looks schweat, +1 for the black pickguard
  9. Yea, if you were to go with a black PG, control plate and possibly bridge tuners, that would be one very unique and GAS indusing Dirnt. I've always liked those basses, just dont like the neck.

    well, i am back home with my new bass:bassist: and its great. There are actually a lot of differences from each bass.

    The vintage white has a better Bad Ass2 bridge, there are 4 slots cut into each saddle unlike my other one

    The pickguard is 3ply and not 1ply like my black one

    The maple is lighter on the vintage white

    There is less lacquer(spelling?) on the white one

    The white one has a softer fretboard

    Conclusion : The vintage white bass is class, so is the black but im currently very happy:D:hyper: :hyper: :hyper: :hyper:

    I would play through my amp but its late:(

    thats cool ill post it up,

    They both cost £550 and that was including a free strap for both. They are meant to sell for around £600 so £550 is good i reckon. The vintage white actually is a bit whiter in real life, either way still looks cool.
  15. Cool colour!

    Nice bass, and enjoy :)

    woa.. didn't tought i would like the white better.. looks realy cool in black too.. but i think the space between the guard and the pups looks smaller on the white one..

    the coolest things would be a guard full of stickers ;)
    and change between the white, the black, and the stickered one each week :D
