    I lost 2 to gain this 1. Totally worth it. It's a 2008, Candy Cola, and in minimally mojo'd condition (couple of love taps). Everything is stock except the pickguard (first thing I replaced after purchase). Need to string it with some black beauties and she'll be ready to rock and roll. The kicker, I got it (w/OHSC) for $600 CAD.

    Very nice!
  5. I love the color combination! Candy Cola (much richer-looking than Candy Apple) + Blk PG + Rosewood = Yummy!

    $600 CAD? Wow!

    Killer deal on an awesome bass. Can't go wrong with a MIA Pbass.

    I occasionally wet the bed.
    Nice bass. I always buy second hand now. When I buy new basses I can't play them properly through the anxiety of giving them their first 'dink'

    The stock guard was white, I replaced it with the black guard (I don't like white pickguards on most basses). This has the HMV bridge so there's no need for the BAII. Nate's bass is also ever so slightly thinner at the nut. I can definitely see the resemblance though.
  12. Nonetheless, very nice bass. I agree: white pickguards only look good with white or black basses. Sunburst and white? YUCK YUCK YUCK

    Even then, I really only like white guards on early 50's style p-basses. And that's only some of the time. Meh, I'm just picky.
  14. I'm totally with you on this.

    When I got my Highway One Jazz in Sunburst, it came with a white PG, which looked so lame. I swapped it for a black one and what a difference!

    I just wish Fender would make black the default pickguard color for most of the colors they offer for their basses, only exceptions being the ones that already come with a tort guard.
