    Hello! I've been reading a lot of posts on TB but didn't have anything worth posting myself until now. I was given this new Fender Standard P Bass in Ocean Turquoise by my wonderful fiance - totally unexpected surprise!!! I'm marrying quite the perfect lady (IMO):)! Standard Fender MIM specs, just limited edition color (pic doesn't do it justice). Sounds and plays great :bassist:. Maple fret board is something different for me - should complete my collection (maybe);).
    Thanks for letting me share the news!
    Cheers! IMAG0754.jpg IMAG0757.jpg

    Keepers, both... haven't ever seen this color, prior to signing on to TB, and this is the second one I've seen, in as many days...

    Welcome to Talkbass, where every new bass is “the best bass I’ve ever played!”
    Seriously though, just bought a P bass myself but damn, that looks great, especially with the black pickguard and maple fretboard...and I’m not just saying it because my new Precicion is blue with a black pickguard and maple fretboard, either!

    Thanks! It has a Tort Shell guard actually, but is a nice dark color. I dig the blue w/black p guard look as well.

    You know, I should’ve realized that...since I’ve seen several posts with the same bass and told other members that the tort looked good on their basses!

    Complete your collection, that's a good one.
    I was drooling over this very bass on FB Bass Gear page this week.
    Congratulations, very nice!
