    So I had another bass that just was not speaking to me. I wanted to love it but didn't feel the connection to her. Weird I know but that is how I am. So i started looking for curiosity. And happened upon this at my local guitar store. A 2014 Fender American Standard P Bass in Jade Metallic.

    I started to play this bass and instantly felt a connection. Everything was perfect. The neck, string height and spacing. Felt great. So I talked to the owner and walked out the store with it. Anyways here it is. I may look at new pickguards to add a little customization to it. Know places that have them and are affordable and good quality?

    Nice! There is a place folks order pickguards from, although I can't remember it. Pickguardian or something.

    I wanna see the rest of that collection hiding in the background!

    Sorry those ones were at the music store. Those are not mine. I wish though.

    I've always liked the look of white pearloid pickguards with Jade Green Metallic, and you can order a factory Fender one from eBay or straight from Fender.

    Congrats, and Enjoy!

    Wonderful looking bass! Congrats!

    And another vote for Pickguardian - they've done a few for me over the years & quality was always top notch.

    Love the colour.......Pbass with a maple neck is an easy sell on me! Enjoy. Glad that it made the purchase easy for you.

    Beautiful color and love the maple board!
    I’ve used Pickguard for my P and it was a perfect fit/finish.

    Haha. If you are ever in Michigan, need to visit Motor City Guitar and talk to Marty. They are a great group of fellas that know their stuff.

    Basically I traded another guitar for this one....straight up. So it definitely was a great deal

    With the first two guitars in that collection being left-handed (the second one a fireglo Rick), it was pretty clear that this was unlikely to be the OP's collection. Unless he happens to have a glass display case full of effects in his house.

    20180722_133744.jpg Here's how She'd look with a black pickguard, DR Black Beauties, and GZR, EMG's. I tried a black tortie. Didn't like it. Still have it. Since putting the EMG's in, I may consider a MATTE Black, 3 ply pickguard...
    Nice bass, BTW, I know!!! Mine is also a '14. :D
