    I'm so happy right now! I JUST got off the phone, i ordered a new bass. This will be my 2nd bass. And it's my birthday tomorrow!

    It's a Fender Fretless Standard Jazz. I have no idea with the specs, but I decided to go with the colour white. Anyone have pics by any chance? of a White Jazz bass?

    I can't wait!! :hyper: :hyper:

    Bad News :( They didn't have white in stock. So I went with the good old trusty black. Maybe it's good, maybe it's bad. Who knows?

    Thanks for all the happy b-days :D

    Hey man, don't sweat it! Black on black looks nice, and white on black is your classic Geddy.

    I don't have three black basses for nothing. They're great for any occasion. :)

    Oh there will be tons of pics of this! I'm ordering a tort pickguard, sorry for that guy, but my bass will look identical to his, except it's missing a thumb rest and...frets :p

    MAYBE the neck pickup cover. But who knows! I'm excited!
     
  11. I've never seen a white MM before. Does it still have the black gaurd/plate?
     
  12. white is classy. happy birthday.

    I think black Js look really cool, even though my Standard Jazz is white. Think hard on that pickguard, and happy birthday! MIM Jazzes can be real nice basses.
