    EDIT: SO here's the thing, I've been thinking of doing a red tort pg on it but let me see pics of other black n maple basses with some unique pg colors (blue pearl, gold whatever) Thanks!

    So my guitar player wanted to go to GC on the 4th to pick up some cables and other incidentals. While he's walking around, I head over to the basses and start chatting with the sales guy, next thing I know I come walking out with this in my hands.

    It's my first American-made Fender and it is sweet!! Super-low but clean action.

    As far as people's opinions of GC i find the service hit or miss, this was definitely a home-run, the guy was awesome. Very knowledgeable and easy to talk too, not to mention he took the time to make sure everything was setup right and cleaned.

    I feel your joy, and my pain!
    Walked in to GC on Friday, left with an Acoustic B200 amp (planned purchase).
    Walked in to GC on Sunday, left with my SECOND MIA P-Bass (unplanned purchase).
    Rationalization: The stock market is tanking; I'm investing in future-vintage instruments.

    Hahaha, I used the same "investment" rationale on my squeeze on why I spent $1084 instead of $384 on the mexi-made. (She doesn't know the difference beyond the price, but she will learn) As for the black pearl, I like it... but it's not quite right for me. Now the darkstar... there's an idea lol

    Black-on-black is a great look for P-basses, esp. with a maple neck! My guitarist has a black on black Tele w/ cream binding; very nice! congrats on the new bass!

    Yeah, I also think a black pickguard would be nice on that one.
