    Hi all,

    Trying to choose between these two p basses - American Original 60s and Vintera 50s. Absolutely love the vintage looks of the Vintera, as well as the aluminium pickguard and poly finish (prefer that to nitro). The reworked pickup is great too. On the other hand I do prefer rosewood fretboards, and the AO also has taller frets. Obviously the price difference is quite large too!

    I really love both, and they've each got their own merits, but I really can't decide at all.

    Would love a second opinion, so what would you go for if you could and why?

    Sound like you love both actually. How about the combination of AO and Vintera = CS59 ?
