Here's my new '13 American Std. P5 and case. When the manager showed up and asked the sales guy "you sure that's the right case?" then proceeded to look around in the back, I was sure that he was going to downgrade me to one of those trad hard shell cases, but he came back with one that included the case candy. I put flats on this, and pretty much can't put it down for love of the classic tone I'm getting from my B15N and SVT tubers! Thanks to all the help from the TBers who contributed to the threads I posted re. maple/rosewood, and which bass for a classic tone? before I pulled the trigger on this.
