    I notice in MusiciansFriend catalogs that some of the Fender basses have Olympic White as a color option and others have Arctic White as a color option. What's the difference? Does anyone know?

    Also, I'm new to the boards and I tried editing my avatar, but I don't seem to be able to.

    Hi there!

    I think it will be easier to show you the two whites. I prefer Olympic, myself.

    These are from the Fender website.

    Oly white is pretty much pure white. Arctic white is creamier, but still beautiful.

    I prefer Oly myself.
