Hi all There are many threads about rosewood/maple, colours, and pups. This one is specifically about the new 2012 models. I currently have: 2009 Precision 3TS/Rosewood 2011 Jazz 3TS/Rosewood (American Standards) I have played a fair few 2008-2011 Js and Ps, some of them fantastic, some of them pretty average. On the whole, the good ones have been stunning though. I was about to buy a matching P and J in early 2012, before the custom shop pups change. So, I put things off for some time, and now it seems the right time to look back into it. I would like a 2012 P and J. Totally overkill, yes, BUT, and this is the big BUT, I have shopped around for P and J boutique models, only to keep going back to the new American Standards which sound, IMO, exactly how a P and J should. How would you guys go about it? I am a huge fan of rosewood, in fact I only have one bass with a maple board. But, something is telling me to try a couple of maple boards this time. Will I regret it?! Who knows. They wont make that much difference I guess. Next is colour. Ive got 3TS, so the current colours I like are: Olympic White Jade Pearl Metallic What does the maple board look in the flesh with the olympic white? What does the jade pearl look like in the flesh? Cheers all....daft questions I know.
