    Hey, I have an oly Pbass. I like a lil bit yellow on that bass. So, if I smoke cigarettes on that, will it ever yellowing?

    Probably not the way you want plus cigarettes will kill you. Our guitar player has a strat that I assumed was yellow, it started off Olympic white many years ago but it yellowed magnificently.
    Just play and enjoy and when it has enough miles on the clock it will be yellow.

    Yes, but it will take many, many cigarettes. But! That kind of yellowing can damage electronics.

    Plus it smells bad. Do you really want your bass to reek of ashtray?

    Leave it in direct sunlight. My 2015 arctic white p bass has changes a tiny bit in color, but under the pickguard the color is still original (otherwise I wouldn't have noticed any change, since it is very minor).

  5. Sunlight is indeed the answer, although it depends on the clear coat used. Some yellow more than others.
