is there something i'm missing? i would love a nice p bass with the walnut finish like the '72 basses had, i believe it was called walnut anyways, i've also heard it called mocha. some web searching has led me to believe that a certain squier jazz bass is the only bass currently being produced in that color. i could buy one and upgrade pickups and such, but i wish i didn't have to. speaking of replacing pickups, i just picked this bass up for $150 because the pickups are ruined and the pickguard is warped. i dropped some quarter pounders in it and ordered a black pickguard yesterday. here's the picture i took just after buying. i will definitely post a picture once i get the new pickguard put on. i haven't seen that particular shade of yellow with a black pickguard before, you guys think it will look alright? i haven't posted in a while but my band's EP is coming out next month, if you want a copy for free since we're talkbass friends, give me your email address and i will email it to everyone when it is out.
