    I will keep both.

    And will change the paint on white VM p to Seafoam Green and the Amber P to white blonde.

    My amber one has satin/non-glossy neck and fingerboard. I'd actually prefer glossy but that's just me! I don't remember what the original pickup was - I have a Fender PV63 in it now.

    There's a story here...

    Initially, white. Seeing Nick's picture made me swing amber. That's tough.

    Keep the amber one. Reason: I don't really like the whole black and white look plus I'm a maple guy.

    I'm always happy to be bad influence :laugh: My one really does have a nice texture & subtle quilt which shows up well in the right light. The amber finish does a good impression of a nicely aged '70s natural ash body (ref - the '74 J next to it!)...mercifully without the weight.

    Throw the rosewood neck on the amber body and keep that. That would be my solution! Love amber and more natural wood finish basses, love rosewood fingerboards...

    The white one, hands down. That's the best bass ever. I have MIJ 70's reissue

  10. I really like natural basses and not a fan of white basses. Personal opinion so an easy choice for me. But I do prefer rosewood necks so I say keep the amber and swap the necks

    I'd keep the natural one.. I prefer natural wood or sunburst over painted basses.

    I’m not feeling the baby poop yellow. Keep the white one.

    I would pay more than the original list price for the amber one, if there was ever one within buying range. It is the ultimate P-bass to me and I kick myself every day for not buying one when they were around new. (There were reasons.)

    Me as well! I had one but stupidly let it go. I have a Fender Cabonita pickup here just waiting for one of those to wander back into my life :)

    Amber - natural, like kind of that more than white color.
