    I will always vote for the natural and maple with a black pg over just about anything. It just looks right to me.

    Purely based on looks, I'd keep the amber.

    I suggest he buy a red one. It would look good with those two.
    My late wife told me I am not allowed to sell any more basses. I still honor her wish. She did not say I couldn't buy more basses.

  4. Definitely the Amber. I just picked up a used one and it's beautiful. Very interesting grain patterns. Sounds great too with the DD pickups. It's a rock machine that is a close rival to my Fender American Standard P.

    I'd keep the maple in case I needed it to tour overseas. Just wouldn't want to chance getting my rosewood confiscated.

    The classic look of a white P with black scratchplate can be hard to resist, but the amber has some pop to it that made me vote for it.

  9. Also, I find that most pics on the internet don't do the amber ones justice.

    Rosewood is now a cities endangered wood. So technically custom can give a hard time with an instrument with rosewood with documentation. Whereas maple is not cites listed.

  13. No fault of the other, but the white/rosewood one was my pick, I just like rosewood necks myself.

    I recently trade a Cort for the White P. It's a really awesome bass. Its made of basswood, so its a light axe. I was very sceptical of the wood, but i am really happy, it's sounds like a p bass and the weigth its a good factor to consider!

    I dont dig the look that much, but im gonna buy a tort and it going to look awesome, maybe with ashtrays

    I think the Amber looks just ok to me. I've always liked that 70s-derived black on white look. I've been on a maple kick lately, but I'm not so fond of the light maple with the amber for some reason.

    I’d be tempted to swap necks and keep the amber.... both nice looking basses. Do you gravitate towards one playing wise? Sometimes there subtle differences that make one bass a slightly better player, if so keep that one.

    I have been on a White kick ever since I got my V7 (white/tort/rosewood)
    But I do have a Nat Jazz with a maple neck too and I would choose to keep both

    Interesting..not that I have ever traveled by plane for a gig
    I do like both but if it makes any sense, the white looks so much bigger on me, and I am a small guy, whereas the amber looks just right..Maybe?
