  1. Dose one play/sound better to you? I am partial to RW fingerboards myself, so I would keep the white one. Ask yourself which one feels better....

    If talking only aesthetics, I'd swap necks and keep the amber/rosewood version.

    White, looks more punk to me, even if Sid Vicious couldn't play to save his life.

    Was thinking the same: change the neck, drop the white...

    I would keep the amber one because I had one and regret letting it go...

  6. I'm always partial to a maple board... Just love the way they look! Can I swap the necks and keep the white one? :whistle:

    Strangely, I'd swap necks and keep the white/maple. Add a mint pickguard...
    Actually, if you swapped necks it would really be a tighter decision. Both would benefit from the other neck.

    … a criteria I have never considered before, but maybe a reason to keep in itself … kind of in the category of:

    … "Does this bass make my butt look big?"

    … sorry, couldn't help myself ;)

  10. The amber BUT first I'd want to see the grain match. I know it won't be close to boutique-level, but I also don't want it to be noticably heinous.

    I’d keep the white and swap for the maple board and then tort guard. Heaven in my book.

    You know whats funny...I am surprised that Squier never offered the VM series in 3 tsb with a FRETTED FB. They only made the fretless one...Maybe they knew it would sell out everything else lol

    Geez I should have had a "swap neck" option in the poll..that probably would have been the winner
  18. Don't ask me why but I've never liked Oly white on a P Bass. I voted for the Amber/Maple.

  19. I have the amber with maple neck. Vintage Modified. Fender original '62 pups, perfect setup. So satisfying to play, hear and see. Compares to any Fender anyware. Aside from it I have 3 white/maple Precisions. For gigs or rehearsals, I like to have choices.

    Me too. All my basses have some visible evidence that they're made of wood. So the white is out. And I'm not a fan of maple necks.
