Everyone seems to think this bass is the bee's knees, but I'm curious as to whether or not more people would buy this bass if it were offered in more than just black, black black. Somebody said this was one of Fender's best sellers... maybe they would sell even more if you could pick a different color. When I was shopping for a bass a while back, this one was an option, however, I could not get past that it was only offered in one of the few finishes that I absolutely do not like. (Black w/maple board) If it were offered in anything else, I might have considered it more strongly. Shallow? I don't really care. If I'm going to shell out money for a bass, it's got to play, look, and feel just like I want it. What do you think? Would you have payed for an Olympic White Geddy Lee? Maybe a Sunburst? Sherwood Green?!
