I think I was in the middle of typing up my post when you posted this. :lol:

So what do we think? I dig some of the J colors, but the biggest issue I had with my Am Pro P was the neck ('63 neck not comfy for me) and the poorly rounded frets. What's the expression? "Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me?"

Your post is better. More detailed hahah. I think they look good. I had my hands on a few Pro models. They were all stellar. Glad they’re doing the Jazz in Oly White, even though I’m all set there.

I like it however Fender can drive me crazy!

Why is the J bass offered in 4 colors and the P Bass only offered in 3 colors? I agree Olympic White is great and I like the Miami Blue however why not offer the Miami Blue on the P Bass like the J bass, Strat ect?

Underwhelming IMO.

To Bob's point about the limited color choice. Seems like a Fender marketing strategy to steer customers(especially us lefties) to the slightly higher end Mod Shop offerings if you want anything beyond the standard models.

A brand spanking new Fender bass does have a certain allure. I like the white P. If that was a PJ I would probably be won over. How much did the prices go up from the last model?

I believe the Am Pro I was $1499 new, so they've gone up $50. But you can get a demo Am Pro I right now at Sweetwater for $1169:
