    Caprice Bass Natural Body Ash Alder

    If I order a Cutlass or Caprice in the color natural, do I get an Alder Body (as in the specs) or an Ash Body (as in the pics)?

    Thanks again

    I'm not sure you can order that color, this is from the website:
    Black, Ivory White, Diamond Blue, Heritage Tobacco Burst

    Oddly enough, the Caprice on the website is clear gloss over ash, so maybe it's available?

    New Coral Red and Natural finishes were announced for Cutlass and Caprice basses at NAMM. They're expected to be available soon.

    Hi Bert, if I'm not mistaken the only body wood they come in is Alder, regardless of finish.

    I guess you are lucky guy and the natural option comes in ash as shown in the website, just as all natural Fender instruments come. I can not recall that I have ever noticed a natural maple/alder guitar or bass. I am looking forward to hear sound samples from the clear Caprice and Cutlass and can imagine that they sound pretty 70s like.
