Yes, the basic VM P Bass has soft maple body, the other versions (PJ, etc.) seem to be agathis bodied. I'm wondering if anyone here has any knowledge of and/or experience with the maple-bodies model.<br /> <br /> Thank you.

mr.gibson, Guess I am confused as the spec's from the link you provided shows the body to be Agathis and the neck maple (typically hard rock maple).

Is that model even current and available?<br /> <br /> I don't see it on-line anywhere. I looks like the one included in the "new" Stop Dreaming Start Playing package.

"In the text is says" Features include a trans-finished soft maple body," :)"<br /> <br /> It's simple.The white body version is agathis,the trans amber version is soft maple.

Yep, it says that in the specs section. I just quoted from the overview description and really didn't see the difference in the specs.<br /> <br /> It's curious that they have different bodies for different color. I guess maple is better for transparency.
