I've just recently purchased a USA P Bass from eBay. It was listed by the seller as being a 1999 model and in 'Shoreline Gold'. However after receiving I'm not 100% sure it is Shoreline Gold - I don't know whether Fender were doing this colour as an option on the American Standard P Bass in 1999? Is it more likely to be Inca Silver? Also, looking at the serial number it may actually be a 1998 model.

I wonder if anybody could have a look at the pics below of the bass and its serial number and give me a definitive answer on its colour and year of manufacture? Much appreciated!

I don't know in what year Fender came with "Blizzard Pearl" but this color blends a lot with its surrounding. Good luck.

That is definitely not Shoreline Gold. Shoreline Gold (44) can be seen below.
I know Shoreline Gold was available around 2006 to 2007. I'm not sure when
it was available on P Basses prior to that. In 2006, it replaced Chrome
Silver (91) which was available on American Series up to around 2006 (not
sure when it was introduced). The Shoreline Gold was only around one to two
years when the American Series line was replaced by the American Standard
which did not offer Shoreline Gold.

The seller may have mistaken it for Shoreline Gold from the Fender color chart
that makes gold look like silver (see below).

I've noticed that about Shoreline Gold in some pics. It seems to a somewhat washed out shade of gold, and in some pics does indeed look like silver.

Guys, thanks for all the feedback so far. I'm now thinking it is Inca Silver, which seems to be a colour Fender were doing for American Standards in 1999. I've seem a few pics of Inca Silver Jazz Basses online and it looks similar - silver with a bit of a greenish tint to it?

Anyhow, I think the guy selling me it possibly got it wrong with describing it as Shoreline Gold. No worries, because I do like the colour and finish anyway, but I was curious about just what colour it was. It's normally very obvious with Fender colours what something is!

After looking at other forums for silver basses, I'm now pretty sure that this is indeed Inca Silver. It gets a kind of green tinge in certain lights. I've now put a shiny new black pickguard on it (I never really liked white ones) and I've upgraded the bridge to one of the newer Fender high mass vintage bridges and it's great! These bridges are superb and together with Rotosound Swing Bass 66 strings (strung thru body) I have on it gives it such a great clarity of tone, with lots of P Bass growl! Would highly recommend getting a new USA P Bass or Jazz with one of these new bridges. Anyway, here it is:
