I have one the same era - its Olympic White - mine has aged a little and gone a touch creamier - in fact the pick up covers have aged loads and are a very dark cream now - that's sunlight for you!

Most white Jaguar reissues are Olympic White. It doesn't even look particularly aged/yellowed to my eyes - that looks like stock olympic white. As for your VM, I think they just don't use the same type of white as the American or Japanese Fenders do, and unfortunately it doesn't really blend too well with other aged plastic parts.

Now that Musicmaster Bass (first pic), on the other hand... that's some vintage yellowing :)
Yeah it’s just a typical OW and I don’t really see any yellowing either

I just heard Omni for the first time, and downloaded their two albums. Good stuff!
