The only reason why I ain't got it it's because my G&Ls are "carved top" ones, so ash bodies with carved maple tops. Glossy, the L2000, satin finished, the L2500, and rosewood fingerboard for these were the only options available
But I do like blueburst a lot (and american greenburst too, yet can't afford it) being it with both rosewood and/or maple fingerboard
IMHO that's the best lookin' finish (as I said, together with american greenburst) I just physically prefered carved tops
I like blueburst and had one for a while. I wouldn't call them or any other bass elegant though.
Personally I don't like many burst finishes, they just look cheap to me.
I prefer solid colors/stains.
I just don't think of basses as being elegant. Some are better look than others but to me elegance is more appropriate for describing something like the inside of a mansion, the lobby of a high end hotel, etc. I think you and I probably feel the same way about finishes on basses. We just use different words to describe them.
I think blue and greenburst finishes are pretty awful. If they are over a quilted top and the bass has gold hardware then you have the unholy grail.
Bueburst is one of my favorite finishes. As has been posted by others, "elegant" isn't an adjective I usually apply to any bass.
Exactly. You just nailed it!
I don't think I would use the word "elegant," but I love the blue burst finish on my G&L Comanche.
Ok, till now, ones want to puke on it, once loves it, but none says it´s elegant.....
If I ware a suit and play it???
if it looks like a blue bengal tiger yes, otherwise maybe not
I love blueburst on almost any bass, so I'd say yes.
like with a flame maple top?
I think blueburst is absolutely hideous. Does that mean you shouldn't play one? Absolutely not...
I had one and didn't care for how it looked. A big part of that is the no pickguard thing. Great playing and sounding basses though.
Never been a fan of that color.
ymmv of course
