    A couple people have mentioned wanting to see this since I got it painted... The bass is not 100% complete yet, but it still looks cool enough to snap some photos. I bought this MIJ Fender jazz w/ Allparts lined fretless neck a while ago and sent it to my buddy who goes by StreetScenes on TB. This was a 2 bass project (the other is waiting on an electronics fix). I asked Sean to paint it like the yellow and chrome Oregon Ducks helmets... As many of you know, I am an Oregon alumni and HUGE Ducks football fan... Here are the results:

    I think that a green body with a matching headstock and
    yellow strings and a chrome pickguard would look equally as great. And what about the Oregon "O" inlayed in pearl on 12th?

    It's also a little more difficult to capture the color because of all the sparkle he put in it, but its definitely bright yellow. I think he used Mini Cooper yellow and some chrome yellow mixed to get it there. It's pretty much the exact same color as the yellow Ducks helmets.

    :D

    There's no such thing as an ugly jazz bass. However, I am partial to Black & Gold and Cardinal Red.
