    Trying to organize myself for my next bass build, and it would really help is someone could do a quick photoshop work-up for me.

    Here's my specs:

    '51 style P-bass, body metal flake blue, pick guard red glitter.

    Here's the image I was able to slap together on my iPhone.

    Can someone do a quick photoshop job, so I can have a better look at the gaudy creation coming?

    This may help.

  2. This is a VERY quick photoshop effort. I must confess, I don't dig this combo much myself. However, it's YOUR bass, or at least it could be if you do it...

    Reminds me of an Italia bass with the sparkle on sparkle.
    Would be very patriotic with a white pickup and white powder-coated bridge and tuning pegs.

    Thanks for this.

    As it turns out, my trip to the lumberyard yielded a few boards that painting over would be a crime.

    Scored some Birdseye maple, walnut, flame maple and flame mahogany.

    So I'm shelving the sparkle idea for now.

    Sparkle finishes look best with a black pick guard in my opinion.
