    This is my current repainting project, on a TBC (The Bass Company) bass.

    Because, well, you never know when you might be playing in the woods on a hunt or commando raid.

    I don't know...

    You're going to have a hard time getting that to cut through the mix.

    I had a friend request that I paint his guitar camo... but I found some adhesive vinyl "wrap" camo sheets on the 'Bay that looked great, went on smooth and slick, and (best of all) were removeable.

    I always like the blue camo scheme used by Navy aggressor jets.

    That blue marbly one looks intriguing. What is that?

    Camo job is really nice- sorta like digital, but not: Perfect!
    That's the largest piece of turquoise, yet- Beautiful, w/black strings and Ebony(?) fretboard.

    The turquoise bass started with a body I bought on Ebay (Jon Hill) and then had the neck custom-made. I hired a graphic artist to do the turquoise stone look, which I then finished with lacquer. Yes, it's ebony fretboard.

    You should see it in person - even more spectacular than the pictures. The gold veins look 3D.

    I cannot comment on the camo one but damn that one on the right looks fantastic? I am assuming you did it yourself? Tell me more.
