    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 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.

    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.
