    I see a lot of threads started about bass color schemes.
    My favorite style basses are typically all black basses. Rosewood or ebony fretboards, painted necks, painted headstocks, black hardware, etc. The more black the bass has on it, the better.

    Posting pics of basses with black paint with metal flakes, transparent black finish, maple necks, natural headstocks and chrome/gold hardware is cool too.

    ****************PLEASE NO MAPLE FINGERBOARDS*****************

    Join the dark side! Post your pics!

    Here are a some of my basses.

    I can't agree more!!! The blacker the bass the more I like it. Give me a week or so and I will post pics of a [black] bass I got coming in with my black Bat (Brownsville).

    Excuse the carpet. I took these the same day we tore down a covered deck. I wanted to get a pic in the new (better) light, and didn't think to vacuum. Just as I have not thought to take some more pictures after I have vacuumed since. So...yeah.

    Here are some shots of my Status Stealth 6 string. It's basically black/grey, since it has a carbon fibre weave.

    Here I am with my Stingray, wearing all black!

    I swear I wasn't giving the photographer the bird, although some folks who know me wouldn't believe that!

    I've got 2 questions:

    1. Is that a trremolo bridge I see on that?

    2. Is it for sale? :eek:
