    Both the body and neck are in great condition. I just painted the body this weekend so the paint is very fresh.

    [DEL]$225 [/DEL][DEL]$150 Shipped [/DEL]
    Neck Sold

    Body only $75 plus shipping

    The T40's not a perfect paint job, but it's not bad. Like Muziekschuur said it could use more clear or if I had the courage I really get on it with a buffer, but it's the first time I sprayed this brand of clear and I'd rather give it time to harden. It was test panel for me. At the shipped price I'm making nothing on it just passing it along. I may clean it up an post it on Ebay if nothing happens here.

    Thanks! I thought so a well. I now have three basses that color. Lol.

    Under light it really pops. It will look great with a black pickguard.

    Could have some more flakes in there for some extra sparkle.... But this bass will do just fine as is. Can't wait to see it being put together. This colour screams for gold hardware... Or will you black out the original hardware?

    Thanks...It's all about the light. These types of paints really come to life in the light.

    I was going with an all black look, but now it's on sales block

    Much much better photo. The sparkle is there. But I'd say it needs some more clear coats...

    That T40 heel is 2 7/16" wide, correct? I absolutely love that color on that body, The Jazz and MM

    My pre coffee measurements were 2 3/8 on the neck.

    Thanks for the compliment. Its a way for me to get some spray time in. I have a MM Sub that a think I'm going to paint a candy purple like my bike.

    Just wondering if you do the paint job yourself? I've got a body that need repainting. Just wondering how I can get that done.
