    That medium blue color is found on Roto nickels, I believe. You're in Europe, so that is very likely.

    Best string silk color, imo.

    Or, should that be "colour"?

    Thanks Vinnie6!

    It's a great sounding bass too.
    I did add a soundclip of a song i've been working on for a saxophone-player to make a new arrangement.
    I did use my "new" bass for it...
