    Black/Maple. Its the best color combo ever used on stringed instruments.

    Why is that? Seems like a pretty efficient way to get a public opinion.

    Well, my .02 cents.
    I like them both for different reasons, but really would like to see what different perspectives do to each look, i.e. stage lighting, and dare I say what clothes you're wearing while holding it.
    The photos aren't even using the same background, and sitting on stand, or at least propped up with good neutral background can have an effect. But just laying on the floor...meh.
    Sorry, no vote.

    And then we are shown the the actual contestants? Why not just show us the actual contestants and count the high fives for each?

    I am curious what make the B "tuxedo". Was it just a changed pickup or something else? IMO they are both black and maple.

    I like 'em both, for different reasons, and different performances/audiences.

    I don't know why it is a tuxedo either, when I think of a tuxedo bass I think of a black bass with a white pick guard. But either way, he is just trying to figure out which of the two people like best.

    Tuxedo is black & white.
    I cant imagine black pearloid working with any color. Maybe all black pearloid ala an antigua Fender.

    I've never heard it termed "Tuxedo" but it fits!
    Guess how I voted?

    I don't care for the knobs on either one.

    Whatever the poll question, mother of toilet seat is never the answer.

    yeah,the gold knobs and p/g screws were kinda odd on the "Tux", seemed unmatching. Black, silver or white seem the reasonable options that late in the attire.

    This, coming from the guy with BONGO in his name? ;)

    The MM commonly referred to as the "Toilet Seat" Bass?
