    Not my first choice of color but hot nonetheless :D I actually love the contrast between the back wood and the purple top!
     
  3. That purple looks great on my computer screen. I can only imagine how it looks in person.

    It's quilt maple on mahogany. all wenge neck f/board.
     
  5. Have you had this for a while? I think I remember seeing a purple Gecko fiver on TB somewhat recently.

    Great looking bass either way though, I have a warmoth deluxe 5 J-bass and love the quality of the parts. Love the contrast of the purple and the mahogany.

    I paid 1100 for it and then i changed the electronics to barts (from emg) and aguilar preamp (from emg) that was another 300. plays mint. very easy. great action, nice b string. a little bright sounding (due to the all wenge neck?)
    it's a nice top, and i dig purple so...........

    Really neat man! :) i've been wanting a Gecko ever since i saw one for the first time!!
    hmm.....that's not a high price for bass like that!
    Maybe i should quit buying so much junk for a while and save the money for one of thos beauties :)

    LOVE that top. That purple is killer!

    I would've had the back and sides painted black, but I agree with Slava, the purple + mahogany looks fine. :)
