Have you ever bought a bass that sounded good, but because you didn't like the looks of it, didn't play it much? I am still in the hunt for a 5-string and want one that sounds and looks so pretty I can't let it sit for long before I want to pick it up and play it again. But I might not be able to have both looks and sound. I know sound is ultimately important, but what about looks. For example there is a Zon Sonus and a Lakland 55-02 on ebay now for good prices, but I think both are very ugly (metallic painted-and I like natural wood). How important are looks?
