Awesome concept for new build

    So I recently bought a Yamaha ERB070 bass and neck (it has not been delivered yet) and plan on putting together a bass using the parts this summer.

    My idea is to paint the body with purple metallic aerosol from Guitar Reranch. Then I would use all black hardware to make a fully black and purple bass which would then be named something like "Raven", "The Raven", or maybe even "Nevermore". I live in Maryland, so purple and black are essentially my favorite colors. The image below is close to my idea, but all the chrome hardware would be black.

    One question I have is whether there are any black strings that would play well enough on a P bass to make it worth continuing the concept. Any thoughts on the concept are welcome. This is my first build so I am excited for it!

    Yes, there are black strings that play well.

    I don't see how different colors is a "concept" though. :confused:
