    This is one of the more outrageous (sp?) wood grains I've seen on a bass...

    Y'know, I love exotic wood tops, but that one's a little too much even for me.

    Too much for me. But I think it might look nice if it had a tobacco or black sunburst out to the edges.

  16. I think it's absolutely beautiful, definitely one of the most interesting tops I've ever seen, I'm a huge fan of the uniqueness that can only be found in natural wood grain.
