    There's the Squier Standard in a Walnut stain. I think they were discontinued but there are always some on Ebay.

    some older peavey us basses came in a mahogany (foundation, patriot, etc) and there were also some koa models coming out of us peavey in the 90s, mostly unity series and dyna unity series basses.

    i have an ash ibanez blazer p bass copy, in "traditional violin" finish, and it is beautiful, dark cherry inside, but shines brilliantly in daylight

    Those old Ibanez' from the late 70's - mid 80's had a nice finish like that.

    i was looking through ebay and those are really expensive bass guitars
  9. Find a Matsumoku Vantage. They're cheap.

    Also, the Squiers still go for under $200 used, if you can find them.
    The Peavey Grind series are a nice colour, too.

    Here's one of my more recent acquisitions. It's a 1985 Peavey Patriot in the optional Mahogany finish. I found it online at a Guitar Center in Syracuse, NY for only $99.95!

    It's the dark red one in the middle........

    Very true. Ebay often has one or the other every now and then. Not too long ago Guitar Center's used database had a five-string Precision in the same color.

    I've wanted one for a couple of years now, so I recently bought the Jazz bass version as a birthday present to myself. Izz verra nizzze! ;) I plan on modding the crap out of it, starting with the electronics. Not that there's anything wrong with it's stock electronics, but I'm feeling…experimental, and I want to use it to explore different configurations. Specifically, I want to see how a Master-Volume/Blend/TBX-Tone-Circuit config works with an SD Quarter Pounder (neck) and a Hot (bridge) pickup go together. Wish me luck!
  17. With apologies to those who have seen her. Sorry couldn't resist.....

    I built this custom, The HoseDragger, from some mahogany and koa that was sitting in a scrap pile in my shop. It's my only natural bass. I love it..
  19. Heres my old Sei Bass Singlecut fretless.

    Macassar ebony facings front and rear, with a Macassar ebony fingerboard too.
