Basses you think would look good in paisley?

    As some of you know there are a few guitar builders/finishers out there right now who do custom color paisley finishes. What kinds of basses do you think would look good sporting a paisley finish? These 2 builders are offering a variety of colors to choose from. I think a G&L Semi Hollow ASAT or an Epiphone Jack Casady bass would look awesome in paisley. Who knows it could even work on a violin shaped body.

  9. I'd rock a paisley pickguard on a Fender style bass. That would be neat.

  12. HEHE....My Aunt bought me a paisley shirt in, like, 1967 for Christmas. She said she got it for me since it was apparent that I was going to be a "hippie" and I should "look" the part.

    I never wore it once. Why in God's name would I want to wear a paisley bass........??


    :D

    I think it could definitely work on the SG/EB3 style body. Please forgive the G#!t@r pic :p

    I was going to suggest Ric - but probably the 4005 instead of the 4001.

    I don't think anything looks good in paisley.

    Well, maybe on a Ric. You might as well do it on something where it can't hurt the looks.
