(x-post) I realize this is all personal opinion, but just thought I would ask... of the finishes in the poll, which is best? If you have other ideas, you may suggest those also. Thinking of taking your advice and getting one really nice bass. Won't be anytime soon, but we can all dream. It will have either Fralin or Nordstrand Jazz pickups and an OBP1 (with series/parallel and active/passive) I think this is: I plan on buying a nice bass version 15.0 at this point oh well, I have just in the past few months paid down debt enough to where I thought this might be a reality someday.
