    I'm ordering an Alleva Coppolo and I realize they can custom match colors. I'd really like to have something special in the way of a color that you don't see that much and I'm considering some shade of brown.

    If anyone has a shot of a brown bass, I'd love to see them. I'm thinking something like those "walnut" colored basses from the past.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    I don't have the pic but there was this younger kid endorsing the Aguilar Chocolate Brown line with a pretty cool brown P-bass in a Bass Player magazine ad.

    Some faux rosewood wipe-on junk from Home Depot. I think it was a Minwax product:

    thanks everyone.
    I'm thinking of a solid finish, ala the musicman.

    lol, never thought of it that way but you are right.
    I think I'm liking the solid finish walnut with maple board a little better than with rosewood.
    Thanks for posting the beautiful brown bass porn everyone. ME LIKEY.
    hell yeah. Solid brown with metal flake. The alleva-coppolo logo would look to sweet over brown metal flake!

    That is beautiful! I've been pondering a carvin kit and just such a finish. I like the tone of alder, but I would like to have a brown bass. If you happen to recall the product name, let me know.

    Any other finishing products used on that bass besides the one you mentioned?

    Wipe-on poly. I think it was another Minwax product...

    It started out as 'bing cherry' with a tung oil finish, but the tung oil wasn't durable enuff and began to wear off where I rest my thumb.

    I sanded it all down and went with the rosewood/poly combo on the second try. I think the bing cherry looks better, but it was a pain-in-the-ass to work with. The 'rosewood' junk couldn't have been easier:
