    I've recently acquired a Pedulla Rapture with a badly damaged paint job, which I'm going to refinish. It's currently a cherry red color.

    I could go with a similar cherry red color, or I could go with a non-Pedulla color like seafoam green, which I think would look good on this bass.

    Your thoughts?
     
  2. Before I cast my vote, is seafoam green the only alternative you have in mind? Well, assuming carrot orange is a joke.

    Sherwood green would be sweet too.

    Seafoam and other Fender-centric colors usually look best on a Fender or Fender style instruments , IMO.

    I voted for Seafoam Green but I think that any of the colors in your list would look great. So would Burgandy Mist Metallic, with a vintage pearl pickguard and gold hardware...oh my! :D

    Pulcinella featured a metallic orange bass on his website that might make a great carrot tribute bass.

    Damn, that looks almost intentional with the decal, and awesome at that, I'd leave it...
     
  19. I'm sorry to say I agree with this man.
    The red looks great, and the decal next to all that mojo looks really natural.
