    Carrot. Err... orange.
  5. burnt apple, black cherry burst, or just plain natural.
  6. I voted blue.. I prefer how basses look with finishes on blueish tonalities.. if not natural..

    Hey, I don't see any pool comming:confused:
  7. I like black. It fits in all situations. I also like dark green and dark blue. Red is the one color I don't really like, but if it had a black pickguard on it, i could dig it.

    Natural is cool, but I'm not into sunburst.
  8. other. [natural(not sunburst) or sunset orange transparent]

    I voted others.

    Explanation: I love exotic wood grain, natural or transperant colors, especially dark transparent colors such as green or blue.

    Wood oil or clearcoat finish, please.
  12. Black is the only "color" that looks good at every occasion, IMO. A safe choice.
  13. A dark blue is nice...real dark blue

    i love green, on a quilt top
  15. My personal choice goes for gray/silver... Fender's Inca Silver and Ibanez's Gray Nickel (my old SR885), Grey Pewter (My actual EDB605) and Silver flat (EDA)... you get the idea, right?

    Black it's too "typical" and white too "soft" for my tastes ;)

  16. i voted for brown! i saw this really cool brown stingray once and i cant get it outa my mind. i guess if i voted for 'other' it'd be that transparant green that MM used to use.

    Natural or if it is a color transparent green or blue on a FMT.
  18. sunburst-type colors usually arent my thing, but i love the way a stingray 4 with burnt apple finish and a black pickguard looks. only $1000 more to go. yes im open to donations!:D ;)
  19. oiled wood .... is always my choice!!!!

    some painted or clearcoat finishes look decent, many people like shiny stuff.

    i like woody stuff. it reminds me of why a bass sounds like a bass.

    (yah yah, go on about your composites and graphites etc!!!!!)
