    Ok call me an air head, But what color do you guys consider to be the coolest, I mean the coolest color for a fender bass?

    I'm stuck between Sunburst and Olympic white at the moment.

    natural. airhead.
    :p

    honestly i couldnt say. it depends on color contrast.
    pickguard color, maple or rosewood fingerboard, inlay block or dots color, pup cover color.
    they all work together IMO.
     
  3. Burst or Oly White.

    although i do like me some oly white.
    even though a lot of companies use it,
    i think vintage fender when i see it.
     
  5. That Candy Tangerine was pretty cool. They pull it out every once in a while. I think they put it on an American Deluxe not too long ago. If I ever run across one for sale, I'll try and snag it.

    I also liked the Trans Blue or Turquiose or whatever Fender called it over an ash body. Wow.

    Alas, neither of these are in your poll. A lot of the colors in the poll I find tiresome.
     
  6. candy apple red and i like the candy tangerine

    oh and btw its colour not color

    Surf Green , Fiesta Red and Shoreline Gold , but no matter the color a custom color headstock bumps up the coolness factor a few notches .
     
  9. Although light blue is not my favorite color, I love my Sonic Blue MIA Fender P. Of the Fender colors, it is one of my favorites.
     
  10. ive always wondered why you dont use the u in alot of words
