I like this one...in fact...i liked it so much i ordered an MIA standard fender in this colour. Hopefully it dont take too long.
I realy like the transparent finishes. I want to at least see some wood grain. But with the right type of wood you can't beat the natural, oiled, finish.
Usually I'm an exotic-wood type of guy. But for some reason this causes me to sweat profusely...
Here are some examples of JP Basses's finishes...
I really like these two:
I also like transparent finishes on some basses, Sunburst, blueburst, cherryburst etc.
I know the guy who owns this bass and have played it several times. It is a pretty slammin' bass but it is *heavy* beyond belief. It is heavy northern ash with an ebony top...don't know if you can get much worse But on the upside it plays and sounds fantastic. Definitely a good choice there Lenko
Oh yeah, it is also MUCH darker in person.
I'd love to try that bass once; it really looks fantastic. I bet it sounds simillar.
I was reading a guitar mag and there was an add for a company that chromes your bass.it looks sooooo.. cool ,to many finger prints though
This is the place that chrome plates guitars. Interesting concept.
Those spalted woods are niiice (I'm assuming it's spalted). And I'd name my first born "Dude" for that Aria Explorer (shows where my tastes lie!).
But I personally love the Harlequin Prismatique finish on my Carvin:
Most people I know think it's gaudy, and my band-mates call it the "Liberace bass" - but I think it's very cool - sorta like the old Gretsch finishes.
But when the day is done, I'll take a flamed koa bass over just about anything...
I've posted this before, but this finish closed the deal on the bass I already loved the sound of!
My F Bass Studio
