Coulour schemes.....

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by stevecool_skint, Mar 9, 2006.

  1. ... i have a realy old 'cricket bat' of a bass that i first learnt on and I have decided that I need to treat this baby to a facelift. It is a standard body shape (fender Jazz) and I have stripped her naked and removed all of the paint from the body.

    I am looking for insparation for a paint scheme / graphics that I can do on the body so that I can display it on the wall! anyone got a custom paint job on their bass? any ideas?:eyebrow:

    Cricket bat huh?

    Try linseed oil. And don't forget to knock it in with an old ball. It leaves behind great looking cherries that fools everyone into thinking you can actually bat.
  3. Ahh yes, the old English cricket team trick.....
