    Did you first own quilt or flame maple on a bass ? The first bass I had with figured maple was with a quilt top.
     
  2. Never had a figured wood on a bass....My jazz guitar has amazing flamed maple, back and sides anyways....On the other hand, Carrot cake is mighty tasty......yeah...Cake for me.

    Quilt? Flame? Nah...ruins the resonance of the wood. Everyone KNOWS straight grain resonates truer with well-controlled overtones. The only reason they put EQ on amps is to compensate for the undesirable overtones introduced by fancy veneer overlays! ;)

    Hamer Sunburst, like the pic but much more "tiger-y". Another one that got away from me. :bawl:

    The red Cirrus custom. It looks much nicer in person, but is hard to photograph.

    Quilt, then flamed. On a body, I generally prefer quilted to flamed too.

    Quilt, it was my first $3000.00 bass, and I took it into the bath tub! :D:D:D

    Sorry, Major, I couldn't resist.

  19. Yamaha RBX6JM. Sweet bass. Flame. Picked it up at MF (pre Guitar Center) for $499 on red tag sale. Like everything I buy, I eventually sold it.
