On my Ice cream sundae? Do any UK TB'ers remember Walnut Whips - they all had a walnut on the top!
When I was a kid we used to get Walnuts off a tree that grew in the woods near the local library - nice!
I think it looks mysterious yet beautiful.
Ya I love a nice walnut top on a bass.
i really like walnut.
ken smith has some beautiful ones on his website.
yes, i like that a lot. i'm a big fan of relatively unfinished basses - fancy flame maple tops and such don't do a lot for me.
i prefer the second one, first ones a bit dark (might be the lighting), very nice though
i'm also not a fan of overly fancy tops, like FMT's etc
I like it. You gonna buy it for me?
Absolutely! Very rich. Very elegant. Very expensive?
Don't we all like walnut when it comes like this? (sorry about the size)
That's beautiful. But 7 strings? I can't play 4, so what am I gonna do with the extra 3?
it's not bad for backs either...
my top isn't as fancy as the Hannie/KS/Mod, but I'm liking it so far. There's a little flame in it, but it doesn't really show in the pics.
Okay...I'm gonna be the bad guy.
I don't like walnut for tops. It makes the bass look to much like furniture. Not enough going on usually, too dark, and just not visually appealling to me. But just because I think this, does not make it fact.
For the record, I like a light colored body and a dark fretboard. Usually cloud quilted maple, or maybe a nice ash grain. Ebony or rosewood for a fretboard and I'm a happy guy. I only have one bass that has a colored top on it...odd.
Yep! Especially if they're quilted!
But there's light-colored furniture too.
expecially if hand carved
LOVE that Modulus! There was a Q5F around the time that I got my Modulus that had a KILLER walnut top. I wanted to die just looking at it.
Walnut is a GREAT wood for tops if it has flamed, curling, burling, or quilting. Plain it's just that...plain. But with good figuring, there's not much better.
I like it on my Roscoe 6 fretless:
that is one sweet looking roscoe
what up, bad claw bass:
I am a big Figured Walnut lover
