    Does anybody own one of these? The pictures shown on online stores make it look almost black, and I was wanting to see what it REALLY looked like. I think with a pearloid pickguard, it'd look real nice. :bassist: Anyways, anyone own one?

    I've got a Precision in that color. Yes, they are very dark and look way better in person than in any picture I've seen. They have a metallic sheen as well. Sort of like the MIA chrome red darkened a few shades. In person, the bass is darker than it came out in the pic.

  3. Midnight Wine is notoriously hard to photograph properly. It's hard to describe... maybe a bit darker and more purple than bino's pic, if I remember correctly. Beautiful color, though.
  4. Hi,yes I have one in the Midnight wine color.It is such a great color,very rich looking and smooth.I do agree with ya on the white pearlized pickguard,god I love them.It would definately brighten her up.Good luck Joe

    I had a midnight wine mexican jazz...what a beautifull bass. The color is awesome...its like a dark red wine color with almost a metallic sheen to it.

    It's one of my favorite fender colors... pictures can't really do it justice.

    I've got a fretless midnight wine Jazz, but IMO, they're much sexier with a black pickguard.

    Dark wine is a good description. Not a burgundy, but a Merlot color. I had a Jazz with a white pearloid guard. Really nice combo.

    the roughesst and most exact aproximation to the colour would be the les paul wine red. Although the lp is thranslucent, it is teh closest aproximation i could think of. Like a Ric fireglow, it is a very hard colour to photograph. Probably like a CAR, if youve never seen one, youd be surprised by it....
