I have seen a couple of finishes that have really caught my eye and was wondering what type they are and how they (if anything special) are done. Here they are. #1) Lefay Pangton. I won't post the pic as it is huge so a link will have to do. BTW, can anybody tell me what kind of it might be? Their site is in German and can't find what wood they used. Here is the pic: http://lefay.de/albums/Pangton-5/IM002239.jpg #2) MTD 435. Here is the pic: http://i17.ebayimg.com/01/i/03/dd/d9/55_3.JPG Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm considering something similar for my first self-built bass. Thanks.
