    Interested in a gray quilt or flame for a new custom. More interested in a medium gray, but I wouldn't rule out light or dark. I've looked on Bass Central & Bass Northwest. Saw a couple black quilt & flame that were O.K., but really looking for gray. Anyway...anyone know where I might find a picture or two?

    Bass Player had an article on Juan Nelson a while back where he had an absolutely stunning grey flamed MTD. They're not usually my thing.

    Sorry, no picture, so I guess not much help...

    Thanks anyway dlloyd. Yeah, I know it's a pretty uncommon color. Probably why I'm interested in it, lol. Thinkin' of a bloodwood fretboard with it, chrome hardware, chrome active pups if I can find them.

    It might be more black than gray, but I still think it's stunning.

    This is Akito's Marchlewski singlecut headless wonder:

  6. I would go with a medium grey/translucent black. The above bass looks great. I think I prefer the flame over quilt. I wondered what a carbon fiber pick guard would do visually in a vintage design.
