    This color combo is surprisingly sweet.

    Saw that one on Instagram.
    G&L really knows how to make a bass look special.
    If only it had a matching headstock...

    What really makes it look so good is the dark edge on the sunburst. If it was a straight green stain, it wouldn't look as sharp.

    Yeah, sweet bass, for sure.

    My eyes. :eek: Easily remedied with a black guard though. Would be ideal with an ebony board as well.

    I’m usually good with tort on most any finish. I’m thinking a mint or white, maybe white pearl.

    I agree about changing to a black guard but solid black.

    I love that G&L doesn’t shy away from real greens like pretty much every other big builder. Fender has recently gotten a bit bolder with greens other than sea foam, but G&L has always done green well.

    Their ash bodies have the most beautiful grain.

    And their Instagram page is fun to follow.

    I'm not anti-tort. But that particular bass would look better with a black guard to me.

    That looks STUNNING with the tort. Do not change a thing. Great color combo.
