    In a further attempt to prove that I don't only love Bongos, this is my new Stingray, an eBay score that turns out to be a very nice bass.

    Now strung with TI Flats, she's a thumpy old school tone machine.

    Very cool. I like it much more with the white pearl guard than the black one.

    Sweet.

    You're lying, that's definatly a Bongo. You just reshaped it and took off one of the pickups.

    JK, congrats.

    Bleeb it or not, that is Burnt Apple, a finish I never cared for in all the photos I saw but which actually looks pretty good in real life - and when photographed in natural light.

    It's got little sparkles, too, but you can only see them with flash photography, which is not my favorite way to take Bass Porno pictures.

    Burnt apple is a sunburst with a redder middle?

    It's...sooo...beautiful... :bawl:
     
  11. I think burnt apple is medium red fading to darker red fading to black.
    No gold/yellow at all.

    I could be wrong.

    Beautiful bass, man. ***GAS builds***
     
  13. Damn that looks good.

    Enjoy.
     
  14. Always loved BA finish!
     
  15. Since when has BrokenAngel had her own finish? I got to get me one of those finishes :p

    bovinehost - nice bass. My cousin has the same finish on his SR5 and I fell in love when I saw it. Good choice! Now where are those sound clips? :bassist:

    Sweet Bovinehost!!! I absolutely love it!!! Looks just like mine 'cept for the pickguard... mine's black. Looks really good with the pearloid; didn't think it would but your bass has proven me wrong.
    The color is very difficult to convey in photos because of the sparkles in the finish. That's what I like about it, the light has to be just right to see them, but to me, it looks good from any angle in any light. You'd have to pry mine from my cold, dead hands. Congrats and enjoy.

    Not to worry, Jack - I've always known and accepted that you swing both ways. Not that there's anything wrong with that...
     
  20. hey bovine, you obviously know what youre doing with a camera so could you give me some simple tips on how to get good pictures of a bass? i just got my GT7 but all the pictures i take turn out very lackluster.
