    So turquoise/aqua/teal has been my favorite color since I was a kid. Well, I finally got all my teal basses together in in one picture. Some of these made the blue basses thread, and some of them made the green basses thread, but actually they are sort of in-between. Enjoy! :)

    I think they have medcations for this condition. I'm sure there's a doctor that can help you.

    But seriously, that is a beautiful collection. I like the looks of them all together.

    Almost looks as if someone tinted the picture in Photoshop. :D

    That's an unbelievable matching collection of basses you've got there.

  10. Remeber, these are just the TEAL ones. There's about 35 other non-teal ones!

    I can help. Gimme the Wal! :D
  15. Great collection!

    I'm well into the aquamarine thing, being as colour blind as you can get, it used to frustrate the hell out of me when I was younger, now it amuses me, especially when I see a superb collection of basses in the one colour that fries the brain cells that sort colour :)

  16. Pretty awsome collection.
    But the bass i still want the most from you is your 77 yellow Ric. :D
  17. Wonderful basses but what to do..... :

    You forgot a pizza a quarter of hour, when you remember, you hurry to light th... surprisingly Gasz exploded and then...
    (actual true story already happened to me!)

    In case home burning and only one hand left, which one would you rescue away first?
    Wal or Alembic I presume?

  18. :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:

    Wow, that's one of the best pictures of any collection I've ever seen. Wonderful, just wonderful! Congratulations!

    I won't say I hate you for this, but the green (red?) monster named jealousy has certainly reared it's ugly head! :spit:

    I'll just have to go down for a therapeutic (sp?) photo session of my collection, hopefully that'll do the trick... :help:

    Nice collection! :cool:
    And these are just the teal ones... dont you think you have too many basses and most o these dont get the playing they deserve - you should give some away :D

    BTW, which is your favourite teal one?
    anyway, they are all gorgeous :cool:
