    So I was about a 20 min drive away from buying a Fender sting bass when I was talking to my guitar player. I was telling him how I'm just about to leave to go order one. Then I showed him the link. What fallowed was just plain pain with no gain.
    "Man that is the same colour as my new Fender strat. Wont it be strange to have the same colours?"

    I cried the rest of the day :bawl:

    I should have noticed the colour. He says get it wont be wired. We all know when some one says "it wont be wired" it will be wired.

    :crying: :bawl:

    Actually, I don't think it'd be that wierd; but that's just me. My band used to have pretty much matching gear. All of the guitars were blue. People thought it was pretty tight. If anything, I'd say go for it and don't mind if he thinks it's "wierd" or not. Besides, and don't take this the wrong way, who says you're going to be playing with him for the rest of your life?

    Go with your gut. It's almost guaranteed to lead you in the right direction.

    In my experience, this only pertains when the person that says it is of the opposite sex.

    I can't spell either!!!!!!!!!!

    It would be different if I had other bass's to switch with or if his first reaction was "Man that would look so cool us matching" but then I would be worried because he wants us to match.

    Or parents...

    I think it would look cool too, loads of music videos bands use matching instruments to get the look.

    I'm speechless . . . I don't know what would I do if that happened to me . . . that is why I don't play in bands, so no guitar player will show up with an instrument the same color as mine... :p

    Ay caramba!

    I don't think there is anything weird about that at all. Me and my guitarist back in Mass. used to color coordinate our axes intentionally whenever possible. :oops:

    Make sure to bring his guitar whenever you are looking at basses now, because you certainly don't want to clash.

    I saw this one band that all had matching light blue fenders (2 strats, 1 p bass). So long as it isn't a gimmick, who cares?

    DUUUUUDE ;) Why is that bothering you? The sting bass is sunburst, right? A MILLION people play sunburst guitars and basses! That's not strange or weird.
    Do yourself a pleasure and buy it. Seriously, are you going to let your band decide the colour of YOUR instrument?
    Seriously, buy it ;)
