    I don't know that much about different basses, but I know I need one of those.

    What is GAS btw?

    Almost perfect.
    I'd change the white guard for a black one, same for the PU cover, and then change the chrome knobs for black ones.
    But that's just a matter of cosmetics, not that really important.
     
  12. I'm thinking maybe white pearloid

    I hope you really like that bass, because I got my SR5 brand new for a dollar less than what you paid for that used one, haha. It's burnt apple too which is I believe among the most expensive finishes. Hope you like it! :bassist:

    IMO, it looks best as it is now. Though a white pearloid pickguard would look nice, too.

    That blueburst finish is rare/discontinued guys, so it's not like there's a new one lying around. It's probably a little more than I'd put out, but if you really want a bass, do what it takes to get it. At least he didn't pay MORE than new.

    Now you're thinking right.

    The price for a used SR5 is a little high, but you know what? In a couple of months, you won't care what you paid, only that you have one rockin' good bass.

    I love Stingray 5s.

    Hey - nice to meet you. I'm Jack.
     
  17. Why you trying to steal my joy? I'm happy I love the color. :p
     
  18. Thanks to all for the support even Hofbrauhaus :D .

    And back at you Jack

    Hehe...cuz I'm EVIL and jealous that you have a blue SR5 cuz...well...to be truthful...I have my red bass...the Burnt Apple SR5...and now I want a BLUE bass like what YOU have! But...guess what...I'll be getting a Carbon Blue Pearl Dual Bucker Bongo mofo biznatch in the near future, then I will have my Red an Blue basses! All I need is like...a trans white F-bass or something then I can be the most patriotic person on talk bass! Ok...I'm going to have to lay off the crack... :D :eek: :bassist:
