    I've got a chance to buy an ergodyne bass for $270 (the ebd600 i believe) I can choose between pearl white and grey pewter. Now I remember seeing the Pearl White finish in a catalog a long time ago and I fell in love, it has always been my favorite finish... recently I saw another pic though and it looked more "off white"... I don't know if it was just the camera that took the pic or what. So does anyone know if the pearl white finish is indeed white? or more of a yellow? If anyone has a pic of a bass in this finish (preferably not from a catalog) could you post it. The pearl white color I have seen in catalogs looks amazing but I want to make sure it actually looks like this in person.
     
  2. in this ebay auction it looks pretty yellow-ish. could be because of the lighting of something. it's also a coupla years old; so it could have yellowed; maybe???
    i would go with white pearl; but not if it's yellow-y.
    where are you getting it? could you see it ahead of time? if you're ordering it, is there a return-type-dealy?

    Thats another color alltogether. It's a sort of tarnished pearl color, definitely NOT the White color. I've seen them in person, and it looks pretty nice, actually. Much nicer and less abrasive than the Pearl White.
